An update:40 pounds of sand is in and 1/2 tank of pre-mixed saltwater. Having to make more, and have another 5 gallons mixed for tomorrow. Then I will make more. At the moment, my tank looks like it's half full of chocolate milk with marshmallows. The problem is, by only adding 5 gallons of water at a time, I will keep the sand stirred up for a week. Best I can do unless I were to trust an LFS
to have changed their filters for some good ro
saltwater, which I don't. Think I'll go ahead and pump the 5gallons that just needs to "mellow" a while longer into one of my jugs, and go ahead and start making five more gallons tonight. Sounds like a plan!!
