Good morning all,

Just received my ATI ICP test results. I could use your help identify anything that I should be concerned with and address. Still digesting and researching the high/low elements that were pointed out in the results.

Do you have apparent issues in the tank?

Potassium is very low and I would raise it.

Silicon is very high, but unless you have a diatom problem, that is not a concern.
Thanks for the reply Randy. The tank does have a couple of issues to include some weird algae and dino.

Any idea what could cause the raise in Silicon from the 300 in the RO water to 700 in the DT?

I will look into dosing Potassium and possible Nitrate as it's really low at .07mg/l and I believe lead to the dino issue.

Would you consider your tank to be balanced or lopsided when it comes to coral?
