Hyposalinity

Reading a post found here:


I didn't know that hyposalinity would kill my live rock and sand. It almost feels like im starting over at the very beginning. Is there anything I can do once I'm finished with the treatment to "jumpstart" my tank?

If yiuve got yiur fish in another rank, slowly move them over one at a time. Couple weeks apart, giving to bacteria time to bounce back.

Ok. Just watch the water parameters, and bring the SG up slowly and you should be fine.

I read the hyposalinity treatment should last 4-6 weeks. Is that recommended? :D
