I'm feeling lazy today and have seen many posts indicating a varying level of salinity. I have a FOWLR tank. Current salinity is at 1.022. Been set up and consistently 1.022 since stocked in August. What is the best salinity to ensure I don't a) stress fish b) kill inverts and c) do ward off ick and other diseases? I do 20% water changes every other week ect and am not new to the hobby but I wouldn't say I'm advanced by any means. My set up is listed in my profile...

"What kind of name is Poon?"
29 gallon hex, canister filter, too much live rock, two powerheads. Tank setup June 2012. Two clowns, fire shrimp, 2 chocolate chip starfish, 3 snails

From my understanding for a fowlr tank that's ok and people even run it as low as 1.017 as lower levels my help keep with ich outbreaks etc. it's reef tanks that need the 1.024-5 rating. Consistency of water parameters is key

On a side note your profile made me laugh, well done sir
