Raising Salt levels #1
When first adding salt to my fresh water aquarium, already with fish in, needing a brackish tank - how quickly should the salt be raised and at what rate.
Any opinions please.

Re: Raising Salt levels #2
Not sure really gradually I would think like the protozin medication, hopefully one of the others will be able to help you soon

Re: Raising Salt levels #3
Goldy is quite right, add the salt quite slowly, although this will be hard to track. Usually when purchasing brackish species fom my LFS they are in fresh water when bought and i spend several hours slowly rasing their salinity until it is equal to the tank, a bit at a time. Perhaps do it during the course of a day? That should be fine
