I keep my tank at about 10dkh. I use regular instant ocean crystals and dose about twice or three times a week with soda ash to maintain between water changes.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

i keep mine about 9dkh, anywhere between 8-12 is fine. the important thing is to keep it stable. I use ATO with Kalk and mine stays the same
