My friend finally brought over the SW
tank she is selling us and we are eager to get it set up and cycling. Only problem is that we do not have a large enough container to mix the whole 65 gallons of water. We have four 5 gal
So, how can we do this? I found vids on youtube that said to let the water mix with a powerhead overnight, so that brings us down to just one 5 gal
bucket at a time!
My question is, can we just mix up the water and place it in the tank with the powerhead? There won't be any fish for a good 6 or so weeks or however long it takes to cycle.
I am concerned about the little bit of water in the tank now going stagnate and the bacteria we have dying off. It will be next week before we can get a big, 55 gal
