    Nsw !

    I've been reading about using natural sea water and as I live close to the Bay of Fundy , I was wondering if any other reefers in the area are supplying their reef with NSW. If you do could you please share preparation process before you put it in your tank or do you just add it right to it !

    Shoreline in St Martins is one of the cleanest around, I've heard that people cure it different ways . So I'm just looking for ideas!

    momrules gets here water from the bay

    I use NSW. I have a rubber maid container. with a mini power head that sits by by tank. I just let the powerhead runing and wait for it to warm.

    If the salinity is down I will leave it uncovered to allow for some evaporation

    At Dal they pump water in from the Arm, run it through sand and carbon and use it to breed marine fish and propagate corals. The filtration is necessary because the Arm is right around the corner from the infamous Halifax Harbour. If you get it from a clean source you don't have to filter it.

    I could get NSW from alot of shorelines around me but I like going out to St. Martins just for the fact stated above . the other location are to close to the cities harbour which probably would kill just about any life form.
