Received my Hanna salinity tester and although the unit itself is fine, BRS shipped it in a padded envelope and the case is broken, the top is cracked almost completely across at the hinge. I contacted Hanna and we'll see if they respond to it.
This is a POSITIVE shout out to @Hanna Instruments and their AWESOME customer service. As stated above, my Salinity tester came with a cracked case. Not only did they send me a new case right away, it included 4 new 35ppt calibration fluid packets.

Thank you for your Excellent CS ! !

These 2 were sulking bad lately and had moved themselves apart from each other. I moved them back together last night and today, all puffy again.... go figure

Got home from mom in laws and did parameters

PO4 - .080 (Just changed GFO yesterday so this was expected)
Ca - 430
Mg - 1460
dkH - 9.3
Salinity - 1.025
pH - 8.2
NO3 - ~50(Still can't figure this out)

Going to have to start something else to help lower Nitrates. I've been skimming wet, have the sulfur reactor running with low NO3 coming out, did a 25% water change and turned up time on chaeto reactor. Thinking about starting to carbon dose using the same nopox recipe @mta_morrow is using. Mike I'll pm you about how you started dosing it.

@najer finally got a pic of my Foxface nuzzling one of my trachys in full camo ;)

Oooh that would be beautiful! Go up to them, and say “Now, kiss!” Play some romantic music. Set the mood.
Don't forget to dim the lights!!! @Fudsey do your lights have a "Trachy baby making" preset?
