I had a quick question that maybe somehow could help me out with.

I purchased the Red Sea Coral Pro Salt and im having difficulty understanding how much salt to pour for a 20 gallon tank. Was wondering if anyone here had used the product and could help me out with it?

I haven't use that product but there is normally a dose rate on the packet.

According to Dr Googly, you a
dd 1.4 lbs of the salt to 5 gallons of water. However, I would only add enough salt for 15 gallons, aerate and wait 24 hours. Then use a
hydrometer to measure the salt level in the water. If the salinity is too low, add a bit more salt and wait another 24 hours. Do this until you get the correct salinity.

The water also has to be made up at least 24 hours before using it so all the salts can dissolve into the water.
