Side effects of high salinity

What r some side effects of high salinity?? .028 to be exact. I have a Duncan that's had some problems opening lately. And of coarse instead of checking the easiest thing... I've been checking everything else and driving myself crazy. I've never let my salinity get that high. Usually at .025 the highest. Going to do a water change now hopefully this problem gets resolved and in all honesty hoping that this was the problem!! Input anyone??

Other than to advise not changing the salinity more than a point or two at a time, I got nothing. that could be why your coral isnt opening....how do you test your salinity? Refractometer or a swing arm? You can get the most accurate reading from a refractrometer for about $30 off ebay. My swing arm was off at least 4-5 pts.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The salinity of Natural Seawater is 1.0264. 1.028 is not really all that high, unless you consider 1.024 too low. I don't think you would see any adverse effects from being at 1.028. What are you using to measure salinity?

I use a swing arm. I just made 10gals and it's reading accurate. I must of made a mistake last time I did my water change. Sometimes it's annoying using a swine arm. I always have to make sure no bubbles are stuck to the arm otherwise it inaccurate

here's a great $30 investment

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

It was one of my best purchases to date.
