We're currently cycling a 10 gal
. and the salinity was staying stable at .026; however, it rose to .028 yesterday, and to .030 today. What would make in increase like that? We've been topping it off with fresh water twice per week. The tank is very full with water, should we remove some of the saltwater to add more fresh water?
Please give any imput. This is our first attempt at saltwater.
Here are today's test results from API test kits
ammonia 1.5 ppm
nitrite between 0 and .25
nitrate 5 ppm
