Okay, last question
I've got the 68 gallon at salinity of 1.018 with a filter running on it. Couple pieces of live rock and 8 cups of substrate from someone running a coral only marine tank added yesterday. When the tank finishes cycling, will I have any problems when I move the other filter, a fluval 305 (I'll run two filters until tank is well established) that is on the 28 gallon with salinity of 1.012? I'm worried the good bacteria in the fluval will not manage the higher salinity. I'm I worry needlessly? I hope that makes sense. I can't take the fluval over yet, because my GSP is in that tank, and needs to have a filter running. Thanks much!!
