    Hi guys

    I've never used NSW for a waterchange before - I collected some at high tide in Moz on Saturday - because of work I havnt been able to do the waterchange yet - can I still use the water? The water is in 3 plastic containers in my garage and have gotten cold and been deprived of oxygen - is it still okay or should i filter or chuck it?

    Hi Christiaan! Keep the water in a cool dark place for about two to three weeks until the die off settles at the bottom of the drum. Then use the water for your water change but leave the last 3-4 cm's.
