hey there guys. I read a post on another forum about adding sea water to a fresh water tank with frontosa. he was saying by adding 30% gradually over a few weeks through water changes will raise ph up around 9 and maintain a healthy and parasite free tank. has anyone ever tried this? or is it possible?

Wouldnt it be better to do it with chemicals more natural to the frontosas environment without a whole lot of unnecessary NaCl.Plus with sea water you risk an ammonia spike as all the planktonic larvae die off.

I dont have fronties but many other Tangs and I wouldn't be a fan
