john, sorry i missed it earlier but sea water can work but only if you can collect it from an area with no pollution, sometimes excessive spikes will be obatined on ammonia test kits due to planktonic die off etc.

synthetic sea salt is always the safer option :smile:

wow, i guess i got lucky, the aquarium stores around here charge 50 cent per gallon of saltwater with correct salinity, ph and evrything, and the grocery sells RO for about $1.50 for 5 gallons.
