In brief: How low and why?

It depends on the level of hemoglobin and the cause of anemia.
Hemoglobin levels to about 7 gm% do not cause symptoms if the level falls slowly. Lower than that may cause weakness and shortness of breath. See this site for more info. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/anemia/ds00321.
