Hello TRT!
I'm sure this is an academic question, but -

I have a batch of ASW for a WC mixing - it's been mixing for over a day now in a bucket with a powerhead & heater. My question is whether I can let it keep mixing another day or two. I have some macro coming for my display tank and I'll be doing my regular maintenance when the order comes - but it could be Thursday before it arrives. Will the batch still be OK if I keep it circulating? I've never let it mix for more than 24 hours or so...

Thanks! I thought it should be OK (as long as it's not stagnant), but didn't want to sacrifice the integrity of the mix (minerals, electrolytes, etc...).

Loverotties - do you walk to the ocean's edge for your water?

I guess I was worried about the quality diminishing over time...

as I said - it's academic!

Thanks, folks!!

The water that comes is a box at Petco? I tried some for awhile, but the salinity is all over the place from box to box. Do you find that as well?
