If I am not mistaken Mr. Fenner recanted his thoughts on lower sg
and revised the statement in his newer edition. The reason lfs
' use a lower sg
is to save on salt (less money spent) and, in theory, reduce parasite %'s; however, unless they are using a hyposaline concentration then the parasite (Cryptocaryon/ich) can still live and reproduce. As far as the Alkalinity reading, am I wrong is assuming 4.0 is in meq/l? If so then that is fine since I do not see 4dKH as possible without having a bad batch of salt.
