That depends what your salinity is at in all honesty.

Do you have anything to check your salinity?

What size tank? You should be fine though...Lower salinity should not do damage. Some places say you can treat fish with Hyposalinity straight from regular salinity. It is the going up in salinity that can cause problems.

Like Todd said going down in salinity will not bother the fish one bit as I have taken many fish right into hyposalinity treatment. Just be sure when you go up that you do not raise it more than .001-.002 per day. Too fast will actually dehydrate your fish .

Check SG, if it's too low, add salt progressively over days (not over minutes) to avoid stress.
