Past couple days Torch has not been fully extended and polyps are not extended and fat(like Danny devito) params tonight are Alk:8.9 calcium:400 nitrate:2-5 phosphate: couldn't detect any. All these using salifert kits. Got new radion g6 lights a week and running the AB+ @ 50%. Any ideas? My guess is lights not high enough?

Agree with the above posters, the Hanna HR Nitrate and the LR Phosphate testers are great.
No guessing colors, just gives you a digital result after a set time. Even if it isn't any more accurate, it's a lot easier and again, no guessing colors. Saying that, I do believe they are more accurate than most of the color chart tests out there.. at least that's been my experience comparing both styles since getting into reefing.
