I have concluded its a bad monitor probe and I ordered a pinpoint monitor to replace the Milwaukee setup.
I think my PH is actually fine based on both my and the LFS
's API test results. I just didn't think to question the monitor.
I'm working on calc and MG
, keeping an eye on Nitrate and phosphate. I guess I'm close to being able to add LPS
since my nitrates are low. Ideally, I get them below 5 or 0. I have matrix rock in the setup but feel like it's not fully matured yet. I'll just keep up with the PWC
and maybe get a more sensitive Nitrate test kit - recommendations?
Also, the LFS
suggested I switch salt to Tropic Marin Pro because it contains enough calc and MG
to not have to dose as often as my IO reef salt. Any experience with this brand?
