Nah. Just trying to be as prepared as possible I guess. Figured this way if for some odd reason the water does have copper in it then at least I didn't waste time heating it all up and waste the salt that was added.
Any tips on adding the salt since we're on that topic? Turn off the main return pump or keep all the pumps going? It's Red Sea Pro. I'll be using a Hydrometer for the time being but have been researching refractometers.
Also you mentioned earlier that I should add the sand after the rocks are in place. Is there anything I can do to prep the sand for being put into the main tank? If I can do anything to cut down on the sand storm that follows that would be amazing. I know that it needs rinsed. Should it be rinsed with RO
water? Can I put 10g or so of RO
into my 20g tank then pour in the sand and swirl it around for rinsing and get rid of the water from that? Should one good rinse be good? I was thinking of a 2" sand bed for the main tank which would require about 52lbs of sand. 1" of sand in my fuge would require about 6lbs of sand. I'm thinking (2) of the 30lb bags I got will work out perfectly.
After the sand is rinsed I can fill the 20g tank back up with RO
and throw a Maxi-jet 1200 in there to keep water circulating until the live rock is ready to be put in?
