SG for Inverts

Is 1.024 too high for snails/shrimp/hermits? I think I read somewhere that it should be a little higher and won't harm them. No fish in there for now but might add a goby, will he be ok with that SG?

I agree, it is probably OK, but that is low end for mobile inverts IMO. I'd bump it to 1.025, just to give yourself some breathing room

I'll raise it to 1.025 over a couple days. Would the goby do well in that range or is it too high?

Is there a big difference in .001? The reason I ask is because my 2 hydrometers are off by like .0025. Oh well my refractometer should be here soon!

I think that most keep SG around 1.025, it's a good all around number for just about anything you'd put in your tank.

He should be fine. Test the SG of the water you bring him home in. If there is a difference just spend a little extra time acclimating. Personally I'm slower than most while doing acclimation. I'll generally spend 2 - 3 hours acclimating a new fish.
