In the research, I have done it is not just your parameters you should consider. You need to keep in mind that the lfs
parameters and salinity are going to be different than your QT or DT. It's a good idea to match the SG
as close to theirs as possible. They will adapt better if you do. The SG
they gave you is usually what they keep their tanks.
Do you have corals?If not a lower SG
is fine. Otherwise yes you can bring up the SG
in your QT gradually to match your DT.
