Salinity

My salinity is about .023 and I want to raise it to .025 for corals correct? How can I do this safely with livestock in the tank?

You can add saltwater for your top offs for one. Or just do a water change and tweak it from there. I'd raise it to .024 max in a day. Do u use a refractometer? easier to tweak with that i find...

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

Wish I had one but it's out of my budget right now :/. I'll just do the salt water top off. Nice and slow, I just did a PWC. Thanks Carey
