[QUOTE="salt_for_brains, post: 655591, member: 9023"]Some people actually dump salt straight into their filter sock. I have never been that bold but I have always mixed and used the same day. There are many ways to do the salt mix just as there are many ways to put new corals in the display. I would always recommend dipping the corals b/c it is too easy and too cheap not to add a little insurance, IMO.[/QUOTE]\nWho dumps salt into their filter socks on this site? That is insane statement to make a disagreement. By all means it's your tank and by doing this doesn't affect my tank. I do like hearing that folks do use filter socks, not even a year ago on this site they were considered "nitrate producers."
