I just bought from a friend an established 46gallon SW
aquarium with LS
, snails, hermit crabs, (1) RB shrimp, (1) emerald crab and a blue/green chromis about 2 weeks ago. Needless to say, I've been doing a lot of reading lately.
The aquarium came with a thermometer glass type SG
but it's too hard to read while in the tank. So I just bought an Instant Ocean hydrometer and to my surprise my SG
is at 1.026.
I know it's high but is it OK ? Should I drain some water and add in some new DI
water gradually over 24 hours?
