Added a bottle-baffle to cut down the flow from my new huge HOB.

My mystery snail always checks out anything new in the tank, so he went to explore the baffle. Poor thing, I found him stuck in the whirling water inside the baffle, going round and round.

I pushed him out, and he sank to the bottom in a snail-sulk for quite a while!

Tested all tanks after the water changes yesterday. Resisting the temptation to move things from my 29 tall to my empty 30 long. Thats gonna be a long job and I need more time than I can take today to get it done. Sigh :-/
I have too many projects in mind and not enough time to do them all

Added fresh RODI and salt to the 20 long, raised the temp to 76 to try and have it dissolve faster...

I don't own a marine system but the brackish is premixed in a 25litre container and permanently fed with an airline, I mix a 1litre super saline solution in a jug with an egg whisk then dilute to SG with RO. It is pretty much ready to go but as above I always wait until the following day before use.

I will do the same when I go marine.
