Reef Salinity

Just trying to find the general concensus about where most like to keep their salinity range for a REEF TANK.

So what is yours?

TIA!

I keep my specific gravity at 1.025. I can't remember what salinity that equates to. From the messages I've seen on these boards, most people seem to agree that 1.025 is the way to go. I've had no problems at all. Best of luck to you.

That works out to be 35 I think. I looked but forgot...

Well so far all think 1.025. That is where I am at as well.

Mine is just a little lower then 1.025. Someone once told me that the higher the salinity, the better foam production in your protein skimmer. Makes sense to me..

I keep mine a little lower mine is around 1.022 I have heard keeping the salinity a little on the lower side fights parasites and bacteria off better and i have had great luck keeping corals and fish both. I have no problems with my AquaC Urchin Pro protein skimmer pulling out foam and DOC. JMO
