Oh, to stir the water? Definitely get the ph recommended above, it will be much easier on your hand!

I use a small PH to mix my salt up as well, it moves something like 295gph. One thing I have notice is that if I add the salt slowly and give the PH a chance to work I don't have nearly the settling that I used to when I just added all the salt needed for a given amount of water. I also agree that much more flow is going to be needed for your tank. One other thing....I wouldn't use your hand to stir your salt mix up. Use something like a large plastic serving spoon that can be dedicated to the tank and NOT washed in SOAP. Soap or other chemicals that may be on yourhands can cause porblems in your tank.

Well i never thought about the spoon thanks for that advice. I currently have a penguin bio wheel 350 filter, the 660 penguin ph, a 65 gallon coralife skimmer. I plan on using the tank for fowlr. I want to start of with one clown and one yellow tail damsel.

The clown would be nice, what kind? I would skip the damsel, they tend to get agressive as they get older. My yellow tails aren't that bad, but they are in with a blue devil and 3 stripe. Each group has their 3rd of the tank.
