For about 9 months I have done PWC
's and always made sure my water going into the tank was at 1.023 - 1.025, what i failed to do that i was told last night was check my salinity at the tank as water evaporates but salt stays in the water .... i didnt know that so i have always been topping off with saltwater. So in the last 4 weeks I have noticed my inverts start dieing off and crabs ... couple fish ( blue/green chromis ) die. I have always practiced doing my testing of Nitrates, Nitrites, Ammonia and Ph :
Ph: 7.4 buffered to 8.2 with Seachem Marine buffer
Even suspected a phosphate issue when i had some algea bloom action and that turned out 0 as well.
So anyway my salinity ended up climbing to 1.035
I am hoping that this will come down with straight RO
Any helpful hints other then check the tank water when doing my checks, I have ordered a full time Salinity meter that stays in the tank (PinPoint salinity meter)?
I did an immediate PWC
that got it down to 1.030 how long should i wait to bring it down further ?
