PWC are good but you`ll need to add lower salinity SW or take a few gallons of SW out and replace with FW. As MK said do it slowly. By the way what is the salinity reading

It is easier on the fish, to drop it than to higher it. As stated about, just remove some SW and add some FW.

What is the number? I'm not too sure about what the green reading is.
