I am using R/O water that I use A Filter Guys unit to get. I'm not using Salt Water to top off. Had the wife try and take back the hydrometer back to the pet store where I bought it but they played dumb and she just bought a new one. Compaired the 2. The 2nd one with just tap water reads 1.023 ..while the now new one reads 1.008. Think I'm going to bring a bottle of water with me and have a little science experiment at the pet store. Okay some how I'll come up with the cash for the refractometer. Right now our household has become one income.

Right now there are a humbug and a yt damsel. they seem to be okay and my friend at work thinks the clowns may of been victiums of aggression.

That very well could be they are both very agressive damsels and adding clowns (also damsels) is an over load ... But before you buy anything else get a refracometer it is one of the most important purchaces you will ever make . Then remove the 2 damsels if you wish to add any other fish . These guys will not allow it as they have their territory mapped out and will kill to protect it .
