Thanks. I hope to put him in my 40B at home once the tank is at least a year old.

I hope to bring home the rest of my corals this week. I need to get some buckets to put my water in so I don't have to cycle the rank again.

The water itself carries minimal nitrifying bacteria. Don't even waste your time transporting it. The only way to essentially avoid a new cycle would be to use established live rock (you would need to keep it fully submerged in tank water in buckets)...

Do you always keep the alkalinity this low?
125.3~17.9=7dkh.

Is that to low? What should it be? I dose the tank every couple of days with Seachems 1&2.

It is the lower edge of recommended level.
7-11 dkh or 125.3-196.9 ppm.
My one tank eats KH @ a 2ppm level per week so I keep it in the upper end when I dose.
If your tanks is steady it may be fine.
I just noticed no one else chimming in or mentioning your results?
