I have the brightwell aquatics koralMD dip and I just realized that you need 1/2 gallon of saltwater for the dip and you’re supposed to add 4 capfuls. I don’t have this much saltwater on hand and won’t until Thursday. Could I do 2 capfuls in 1/4 gallon or 1 capful in 1/8 gallon or would I have to do the 4 capfuls in a 1/2 gallon

I’m stupid. Forgot to mention I was planning to get coral Wednesday and that’s why I can’t do dip because I’ll have the water Thursday and not Wednesday. May wait until thursday

One capful is either 5 or 10 ml depend on on the cap size
I use that number to calculate how much needed for each ounce and then calculate how much I need for the amount of salt water I need to use for the coral I’m dipping.
I mix as little as 2 cups or as much as a gallon…
Grab some pipettes and you can make quick work of measuring the right amount.

I always have a fresh bucker of saltwater on hand when I get new livestock, just in case. I don’t drip acclimate coral though, but it’s nice to have the saltwater if I need it. ‍
I usually do too usually for fish but I have never added corals before so I never thought of it.

Do you care whether or not you have wave action in your reef tank?
