Petco saltwter ok?

My guy is going on vacation. I always get my water pre mixed from him (5 gallons).

Would one weekend be ok using Petco SW water rather then skipping it?

Thanks

I used petco water to start my 36. If i remember correctly it was alittle high, but only 1.026. I was using a hydrometer at the time, so who truly knows.

Thanks!!

I'll just skip it.... Don't wanna ruin a good thing. Do you thing it will be ok for 2 weeks? I'm nervous cause the tank has been doing great and I don't wanna bump in the road so to speak.

With all the filtration you have it should be ok...space out feedings some more to ensure?

Hank once again perfect way of saying. Cut feeding in half.. half the available nitrates half the needing for a water change.
