Once i skipped calibrating and had a 1.031 salinity for a few days in my new tank im cycling right now (a second 3 gal pico)
Is it a Dead sea native pico reef? ;Playful
Just kidding, If I were you I´d buy this gravity auto top-off for the pico. I have it in both my picos to eliminate salinity swings (deadly in picos). It keeps the salinity constant drop by drop.
Doing the best I can :) thanks for ALL the support !
Glad to see your tank issues are getting solved. Continue updating. Your zoas are somehow starting to open which is a good sign.
Remember salinity and temperature MUST be perfect, and from there on the rest of the parameters.

Haven’t seen a update for a few days. .

funny ...
My wife lives her “waving hands “
One looked like it was melting this morning. .
I don’t know if it was stung by something else in the tank ( frogspawn close ) or just Xenia nature ....,

Yea I didn't ask for anyone's opinion of what I should or shouldn't do though. I have 2 threads on here showing my reefs and not only have I made that clear that I don't want random advice, but I have also made it clear I am intentionally taking a hands-on approach and doing everything analog and manually on purpose. I also pointed out here and on my thread, I am doing many of the "don'ts" youre "not supposed" to do and you know what, nothing has died in my tank yet except one bad shrimp from the LFS that I also mentioned doesn't keep it's prams correct. There are plenty of people asking for advice on here, reply to them.
I believe the ops isn’t a pico
.
But a 75 gal ..

What does that have anything to do with what was stated to me by someone who isnt the op? the op asked questions bc of the xenia species and its reaction to being added into their new tank. My reply you quoted was to someone suggesting equipment for my tank that I never asked a question for and literally had nothing to do with the op's questions nor the thread as a whole.
Wow .......

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I think I'll make a mental note of that, and when they have issues, I'll not answer.

Not the attitude to have on these boards either.

It was just a joke and some well intentioned advice taking into account you stated you had "1.031 salinity".
Let´s keep the forum friendly. Anyone can have a bad day ;)

Wow @Lmcg8020 sorry your post got so highjacked and outta control. I hope somewhere in this Jedi sword battle you got the information you were looking for.
Not cool to those acting like children on here, you should be ashamed of youselves.
R2R is a welcoming community, and this is showing a negative side I didn't sign up to see.

Okay I appreciate all the input really, I wanted to do this to have a great hobby and beautiful tank but feel I was poorly prepared. (Ill advised) Thank you
dont get discouraged, lfs need to sell their products... don't do much until you practice testing your water the same way every time and do that for a few weeks then you will truly see what the water is doing. keep having fun with it, it is a great hobby!

I never did see if you have an auto top off system? How are you dealing with daily evaporation because this is important for your future of stability
I haven’t been able to do enough research on them. What would you recommend?

Looks like a Bristle worm.
I would start a new thread for this in the hitchhiker id forum, You will get more input.
