Water changes

Postby Surface » 2006-01-20 13:13

Ok as you know im turning the puffer tank brackish and I cleaned it once while it was still FW now its ready for another cleaning and it measures 1.004 on the hydrometer. My question is ... when I replace the water that I take out I need to make sure that it has the same salt content right? So to do this Im confused on how much salt to add to replacement water. I use gallon jugs and so this means I need to check each gallon separately? Or is there a way to add the salt to only one jug that will equal the total salt for all of them?

Dear Lord am I making any sense? :blink:

Hi

I have a brakish puffer tank. The way I did it was to measure on kitchen scales how many grammes / ounces of salt went into my tank to get the correct reading on my hydromiter.

Then I had to work out how much water exactly was in the tank after all the rocks and gravel e.t.c was in there.

I ususally do a 30% water change.

Depending on how much of a water change you want do. You should be able to work out how much salt to add to each jug full. :)

I hope that makes sence to you. :D

each jug will have the same salt content. you would need to do is mix a whole bucket of water with the salt untill you get the correct concentration. if you just miss the mark, dilute the SW untill it's just perfect.

LET IT STAND FOR 24 HOURS so that the pH has time to stop fooling around.

test salinity

now do the w/c as normal

I'm a bit out of my depth here, but I would suggest that putting all the salt in one jusg and using plain water for the other jugs would be a bit unpredictable.

It would be harder to measure how much salt would be in the entire water change.

Ok, I got it. I like the big bucket idea, think I can figure that out. Just dont want to disturb puff after what was going on earlier this week. BTW his belly is looking better everyday. Thank you for the help.

i expect you'd need about 1.5 tea spoons of salt/gallon to reach 1.004 on the scale (that's how much i needed for a recent salt bath)

Thank you Kat, I was wondering what amount of salt to start off with. Now off to find a bucket that is clean. Oh think I might try our cooler that way Ill just put the water in gallon at a time, has a lid so kittys wont drink from it, and spicket of put the water back into the jugs to put into the tank. Ok think I can handle this.

I mean the little drain that you use to empty the water out of the cooler when the ice melts (spicket). Putting the water into gallon jugs is the only way I can get it back into the tank due to where the tank is set up, not much head room over the tank. Did that make sense?

It does now! It will be much easier for you to mix it all up in one go, and esier to test to make sure they are both the same sg.

Good luck with the changing!

Ok, the water change went well and puff seems to be doing fine. It did take awhile to get the water right but I did it thanks to everyones help. Also I goofed in showing my youngest daughter pics of the nano reefs, now she wants me to set one up in her room. Dont think Im ready for that yet. Been reading Kev's info on them and know I need to study up a lot more before we go there!
