Well after looking when I got home the heater stays on all the time. Temp is at 80.2. I calibrated the heater again when I got home it was off quite a bit. There is a 5 degree difference between the ambient room and the tank, of course my ceiling fan is going. Amazon currently has 100 watt Aqueon Pro heaters for $25 which has free shipping. Will be upgrading. Will use the Eheim Jager for warming saltwater for water changes. Thanks to all for the advice.

Ph: 7.8 (is this low?)
Alk: 8
Ammonia: 0 (dosed back up to 4ppm)
Nitrite: 10

Dose the Ph seem a little to low to anone else?
I have also been thinking of stocking here in the last few days and here is what I am thinking right now:

1-Firefish
1-Yellow Clown Goby
1-Six Line Wrasse (maybe)

Still working on inverts and coral selection.

PH is a little low. Try to get a lil more surface agitation. As for stock list I would say 3 fish is pushing the stocking limits. Imo you should pick 2 fish for this tank especially if you have corals planned in the future.

Easy choice then. Maroon clown and yellow clown goby. What will the extra surface agitation do?

It will increase your PH due to better gas exchange

Refugiums help out also to stabalize PH since your PH will drop in the dark you can run your fuge light during night hours to keep the PH at consistent levels

I have a maroon. Mine is pretty cool, but he can be aggressive. He is defiantly the tank bully. Definitely no other clowns if the maroon is in there. I have 2 percs in addition to the maroon and they are confined to one small part of the tank. If they come too far out he rushes them. I am thinking about getting rid of mine because of this. He also tries to bite my fox face lo.
