1. I mix my SW
in a big ol' rubbermaid container with a powerhead then store it in 6 gallon water jugs. How long should I aerate before adding to the tank, and can I use an airstone instead of a ph
? The airstone fits into the jug but the ph
doesn't. (And yep, I do check the salinity right before adding.
2. This is, no doubt, a really dumb question and I know I will be dope-slapping myself as soon as I get an answer. But I've often seen people saying they transfer water to their tank/sump using a ph
. Okay, I don't get it. How? 'Cause mine just suck water in and spit it out 2 inches away and that wouldn't do much good. Attach tubing to the return? I know I'm missing the obvious!
