Thanks Rich! Odd thing is the Red Sea test nearly matched my ICP while Trident was off by a mile. I'm not super concerned about Trident numbers as long as they are consistent.
@GoVols U hear this? Guess theyre hit or miss..

Things seem to be in order despite a hair algae bloom which was my fault. I harvested way too much chaeto out of the refugium and hair algae took it's place. I'm thinking about running a blackout on the display for a few days to see if I can kick the refugium back into gear.
FM ICP test was delivered yesterday. Curious how long it will take to get results. It's pretty impressive that I got my N-DOC results from Germany faster than FM ICP in Florida.

lol
No, but writing it down... ;Writing

Have heard that any ICP test is not as accurate on micro trace elements as we thought they would be.

@Dave Cureton

Thanks for sharing the above with Triton testing. Figured they would be the best of them all.

Super nice build, and love the shot of your family on post #1

Got my FM ICP test results back. Most reading are in line with Triton. The one that is fairly far off is sulfur. Triton at 1071 mg/l and FM at 1273 mg/l. I'm curious if the extra time in shipping could have influenced the results. FM ICP samples were shipped 06/03 and results were received 06/16. Triton ICP and N-DOC samples were shipped 06/03 and received 06/06 (ICP) and 06/11 (N-DOC).

@Scurvy what has been your experience with sulfur in your travels and research?
