I figure with 25g of ro/di, topped off now and again with 10 ro/di gallons, anything that sinks to the bottom will just get stirred up and mixed eventually. So I just put in about a pound, and will wash out the tub periodically. Hope there will be no problem with this imprecision. It is hard to be precise with a garbage can.

The grid floor holds my topoff pump up and well away from the slurry in the bottom, and a Brute has a 2x2" depressed ring around the outside base, so that is where the slurry tends to be. So only the filmy stuff can get up through the grid [about 15" up] to reach the topoff pump.


Salinity 1.024-6; alkalinity 8.3-9.3 on KH scale; calcium 420; magnesium 1300, temp 78-80, nitrate .2. Ammonia 0. No filters: lps tank. Alk and cal won't rise if mg is low.

Current Tank Info: 105g AquaVim wedge, chromis, royal gramma basslet, tailspot blenny, ocellaris clown, yellow watchman, chestnut turbo snails, bristleworms, couple of hermits.
