Hi Everybody,

My salinity in the tank is 1.023 at the moment, and I would like to increase it to 1.024. How do I go about increasing the salinity gently, without giving a 'salinity shock' to the livestock in my tank?

Thanx! :) T

I don't blame him :tt2:

Mekaeel and LikesFish have answered your question, that's pretty much the best ways to do it.

What are you measuring your salinity with?
