So I got my salt on Tuesday for my 10g nano aquarium and i added half the salt into the tank then stirred then the other half and stirred and most of it is dissolved except for these last few bits and its driving me crazy. I got Instant Ocean sea salt.
QUESTIONS
Will the undissolved salt dissolve on its own without additional stirring?

Will the undissolved salt hurt any aquatic life i put in there due to salinity slowly rising as the salt dissolves more?

Has anyone else had this problem?

Definitely wait until it dissolves all the way. What type of tool are you using to measure salinity?

Just FYI, if you leave undissolved salt in your tank it can get on your animals and will actually cause a burn, especially on inverts like snails and corals.
 

Do you have a iPad or similar type screen mounted somewhere near your tank for control or display?
