Salt has over 14,000 uses and I am sure there are plenty more for jobs where someone has simply failed to throw salt on it. With so much familiarity in the uses of sodium chloride we are here to make sure that you are going to make the right decision with one of them. This decision is of course pertaining to the options of saltwater when it comes to your Jellyfish.
The saltwater in your aquarium can come from three places and we are going to tell you about those options and some of the advantages and disadvantages of them.
1. Readymade Saltwater
The first and best choice for your Jellyfish is to buy readymade saltwater directly from us. It is easy, immediately usable, and you can store it for up to a month. However what makes it far superior to the other options is the fact that it is the saltwater we breed your Jellyfish in.
The readymade water contains all the trace elements, organisms, and salt levels to keep your Jellyfish as healthy as possible. You can also work with us in sending back the used water during a change in our DPD canisters so we can re-use them or dispose of them safely to help protect our environment.

2. Mix your own saltwater
The second option you can use as a Jellyfish owner is to mix your own seawater. This option, if you follow our step by step procedure can be an economical and easy way to create a habitat for your Jellyfish. When mixing the salt, water, and bacteria you may find some difficulty in adjusting for the correct levels of each, but with the purchase of water test kits you should be able to master the technique. Another thing to note when using this method is it will take one full day for the salt to dissolve in your mix and for the new water to adapt in temperature to the water already in the aquarium so make sure to allow for this time adjustment. If you like to be in total control of all the variables of your tank, mixing your own saltwater may be the method for you.
3. Visit your local petstore
The last option is to hop in your car and head down to your local pet store and simply purchase their saltwater. Now this option is fantastic if the store is reliable and consistent in the element levels of their saltwater. This option is cost effective and easy, we only caution that you make sure that they have solid knowledge of their water values so as not to harm your Jellyfish.
Overall, all the methods have their advantages and disadvantages and it is up to you as the proud owner of Jellyfish to find the approach that works best for you. If you do not want the hassle of measuring, waiting, and testing the readymade saltwater or a premix from your pet store will be your best option. If you like taking your time and enjoy playing chemist, mixing your own may be the way to go. In choosing saltwater there are no right or wrong methods, only the one that makes the most sense to you.
