No, once the SW is mixed you can use an aerstone or other method to aerate.

In its great blue whales, hunted even to

I've got a 15 gallon glass tank that I'm going to store mixed saltwater in for emergencies. I have a plastic lid for it - would you recommend securing the lid down with sticky tape while it's being stored?

And, I shouldn't aerate the water while it's being stored should I? How long can my water be kept if it's not aerated, and should it be kept in a cool, dry place, or a place at room temperature?

On a similar note, for hospital/quarantine tank etc., if I fill my OTHER 15 gallon glass tank (my QT tank) with water from my main tank, and put some filter media from my main filter in the QT tank filter and mix it with the new filter media, do I still need to cycle the QT/hospital tank before I put any fish in it, or is it just a case of letting things settle down for a few hours and then being able to put a fish in?
