The rock came from reefcleaners and the salt is regular old instant ocean.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Its a half cup per gallon. The one baggie will make 5 gallons. You need to measure out the second baggie since you don't need another 5 gallons what with the rock and sand.

grab one of your moms measuring cups and use that til you can get to a dollar store and get your own. its only salt so its safe.

using 1/2 cup of IO salt will get you to approximately 1.025 salinity.

Use your bucket. Is it marked on the side for how much is in there? i use a bucket which has the gallons on the side so its easy. You can also measure out the water from an empty water bottle and mark it on the side of the pail.
