ive just started my own saltwater tank myself, and my alkalinity is at a 5, well im tryin to get to a 3.5 or 4. from whut ive been told by alot of local pet stores, and Vets Pets, one of the best stores for saltwater, that the best way is to do a water change. anywhere from 10to 25% depending on the size of the tank.
you cant lower the general harndess of a saltwater aquarium. Why would you even want to?
Salt water:swim in it make an salt water aquariumFresh watter:drink it put in in an aquarium
You can raise a sea urchin in a salt-water aquarium. There are no fresh water sea urchins so you would need a salt-water aquarium to properly care for the urchin.
Soda ash raises both alkalinity and pH in fresh water; I would assume the same in salt.
For example sodium carbonate is an alkaline salt.
for a aquarium what I do and im kinda new is take out a little water and add fresh water. Has to be fresh water from store that has reverse osmosis if I spelled it right. Make sure when you remove water to check the salt level.
Aquarium salt is manufactured for different reasons than making your aquarium the perfect environment for salt water fishes. You may use it in an emergency, but long term is harmful to your fish. Marine salts contain the necessary salts and minerals that fish need are the best salt to use.
Underwater sea animals live in salt water
not really you really need sea salt
No, when the proportion of the acidity and alkalinity of water are equal this makes the water neutral.
As many as you can fit, considering they are salt water fish
You would pour an acid into the water to create a salt which makes the water more neutral.
No you don't.
they need dechlorinated fresh water, and dechlorinated salt water made with aquarium salt.
Salinity refers to the dissolved salt content of a body of water. The SI unit that is used to measure the amount of salt water in an aquarium is the absolute salinity (g/kg).
Salt is such as table salt NaCl is neutral. It is neither basic or acidic.
You should ask this question in the 'salt water' section.
Because sodium chloride is salt! Obviously normal water has lower salt levels than salt water.
Salt doesn't lower the temperature of water. Rather, salt water has a lower freezing point than normal water, which can cause it to be colder while remaining in a liquid state.
To open an in ground salt water pool after the winter, you should first test the water. It will have to be adjusted to bring the alkalinity and PH to where it should be, as well as the chlorine, and stabilizer. Adjust the alkalinity first, and then the PH. Next take care of the chlorine, and stabilizer. Finally, add your salt to the pool.
It's suposed to be about 8.0-8.3
Yes the presence of salt in water will lower the temperature at which the water will freeze.
Regular salt may contain anticaking agents nuisible for fish.
