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

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.
