Yeah but they get me on the electric $250+ a month. It's these fish tanks adding $100+ a month probably. Just started using a mh fixture so I only expect it to go up further. At least til I start downsizing on tanks. lol

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

My water is around $25 but that doesn't include sewer because we are on a septic. It is the electric bill that kills me. $450-500 in mid summer and mid winter. I hate all elect. houses. (should an electrical contractor really be saying such things?)

Lowering the salinity can kill the bacteria living on the live rock. They are used to living in marine conditions. You could take out all the live rock and put it in a container, and then lower the salinity, keeping a close eye on your parameters.

Thank you soo much for that info! Only problem is im defense not comfortable putting my fish in ny 55 and dropping the sg to 1.008... the buffering capacity at that pout is almost nonexistant and the author even says to has ample jakob soda ready to level out the ph....not to mention its gonna take 12 weeks to fully and completely treat it....irk what to do at this point I feel like im screws either way... do I leave them and hope the kordons works or do I risk transfering them to a 55 bare bottom hypo tank??

I think im gonna use a 10g, about 15 lbs of or out of the display tank, and one of my old marineland powerheads and do a hypo treatment....I hate to say this but id rather lose one fish eager then risk losing all of them....this sucks
