  1. so i have been increasing my tank to 0.3% salt, at a rate of 1 tsp per gallon, but i have been reading lately that the size of the salt granule has a lot of effect on the actual volume required to raise your salinity... i realized that i am using a more rock salt(larger crystals)... i know you can weight it for greater accuracy, but unfortunately i haven't been doing that.... i Do however have a hydrometer(plastic type) that measures both salinity PPT and specific gravity... unfortunately i haven't been able to find any information about what a .3% salt content should read in "Salinity PPT" or Specific Gravity... does anyone have these numbers readily available??? thanks!! .gabe
  2. So here's a question for whoever knows the answer....since my tank is cycling, the nitrites are super high right now. I've been doing lots of water changes. I got to reading about how salt brings down the nitrites and might also be good just for the general well being of my fishies...so I am considering adding a low amount to my 55 gallon tank. My only concern is that we have two black mystery snails that my husband and kids love. Anyone know if they can tolerate a little salt or will it kill them? Do ya'll think it's a good idea to add salt while it's cycling to help out? I'm so new and don't wanna do anything stupid.
