I am turning my 29 gal freshwater to brackish. my only problem is that I know that you should not change it more then 1.001 or 1.002 per week. if I am doing a 5 gallon water change what should the reading be in the new 5 gallons to raise the 29 gallon tank. Right now it reads 1.000

I'd just do the 5 gallon waterchanges once a week, and add back water that is at the SG you eventually want to have. I'm guessing you want 1.005? This will move the SG up slowly over the course of a few weeks.

oh, just for a side note, make sure that you let the water age for a day before adding it to the tank I don't know the reasoning behind this (I don't keep saltwater tanks......for now ;D), but i'm positive that you shouldn't add it right away.
