Hello,

I placed an order last night which includes fish, snails, hermit crabs and corals. I would like to set the salinity in my QTs to match yours perfectly. Can you please provide me with this information?

When I got my order fish were at 1.019 and snails/shrimp was at 1.025 area.

You can drip acclimate over a few hours.

Thanks for the question. The fish system usually runs at 1.019-1.020 and the coral and invert system runs at 1.025. Both use NSW with the fish system being dilluted slightly with RO water.

Hope that helps.

Thank you the responses! I will adjust the SG in my QTs accordingly, and drip acclimate as per the instructions on the website.
