Step 2 - Make Up The Saltwater


 

Sometime over a 24 hour period while running the wet test outlined in Step 1:

Make up the sea salt mix.

This is best done dissolving it in a separate container of an appropriate size and material, and using a proper freshwater source. Add a heater and small air or water pump for circulation and adjust the specific gravity to the desired salinity, if needed.

When it comes time to fill the tank with the saltwater, prior to using it, turn off the heater and air or water pump and allow any undissolved particles in the mix to settle to the bottom.

If you do not have a container large enough to meet the demand of saltwater needed to initially fill the aquarium, if necessary, it can be mixed in the tank in the same manner after the next step.
