Hi and WELCOME
You might want to start by reading Getting started thread
and then check out the articles section.
How did you test the salinity, using a hydrometer or a refractometer?
You can just add salt mix till you get to the desired SG
. It will dissolve, thogh I prefer to mix it with RODI
ater to a higher concentration (1.030) and add that.. How did you mix the orignal batch?
What kind of filter is running in the tank (make and model)?
Is this going to be a FOWLR
or a reef tank?
If you are looking to run natural filtration then you need a bit more rock (base or LR
). The recommended amount is 1˝-2 pounds per gallon of capacity.
Do you have any powerheads running in the tank?
