Awesome guys thank you, and mark its good to see your still going at it and rusty im sorry i had plans :( cant wait to start fraggin boys ;)

and what more would you like to know about the tank? sorry about the sluggish response dont get to the computer much but i will try a little harder for you kind folks :)
p.s. everything is doing so good, woke up with thousands of tigger pods and a bunch of amphipods that came from no where so i am a very happy camper, just need lights from nick and im set and maybe a bigger skimmer just for my own pleasure. . .

I was out for a while too, getting married and traveling the world.Smile
I've never heard of Alk registering as a bluish-greenish color. That sounds like a pH test. Alk tests have you watch for the color change. If you are planning to grow coral, testing for Alk and Ca are a must. Coral don't show problems with those 2 parameters until it's already past time to do something about it. Pinch

The Red Sea Alk test goes Bluish Green.  Blue being the high range and Yellow being low range.
