Personally I would say you are fine with that for the time being (presuming you are not keeping them in a 5g tank

The African lakes (Malawi, Tanganyika etc) are freshwater. Tanganyika is recorded as the World's longest freshwater lake. They are high in mineral content, hence the hardness values required for setups containing fish from these locations, but in terms of salinity the SG is basically 1.000 (that of pure/freshwater).
Having reread the thread, now I am awake .... I'm easily confused by the terms of freshwater and salinity half asleep
. What we are talking about is something along the lines of Seachem's Cichlid Lake Salt to raise the hardness (the 'saltiness' that Agent is referring to) rather than Tropic Marin to adjust the salinity
( the SG that Tolak is referring to). Think I have got that right now
Surprisingly very few in the UK seem to use Lake Salts if they need to adjust their hardness but tend to use the likes of Epsom Salts instead.
Sorry for the confusion
