Saving Water?

Can I save saltwater in gallon container without any problems? Like when the water from the tank evaporates I can put water from the container with out having to run to the store every three days. So what do you think?

You can save water in jugs but when your water evaporates you dont wanna put more SW in you wanna put FW in the water evaporates. The salt stays in there.

Yep, the only thing I'll add is to use some sort of cover on whatever you're keeping the water in. Especially if you have kids/pets in the house. You dont want something getting into the water and then into your tank.
