Salt mixing

I see some people keep salt mixed up all the time and do not just make it before they do a water change. This brings up a question for me.

Can you age your new salt mix too long before using it?

Thank you,

Boy that takes you a long time to pour that bucket in; 3.2 seconds. I do it in 2.9 seconds. :p

I still just use tap water and mix the salt with water as I need to pour it in the tank. So much overkill in this hobby.


Not a problem, I take it as another view in a hobby were there are many ways of doing it.

I just disagree. I've been keeping aquatic live for over 40 years now. I do it for a living. Some of my customers tanks have been running for years. Once initial algea from die off on live rock durring cycling; rare do I see algae problems. Never seen a death due to water change caused by salt being mixed then poured in to tank.
