RM, is there a significant risk to not waiting 24 hours after mixing salt to add saltwater to the tank? I fill my homer bucket with RO/DI, mix in Instant Ocean salt for a minute, and siphon it into the tank. I used to fill the bathtub with warm water and leave the homer bucket in it to warm it up before adding it to the tank, but after skipping that step once because I was in a rush and seeing the thermometer fluctuate only one degree before righting itself after a while, I don't bother with that anymore. The only coral I have in my tank at the moment is xenia, but the xenia, my shrimp, crabs, and fish seem unfazed.
