O.K., after an exaustive search of the net (5 min. max) I found out what Javex is. Javex (or Javex-12) is a trade name for a type of bleach.

I set the S.G. about 1.016-1.019. I don't usually do a water change on the QT (no medications building up) but if I did it would be with new S.W. mixed to the proper S.G.

Why did you put the inverts in the QT? Does the QT have a light on it that can meet the clams needs? Was the tang in QT before you put in all the others?

Drill a small hole in the return line at the level you want the tank to drain to. As the water level drops to the level of the hole you drilled, air entering the pipe will break the siphon.
