I keep my salinity at about 1.0255, leaves me a little wiggle room either way if necessary. keep in mind that corals and fish come from the same ocean water salinity of 1.026 so keeping it like they are used to would seem the best thing to do.

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

Yes but my marine supplier keep their salinity at 1.022 and fish cAn not handle a salinity change more than 0.002 per day. So it isn't good to take them from at tank with a salinity of 1.022 and place them in a tank with a salinity of 1.025 all at once even with proper acclimation.

I guess lucky for me my LFS uses actual seawater then.

On the occasions that I've added fish not from that store i have never once had an acclimation issue due to salinity. I do drip for over an hour on fish and 2 hours on inverts so hopefully that helps. And shrimp they say are the most susceptible to changes in ph and salinity and I've added a dozen over the last year. So not sure how true that all is.

I've kept both and they are easy to keep. Just acclimate well and you should be fine. They need good water though, all shrimp are sensitive.
