Could it be a misreading? I ran the test once more and sameish result.

My total system volume is 190 g.

Ph: 8.2 (a couple of days ago)
S.G: 1.026
Nitrate: 5? (Checked a week ago)
Phosphate: 0.00 (checked yesterday) reason i added Phosphorus.

Changes i made yesterday
I dosed 5 ml. of Seachems Flourish Phosphorus late evening.

Glued down two frags with reef cement.

Added a few drops of trace elements.

Ps. I noticed that reagent A was low in bottle last week. Can it be air bubbles causing this? I never calibrated my Triton.

Thanks!

Problem ”solved!”

Reagens A for my Triton was bone dry. I did run a calibration after i changed reagens A. Guess what, my Cal seems to be 455 now and Mag is way lower than first presented.
