High Salinty!

I just did a 10% wc and made the new batch of sw to be around 1.025. I added the water to the display and being dumb enough didn't check the display salinity before. I guess I didn't top off enough rodi water unto the display during evaporation and after adding the new water the display is at 1.028. Will this be okay for my corals and fish or will this hurt them?

How long did you keep the salinity at that level?

I wouldnt worry too much jake thats not excessively high. Ocean reefs run around 1.0264, some places higher some lower. Just slowly bring it back down.
