Try to make sure there are no dead spots on the LR. Also the salt on the lid is conductive to electricity so that is a huge major safety concern!

Oh ok, thanks doug.
Yeh I read that for starting a fishless cycle I can mix the salt water in the tank itself. Won't be doing that ever again lol
Like I said all the undissolved salt is out now, and I always premix.

Forget your bike, it's time to cycle that tank!
