I have a few questions I would like to know the answers to.
Just for Info's sake:
I have a 125 gallon with some fish, aneome, and live rock. I do weekly water changes of 25 gallons. I use a filter to deionize the water before mixing. I also use this filter when topping off, (which I don't do too much because of the constant water changes). Any other information you may need just post here and I will post it up.
1. Can you premix a concentrated saltwater solution in advance? How long can you "keep" this solution before it will become unusable?
I want to be able to make up a concentrated gallon of Salteater and when ready to do water changes, add it to a five gallon bucket of DI
2. If concentated saltwater cannot be used as above, can I premix water into five gallon buckets in advance and seal them from when I need them? How long can you keep these if it is possible?
3. I have found some rocks that I would like to put into my tank. They are typical Flagstone type of rock. I want to build a base wall for the live rock that I have now. Can I use these rocks? If so, what should I do to make sure that they are "clean" enough to put into the tank? I know the flag stone is not really porus enough, but I intend on using them just for a base to build from.
