Late last night, I received a PM from Larry @ underwateroutlets.com with my tracking # for the LR
I recently ordered. I figured I would have a couple days to confirm all is good, but Low and Behold, the LR
will arrive TODAY!!!!
I don't think I'm ready!!!!
Here is where I stand:
The Tank is Filled with Sand and Water.
PowerHeads are running
Skimmer is running
Temp is rising, but is only at 72deg.
So.. Last night I attempted to mix my Instant Ocean Salt into the filled tank. I read the directions on the Hydrometer I purchased and it said I need fill the Hydro with Salt water and let it sit for 24hours to "season the needle". Does that mean it will NOT give accurate reading until then?
Right now, my Hydro is reading approx 1.021SG at 72deg water temps. Is this OK to add the LR
when it arrives?
The tank has been filled with SW
for only 10+ hours now. I know it normally needs some time to aerate.. I assume Fedex will arrive withing the next 4 hours. So, in theroy, I could be adding LR
So, to repeat my 2 questions:
1 - Can I trust my Hydrometer Readings yet?
2 - LR
is coming, am I ready to add it? I don't want to harm it.
