So my Tridents reagent only lasted about 5 weeks and I still had a half bottle of Reagent A left. I have the Trident set to do the minimum amount of tests per day. I looked close at the testing graphs and it appears the Trident is double testing Calcium and Magnesium for the 12am test. The graph shows a test at 12:14am and then again at 12:34am. It appears that it’s doing this every night. Is there anything that I can do about this? Or is this a normal thing? This was only the second batch of reagents that I’ve ran through the Trident. I was under the assumption that at the minimum amount of tests that the reagents are supposed to last 2 months....? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Do you care whether or not you have wave action in your reef tank?
