? about salinity

I did a water change and measured my salinity today and it reads 1.024. That is border line. What should I do?I did the water change about 3 days ago.

1.024 is a good number for salinity. I suppose I don't understand your question.

mine stays at about 1.025 or 1.026 34ppt.. for most inverts I believe they like a higher salinity.. more closely to the salinity of natural seawater.. 1.024 to 1.026 or so is just fine..someone correct me if I"m wrong

1.024 is fine. just make sure you top off with freshwater for evaporation, and that future water changes are the same salinity.

if you don't have corals/inverts, you can run at 1.022 to save a little money on salt costs.
