View Full Version : Salinity of Live Aquaria and Divers Den?

07/10/2017, 06:43 PM
Hey Reefers,

I have not ordered anything from Live Aquaria or Divers Den before, do they still arrive in 1.018 and 1.025 respectively? That was the general consensus but I was only able to find threads from 2014. I know they were acquired by petco and some time has passed obviously so I am hoping people have ordered from them regularly in 2017. I would like to match my QT tanks salinity so that I can just temp acclimate. Also, what about snails?

Pretty much, yes. Last LA for me was 1.017, but DD is always 1.025.

Just received an order from DD last week and it was 1.025.

+1, DD has always been 1.025 for me as well. I think the last time I ordered from regular LA (Almost a year ago) it read 1.019.

For fish it hardly matters. As long as the salinity is not below 1.016 you can bring fish directly to nominal ocean salinity. But it's a good idea to run a QT at a lower salinity anyway.

Inverts and corals are a different story.
