Is your tank empty i.e. just glass and no sand or rock. If so you can add about 1/2 a cup per gal and mix for 24 hours using a couple of PH and then check your SG and add more salt to increase or fresh water to decrease.


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P

I agree with Micah. Just add to water only. Make sure NO sand or rock is in there when you add your salt.
