Mixing salty 8.5 ?

Recommended Posts

The instructions suggest using co2 to help dissolve the powder, but I don't have co2. Should I use hot wAter? If it takes so long to dissolve should I let it sit 24hr before testing gh? How many scoops for 5gal bucket? It's for s new tank, should I just mix in the tank?

I was using boiling water and then dumped some in that and stirred.  There was still some that wasn't dissolved though but just check your GH and when it reaches what the label says (maybe 7?) then you are good to go.
