April Update:

PXL_20240423_222151208.jpg


PXL_20240423_222301186.jpg


Alk ~ 7.6
Cal ~ 420
Mag ~ 1340
Nitrate ~ 6 & Phos ~ 0.05
Pretty sure my Trident Cal/Mag is off/ reading a bit low compared to last month's ICP tests, but haven't done an ICP in a month to verify. Thinking my Cal may be closer to 450 and Mag Closer to 1380/1400

@Reefing102 @StatelineReefer @BranchingHammer

Month 6 update. Got the replacement trident and my stuff was messed up. My Ca was over 600, and then I had a push-click battery powered light fall into my sump overnight. I caught it the next morning while doing my shine doses, but it killed my 2 yellow tangs (Bip and Bop) and my contest Bonsai RTNed following the massive water change.

Somehow my Blue Ghost is just livin' its life through all this month's craziness, not too much activity even with the increased PAR.

Nitrate 0.02 I was just happy to have a reading it’s been 0 forever
Phos 0.04
