    Looks like no ammonia no nitrite and a touch of nitrate.

    If you do add anything, it will likely die. Did you ever say what kind of lights you have? Your two small led strips aren’t enough to keep any coral. I would stick to fish for a while and get everything dialed in a consistent for a few weeks before throwing more good money after bad.

    I am trying to get better lights right now .. I was looking at Kessil but they are so expensive. Any ideas for $100 or under LEDs?

    I just bought a Finnex 24/7 marine. So far I’ve been happy.
