I feel so bad for you right now. Having this massive tank dumped on you and trying to save the inhabitants. But once you get everything settle and figured out I am going to be so jealous!

It could be off by more than that, in the same sense it could be accurate. The accuracy of hydrometers isnt my concern, in our hobby (esp sw) our stocklists tend to cost thousands of dollars, so a $30 piece of equipment to add an extra peace of mind is more than worth it

Frozen silversides work wonders for lions. If hes 8-9 inches long, he more than likely is already used to prepared foods.
Try to get safalert test kit, yes its a bit more but its been shown to be more accurate. As for the questions and problems, keep then coming
The sw hobby is something that everyone should experience atleast once in their lives. The fact that you care enough to ask for help and actualy do it right speaks volumes towards how well youre gonna do in the sw world.. Youll be a salty soon enough
