I agree too, I was just doing it short term unrill i do my refug and sump, I still want to add about 20 lbs of more live rock. The salinity is low in part due to them still being acclimated to full marine, my goal is 1.023 pre reef and 1.025-.026 when i go to my reef. But that is still quite awhile away i want the tank to mature for about 6-8 months before i do that.
Until i get the live rock and power heads i am going to use the emp 400, but believe me it is in no way a permanent thing.
But i do agree with all of the suggestions, the fish i bought where in lower salt levels and i didnt want to shock them by raising it too soon (not sure if that is even a legitimate concern), but i didnt want to risk it.
But any suggestions with what i need, or directions towards stuff i can read before i make the reef plunge would be awsome.
