Besides salt and yellow powder, melafix works too

Wouldn't 2-4% salt already killed the BBs? The most I add was 5kg to my 6x2.5x2.5 which is 900+ litres of water and that only contains ~0.5% of salt.

1% is to curb nitrite toxicity. A 2-4% won't hurt the BB much but it does slow down the process. But it can be easily overcome once u dilute the tank during WC.

Plus marine salinity is 3.5% so it would be perfectly ok.

Let it settle down a day or two and see. It can suffer from transportation stress. Sometimes a week before it eats. Try Hikari algae wafers

Guys, just a reminder. If you think you have too much coffee at home and want to invite people over, please carry on with whatever you are doing. AVA may like your coffee.
