I would try the turkey baster and just to add hydrometers are ok but refractometers are much much more accurate. You may want to invest in one.

Agreed. On my wish list.

I'll try the turkey baster and see if that helps.

Thanks for all your help and advice everyone.

Ammonia was at .01

I guess this is my initial setup. I have topped it off a few times, but I didnt think the water change was necessary yet. Should I?

^^^ I'd ask the same. Ammonia and nitrites? No corals yet right?

All of my tests came back spot on perfect. There are no corals yet. It is just a tank of saltwater, sand, base rock, snails, and hermits.

Ok well that's good news as far the stock goes. We need to figure this out. I'd say do some water changes and see how that turns out.

Blast the rocks of debris with say a turkey baster.
