That was good stuff too, and pretty clean mixing. I stopped the TMPR because I was getting alk readings of 8 and lower. However, I found later that was probably my own fault because my refractometer needed to be recalibrated. Now I recalibrate it every week before I do my pwc.
As far as simplicity of walking another person through it, I think the TMPR would be easier. But for me, I'm going to keep using the ESV unless I want to save some money on somethng else.
What are you doing an internship in?

180-gallon acrylic mainly SPS, SWC 1A Cone Skimmer, APEX Neptune Controller, 3x MP40w Vortechs, Tunze 6045, Radiums 250w in Lumenarc Minis, Galaxy Ballast, BRS Dosers
