1. Please post a current picture of your frag.

2. Have you tested your water recently? (i.e. calcium, alkalinity, magnesium, nitrate, phosphate, nitrite, ammonia, salinity, etc.)
For each test completed please share your results. (If tested multiple times, please share
the date you tested and what your results were.
Yes, I'm a Pharmacist.
No, the blue lights at my house are not growing "pharmaceuticals"...

I have finally gone a few weeks with a params stable and it is showing in the corals in my tank. I will be changing my T5's over the next couple weeks so we will see what that does if anything. My params are as follows. I check far to much to list them all here. Overall this is where they are as their has very little to no fluctuation.

Alk 8.3 - 8.5
Calc 410
Mag 1320
No3 0 - trace
Po4 0 - .02
Temp 77. - 78.
Potassium 400

Is Dennis the only one with a frag still left? That would be total blasphemy! Dennis it is putting out a skirt again so that's a nice change.

Yeah I can't believe I haven't killed it. I'm changing my bulbs so there is still a chance.

2/5/17
No3 - 4
Po4 - 0.05
SG - 1.026
Mg - 1300
Ca - 395

Just for Dennis I tested Nitrate this last weekend.  Wink

It was a bit higher than expected, but not too terrible given the increase in feeding since I got the new wrasses.
