I think you got you math wrong. If your at 1.023 and you did a 50% water change with 1.025 then your end result will be 1.024. Its not as complicated as it seems.

That would be a 60 gallon water change. A little excessive and expensive to raise salinity 0.001 point.

It was just an easy example. You can also top off with saltwater until you reach desired salinity and then resume freshwater use.

The above is what I would do as well. Just top off with mixed saltwater for a few days or a week or so and it should rise very gradually which is a good thing.

You can also mix the top off water at a little higher salinity and top off with that and it will go faster but I'd go with the slow and easy way.

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

That is the route I chose. I am just topping off with premixed and doing the raise gradually. It is working slowly and my fish don't show any signs of stress.
