I did ask them today and they said the pre mix they sell is around the 34-35 mark.  Will have to invest in some better kit though to avoid these issues.

I wouldn't trust the hydrometer, they're not very accurate.  Check with your LFS, but then go invest in a refractometer, which is what most people use for measuring salinity.

It looks like pretty large grain substrate.  Gobies are really best suited to fine substrates, like fine sand.  It could be that?

Pleased it's helped a few people.  I'm still Ich free after several years of being diligent with putting all fish, corals and inverts through QT.

So it bugged me all day so I managed to get hold of another test kit for my nitrate levels.

The picture attached is not very clear but when I look top down and compare to the chart is is easily in the 25PPM .

All I need to do now is lower my salinity slightly as it is currently at 36PPT.

Am I right in thinking I should be at around  30PPT?

Would you say I'm safe to start doing soMR small water changes to lower nitrates and salinity or should I leave the tank a little longer?

Thanks again.

It doesn't matter a great deal.

New questions and topics should be raised in their appropriate sections but given this was started in your intro post, it may as well continue.  :glad:

Great thanks. Will update over the weekend.  Is it best to use this post or move away from the introduction section?
