Just speaking out loud, I’ve never understood that train of thought that you have to use the water in ex amount of hours. If it’s kept out of direct light and circulated then it’s no different to having it in your tank. Maybe I’m missing something

RO yes, as long as you keep it in a good container,  out of the light

Saltwater depends on the salt, some say to use them in a certain time period, e.g. aquaforest Probiotic which is supposed to be used in 24 hours, but in general it should be fine

Agree. Both good tanks. I don't know the spread on the kessils.  I'd say, check that and you should be fine. They're good lights, so you won't be lacking power or spectrum.

Wow, @Mayo I didn't even sell it to a Steve, so it's many hands old!

It's in remarkable condition given tanks (mainly the stands) struggle with being moved over and over.

I wish I hadn't sold it now given how it's appreciated in value!  :O

I keep mine in a Darrel for a week or so, when I mix salt in I keep a pump on in there to keep the water moving.

Does Darrel mind?

So if I made up a load or ro water I can keep it stored untill I need it. Is thay right.
And if I mix salt water I an also keep that stored but just add a power head to keep it moving.
