Well, I was doing my 1st water change tonight (just finished cycling) and I was planning to refill the tank with some of the left over water i got from the LFS
last month when I first bought my tank. They sell it in 10 gallon jugs. Somehow I took out about 3 gallons more than I had replace with. Now my tank it sitting idle (water level about 2 inches under the power head).
My question is....Since the LFS
is about an hour away from where I live will it hurt to top it off with some Oceanic or Instant Ocean? If so, which one? Will that start the cycling process over again? I can get that here in town. If not, the tank will have to sit literally idle until Saturday before I could make it to the LFS
. Will that hurt anything? I do not have any fish in there as my cycle is wrapping up (only LR
). I was planning to get some crabs and a few snails this weekend.
Thanks for your help!
