salt water storage

Do I need an air stone in my storage tank or is a power head enough?

Even though a ph is enough have it aimed slightly up to create some good surface aggitation and help aerate your water. Its not the airstone but surface aggitation.

Just make sure that you let the system run some before using the water...I want to say BRS recommends throwing the first 10 gallons out while all the 'old' water or things get set up.
