Just picked up 2.5 gallons of RO
water. I'm going to use this to top off over the next few days as my salt is in the 1.026 range. If things don't work out by Wed - then I'll dump - and buy water and new live sand. This will get rid of having to use any of the stuff.
Thanks - as always being a newbie - I just should have gotten pure water - but was told we could treat it if there was an issue. What I should have done was picked up the tank - gotten it ready to fill and then brought our tap water back to the LFS
. Then we would have caught it, and I could have just gotten water.
Oh well - at least I know what to do in the future. I still don't even have anything living in the main tank but I can see this is like learning to snowboard or anything else - baby steps, and then one day you really fly.
