Quick but critical question
Hi everyone...have been a member of many forums and found this one also...I love these places...people with similar interests. Still rather new to the hobby, so I'm still finding questions now and then.
I have 3 tanks, 12g, 14g & 75g. I test all water twice a week and today found that I'm having an issue with the 14g. Nitrates, nitrites and ammonia were all zero, PH was 8.2...but salinity is showing 1.030. Two questions....
It needs to be lowered....do I just displace some water with conditioned tap water or do I make some low level salinity water and do a parital change? Also...being only a 14g, I'm not sure how many gallons to take out....
Also, what are the repercussions of high salinity? I know it's not optimal but was curious what happens.
