Make sure the extra brackish water you use it at least a few days old so all the salt is fully dissolved.I have 4 tanks in my house, so I am always prepared to dose/water change/and have every test kit known to man haha!
But, I actually now have the patience and a little knowledge to wait at least a little bit now. Last night I transferred a good amount of gravel, a LOT of shrimp poop and biofilm, some loose rocks, and some macro algae. I also added 20% of their water into the new tank and added fresh brackish water to it. It’s currently in the house but in front of the window, with a super strong grow lamp on it.
I’d rather wait a few days anyway, since they get so stressed out when I mess with their environments.
