well we have run out of salt so are heading to the store since we need to do a water change with our new ammonia level. What should our salt level be in parts per thousand, the measurement on the hydrometer?

and by tub, did you mean a bath tub? or a plastic tub? a bucket? and wouldn't a quarantine tank need a filter?

Rubbermaid tub is fine. And yes, it needs filtration. A sponge filter will suffice.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I never really measured like that. Had to keep tabs on the salt dose manually.
