I don't have a reverse osmosis system so I bought Imagitarium Pacific Ocean Water. I'm getting an sg = 3.1 reading using an ORAPXI tester. Anyone know what would cause this? I started with sg = 1.1 and was hoping this would balance it out. BTW, I'm very new at this.
So I set up a 2gal Pico jar about a month ago using cycled water from my 36gal tank and some live rock I picked up locally. It was originally going to house sexy shrimp or a harlequin shrimp but to make a long story short I moved my pistol shrimp/goby pair to it. It's still a little bare but I added a small frag of star polyps and a decent sized frag of pulsing xenia. They were doing fantastic until last week when I was doing my weekly 25% water change in the pico, I wasnt thinking and dropped my salinity too low by diluting my salt water too much. My xenias closed up completely and the following morning they looked pretty freakin miserable. Some of the "fingers" (if you want to call them that) had completely turned black and shriveled up like a dehydrated hotdog and I noticed also that the Xenia had split in 2 (the splitting is normal so I hear). I monitored it this passed week, it has its color back and looks like its regaining its life. It's not fully opened up but it's back to pulsing. You guys tell me your opinion! *Top 2 are before I goofed up, bottom 2 are from today (4/7/20)*:
