Apex PM2 and Hyposalinity

Setting up a quarantine tank that will be running all the time. Plaining to use hyposalinity to treat ich. Does anyone run a Apex PM2 to monitor salinity during hyposalinity levels. Wonder it was work installing the module.

I have a PM2 and use the sg probe. Easy enough to set up and install, but not sure I would trust it for controlling the sg (it reports in PPT). I would use an ATO system controlled by apex. Maintaining the correct water elvel will controll the SG

I have have the probe and use it, but it is more of a general feeling of where my sg is. I would never make decisions based on ite readings. I don’t think it is that accurate.
