Ilike the tetra crisps because they stay whole and do not get all mushed up by the chaotic current I have. My cleaner shrimp even eats these once they sit on the bottom.

FWIW, the blender mush is the *only* thing I feed our tank, and our 2 Ocellaris clowns love it.

Amonia = 0; Nitrites = 0; Nitrates = 0; Calcium = 425; pH = 8.3; SG = 1.023; Iodine = 0.6; KH = 150ppm; Coper = 0; Phosphates = ~1.2; Stronium = 50.
Basically just to echo what Steve said - though I do think you should keep up the ca/alk tests - not sure if Steve realizes that you have a few corals in there already.

If you continue to get zero readings for Ammonia & nitrite - I would discontinue testing. Unless something goes really wrong, you should never see these levels rise above zero again.
Likewise with Copper - I only owned a copper test when I had a quarantine tank - and I don't anymore, as I have no plans to add more fish. There is (hopefully!) no reason for copper to ever be introduced to your tank ... I wouldn't bother testing that.

Iodine & Strontium ~ I own the Salifert test kit for each, and have used each *maybe* once or twice. They are brutal to test for, and I don't see the need. I don't dose either, so I find no reason to test. There are a lot of discussions going on out there right now that suggest that dosing either of these dose more harm than good, especially Strontium.
