Why do you let it sit 3 days?invert.junkie;89351 said:I let mine mix 3 days before usage, what do you all do and why?
Three days seems like overkill to me, 24 hours should be fine. There have been repots of freshly mixed saltwater doing damage to all kinds of animals, which is why the general recommendation is let it mix for 24 hours. Of course, matching parameters is also important - pH, alk, temp, salinity etc.invert.junkie;89384 said:I work at the University of Oregon, and my boss told me to do it that way. He is convinced that in the past using freshly mixed SW has killed Cuttlefish in the lab before. I just wanted to see if anyone had ever heard of that or are they being overly careful.
