Hi all! I need help.I am starting my first FOWLR
. I have dechlorinated water and "live sand" along with a few pieces of "live rock" (just to get started). Hoewver, I purchased and added "Instant Ocean" to my tank today. By following the directions on the back it stated to add 1/2 cup per gallon of water so I added a total of 27.5 cups to the water being a 55 gal
tank. Now, I wait! 30 minutes after adding the salt to the tank (straight to the tank since there is nothing in there) and testing my specific gravity it reads almost off the chart. Too much salt! Is it possibly that all the salt hasn't dissolved and that if I wait longer it will read more accurately? Is there a calibration step I am missing with my "Coralife deep six hydrometer"? I don't know what I may have done wrong. I'd hate to find out that I wasted a large amount of salt and that I have to drain water to add freshwater to my tank. Any advise?
