    im confused about SG as every website says different. mine is 1.024-1.025. some say to maintain between 1.023-25 and some say 1.025-28 and some 1.022-26.

    yeah the LFS keep salinity low as fish aren't as sensitive to low salinity as corals are, saves them $

    hmm... my LFS keeps salinity at 1.019-1.020, i guess thats too low. and low salinity also has more dissolved oxygen.
