Instant ocean formula per cup

Post by ROSIEonFIRE » Fri Jul 17, 2020 12:36 pm

Hi all! I dont know if someone already did this but I got tired of mixing a gallon of instant ocean just to fill up my 2 C pool for my hermit crabs so I figured out the ratio of salt to water in teaspoons. I included my math so yall can check me but I'm fairly certain I did it right.

1/2 C IO : 1 G H2O
24 tsp IO : 768 tsp H2O
_______________________

=====================
1.5 tsp IO : 48 tsp (1C) H2O

Aka 1.5 tsp IO : 1 C H2O

Hopefully this makes everyone's lives easier! I honestly dont know why I never did this before.

Yes, thank you! I'm always worried if I make too much that it will grow bacteria or get icky since I don't use it very fast, but I'm also worried that the ratio would be different for smaller amounts.

Okay, so apparently the /list command makes things not show up at all in Tapatalk?

Our water guide breaks it down as well, at least it always has on the browser version. I've fixed it to show on Tapatalk as well Image
