    Hi Hennie

    firstly id like to say hi to all.i cant believe that ive overlooked a hobby such as this.i had a tropical setup when i was a teen,but this is a whole new game.:thumbup:

    So ive purchased a tank +-205l it has two power heads a heater and a sump with a protein skimmer some filtering and a return pump.

    My question is now that its setup,how long would the salt take to disolve before testing salinity,im using red sea coral pro s.

    oh ya,i also have quite a bit of liverock that is already in the tank.any help would be appreciated thx

    Welcome! I think it takes 24 hours for the salt to disolve completely.

    Hi Raflo, and WELCOME to this wonderful hobby, and to MASA.

    At this stage, I would suggest that the best help you can get would be for you to do a lot of reading, both here on MASA, and on the internet.

    Look at the threads in the Beginners discussions (you're not the first newbie, you know :whistling: ) and in the thread Handy links here in Hennie's Corner. Also, read my article Starting a marine tank

    Then, if you have any specific questions, feel free to ask :)

    Hennie
