Big als ( LFS)

Just out of curiosity I thought of testing the salinity if my LFS water the fish are in .
1.017
Is that even safe ?
My tank is at 1.025

Agreed. Very common for shops to run hypo to discourage disease. A refractometer is worth the investment IMO.

One more reason to acclimate slowly. My guess is that was from a fish only tank. My LFS runs 2 systems one for fish with copper and the other for all the reef and invert tanks.
