    I collect from Umdloti if the water in town is dirty. What do you need to know?

    Hey thanks for the reply

    Would like to know did you test the parameters of the nsw in umdloti? Like po4 no3

    After you collected the water, and got it to your temp, how do you add it to your tank? As in do you just chuck it or use filter floss to strain it

    What salinity is nsw at umdloti

    How long can nsw be stored?

    Do you do any other special things to it?

    Thanks sorry for so many questions. I plan on using both salt and nsw so I can do more water changes

    No nitrate and phosphate barely detectable. SG is 1.026. I just chuck it straight in unless there is sediment, in which case I let it settle for a few days. If it's in a sealed container it'll last for ages.

    Don't worry too much about the temperature difference. As long as it's within 3-4 degrees of your tank and you're not changing more than 30-40% you're good. Sea temp is currently 24-25.
