Re: !!!!!!!!!!!adding salt help!!!!!!!!!

what would that be in Fahrenheit? It would have to be between 75-84 F to test. Might I suggest you get a refractometer they are 100% accurate

Give it about a week to add LR. You have to let the Saltwater age. It should be clear by tomorrow if the filter is on.

Re: !!!!!!!!!!!adding salt help!!!!!!!!!

What kind of filter are you running? I think crushed coral creates more nitrate problems unless you have a high flow rate.
