Ato? Aint one of those things that tops up when your water evaporates? So what would you mean by i need to add phos mg and ca?Welcome! Couple of thoughts to share. First, everything takes time in this hobby — including getting your tank to the point that it will support corals. Second, as your tank matures what you test (and how often) may change.
At seven weeks, I’d be focusing on salinity (do you have an ATO?), nitrates, and Alkalinity. As @HuduVudu said get used to Alk testing. You’ll likely add phosphates, Mg and Ca. In terms of test kits, I use Hanna checkers for salinity, Alk and phosphorous. I’m using NYOS for nitrates, and Salifert for Ca and Mg.
Yeah thats what i have been doing so far i have a ato on order should be here Tuesday. So what type of testing kits would you advise for this?ATO. Yes. Auto top off. But I just looked at your tank, and I’m guessing you could just add RODI water as your water level evaporates.
Sorry. You’ll add testing for phosphates, magnesium, and calcium as your tank matures and you add corals.
