Hello Mrs. Tom.

:rofl

Yesterday was a long weekend for me, so the 2nd round begins today.

Just fed them a bit of gel food, so I will wait a bit until they finish.

For Round 2, I should put salt in again? :idont

Just asking, because that is what it says in that incredibly detailed chart on page one.

Okay, Round 2 has begun.

Salt (42.3 teaspoons!!!) and 3 capfuls of Prazi added.

I feel so accomplished. :P

Both seem to be acting normally, foraging for food in the sand.

Minor clamping again of the hind fins occasionally, but then they go back to normal.

Yes, salt. :)

How are they doing? Any mopiness?

So, mildly mopey? :idont

The new stand is holding up well.

I still can't believe we built it so quickly.

I finished my salt though on this last round.

Was a bit pricey.

Know of a cheap alternative/brand to sea salt?

OH! Before I forget . . . if you do pick up canning and pickling salt, it is a much finer salt. So when dosing, you use 3/4 tsp per gallon instead of 1 tsp per gallon. Let me know if you need help with the dosing. :D

Thank you.

To contact you, same as usual: Chant your name three times, right?

Hello.

I have purchased two bags of this fine sea salt (couldn't find pickling salt).

Ingredients say Salt ...I was expecting for it to say "duh" in parentheses.

Is it safe for my Round 3?

Am I insane?

Did someone mention that if it's fine, I reduce the dosage of salt to 75% of what I would normally?

I think those may be two different questions :P
