Hi all, I was gonna go get some clown fish today and maybe a small clean up crew, my parameters are all in check,
Ammo 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 5
Ph 8.2
My problem is with sg, it's currently at 1.021 will I be able to get the fish then slowly raise it back to 1.025?

That should be good to add livestock, you can gradually increase it further when doing water changes.

That's reassuring, I've just added two clowns I floated them in the bag for 15mins then drip acclimated them for an hour, hope they'll be ok. I'll add pics shortly

Thank you yeah the main reason I done a reef was for my boy, he loves watching the tank and plus it helps put him to sleep hahaha.
I was gonna get a black and white clown but they didn't have any at Lfs yesterday so opted for those two instead.
