Acclimation Procedures for Saltwater Fish, Corals, Anemones, Clams and Invertebrates : Aquatic Connection Live the first one I saw. Does not seem like a legit source now that you make me look into it. There were a couple more acclimation pages like that as well

Not sure what really makes a place creditable or legit,but heres some places i remember reading about acceptable SG levels
Maintaining Proper Water Quality in the Home Aquarium
How to set up saltwater fish tank
Vivid Aquariums - Aquarium Help and Troubleshooting
Aquarium Keeping at Home

This link about hyposalinity also discusses studies and experimental tanks
hypoOSTtherapyart.htm

I don't feel like any of us are arguing ,just pointing things out and discussing things we have come across over the years ...I know i'm not at the level a lot of you are ( only about 6 yrs and have only ever kept fish and basic corals,,mushrooms ,rics,hammers,frogs)

No arguments just trying to find...say a reliable source to direct people to for information or a source of info for future reference.

I have found many mistakes on the live aquaria website. Calling LPS corals SPS, and suggesting the wrong foods for corals...things like that. I've also seen that websites copy and paste from each other.

A really good idea is to get a couple small fish and coral reference books. I have mine in my car so if I find a fish i must have I check it out first in the book. Couldn't live without it.

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

Great Carey I'm thinking about going to Barnes and Nobel tomorrow and picking up a few books. You know those are reputable sources.

I think it's kind of the same even with books. Can't rely on just one source of information. I use the books as a guide and confirm online. But it is nice to have the book handy if youre not expecting to buy something and see something you just MUST have. lol
