Use the aqua clear for a fresh water tank its not going to be even close to enough for a 75 saltwater reef

But the live rock and sand do most of the bio filtration

I am going to make a brief list of questions I have, not many but I want to cover as much ground as we can in one shot. I'll be here about this time tomorrow and post.

I'm getting closer, assembling the complete BRS RO/DI system this week-end. I have a list of questions.

Is there a shelf life for stored water?
Do I need the powerheads for curing my live dry rock? what size?
If I start with fish, inverts and dry live rock and do not add corals do I need powerheads?
Once the Instant Ocean salt has dissolved in my storage tank should I still let the powerheads run?

How long to mix the salt in my RO/DI water with the powerheads, and what GPH flow rate do I need or size of powerhead to do my mixing?

You do not need a powerhead to cure the live lock just leave it in a container with with salt water

You do not need a power head but I would just get one so the fish are used to the flowing water.
