Do it slowly. Each too his own but many reefers keep their salinity levels at 1.026 which is the salinity level of oceans where the fish and coral come from.

Try for 0.001 drop every few hours, by taking a few cups out and freshwater in.

+1 it will take some time but it will work well and your tank will thank you for it.
