why would you need mixed saltwater ready? top-offs are done with freshwater, not saltwater.
I think I came across wrong in my first post. I was implying that if pearsont74 was using salt (like most brands) that doesn't mix at very good CA
levels i would just keep some stabalized water on hand for water changes and if necessary, buffer that water as needed to keep the levels high enough and in balance to keep things like PH
swings and un natural conditions to a minimum.
I agree its not all that important to work at maintaining them for a setup like his, but I figure with a little water change buffering and minor testing pearsont74 will find that once they are where he wants them to be, they won't really flux all that much anyhow.
As far as keeping pre-mixed saltwater, I just think its good practice, thats why I suggested it. New tanks often find ways to loose water and dumping salt into a bucket of tap and pouring it right in isn't necessarily the best way to go about it IMO
. Hope that clears up the perspective I was taking my first post from.
