Specific gravity 101 The “How To” Guide to Reef Aquarium Chemistry for Beginners Part 1: The Salt Water Itself by Randy Holmes-Farley - Reefkeeping.com
specific gravity = salinity, but you measure it in specific gravity, not salinity. You need to buy a refractometer. Do not depend on a hydrometer. They are too innacurate. The corals and other tank inhabitants are depending on you to keep it right on the money at all times.Besides that, it makes no sense to keep bringing in corals, fish, inverts, if you are just going to kill them, not to mention the waste of money. That and using RO/DI water are two of the most important aspects of keeping a reef aquarium. Corals-the one on top looks like anthelia, and I am going to say goniopora on the bottom one, if it has a stoney base.

Absolutely agree with the refractometer - a must have. I bought mine on Ebay for $25.00 and I believe the shipping was either free or really cheap.
