Hi sammy. Sorry no one got back to your question earlier. I just got back from a vacation and will take a quick stab at the salt. I keep BB Gobies in a brackish tank with 2 tbs of marine salt per gallon of water. I do not use Aquarium salt as marine salt supplies a complete range of trace elemnts that aquarium salt can not. Also Do not add salt to your top-up water. when water evaporates from your tank it leaves the salt behind so only add more salt when you do water changes. It makes everything easier if you measure the ammount of water you swap out in gallons so you can calculate how much salt to mix for the new water going in.
