Preparing marine water

Hello there - can I just ask something about preparing marine water?

I have (or will have this coming friday - it is being transported for me) an up & running 75 UK gallon (320 litre) tank, with some fish & live rock.
I figured a 35 litre water change each week would suffice (easier than 70 every fortnight!).

The process is:

After making the ro water in the plastic water carrier, I gather I get it to temperature, add some bubbles (ie the end of an airline!). When the water is up to temp I add the instant ocean.

Can I do this in the same water carrier & add it directly to the tank? Hopefully I can as it will save a second tank being setup ( or a third if you count the possible hospital tank!).

Any help gratefully recd.....!!!!

Yep you can mix in the same container. You don't need to wait for the temp to come up to mix in the salt. It will come up as you mix in the salt. You'll want something a lot more powerful than an airline to mix with, buy a small powerhead like a Maxi-Jet 1200. I use a Tunze 6060 to mix 40 US gallons.
