    billrwilson: I try to keep my salinity at 1.023 specific gravity.
    I didn't notice any differences, though, when my it rose to 1.025.

    If you have a fish only setup, there is likely no noticable difference. I do notice a difference with the inverts tho. They are just more vibrant, and open more fully with the higher salinity. IMHO:)
