Seriously, I got some Marine Salt today
Now the big question is, how to make my FW into brackish tanks so it doesn't hurt my Mollies, adults and babies? Does one do it very slowly, like 5-10% of marine salt per day per gallon, or slower, or faster? I don't care how long it takes for the fish to get accustomed to the salt. I just want to not have any die because of it. I know they are very sensitive.
Should I mix it up say into 2 gallons at a time, and add it to my 20G tank? Or less, like only adding 1 gallon at a time (5%). Please let me know, and I don't know where to look for this information. Does one also add the aquarium salt to the water as well, in order to keep their electrolytes and other health in good shape? Should I use any medication to help this along? Please advise, as I want to do it correctly.
