Today I had a trusted LFS
check my salinity with a refractometer. Unfortunately my hydrometer is reading .05 off. What I thought was a SG
of 1.025 is actually 1.030.
I had my heart set on starting with my corals but it looks like it will be another week getting the SG
down to the proper level. Question is how fast can I do this. There is your typical clean up crew and a skunk cleaner which I am told is quite sensitive to fluctuating SG
Whats worse is I have been maintaining this level for the past five months. I must have easily wasted a whole bag of salt mix over that time making water changes with what turned out to be more mix than I needed.
I was thinking bring the SG
down 1 per 24 hours with WCs replaced with fresh RO
in twelve hour shifts.
