    Please can someone help me on this matter:
    I have just purchased Red Sea Coral pro Salt and unfortunately I have a problem because all measuring equipment I have is ml measurements. The tub says 36g/l and therefore if I am doing a 25L water change the salt that needs to be used is 900g but I have no idea how to measure 900g in ml. I don't want to mix any salt unless its spot on. Another quick question is when I am circulating my water, with my powerhead, in the tub that I have mixed my salt in, must I aerate it using the breather pipe or is that not necessary?

    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks guys

    If you want to mix it spot on then you have to weigh it. A digital kitchen scale from clicks is all you need and they only cost 100 bucks. Measuring by volume is very inaccurate.
