I agree temps are a bit low and I have had little to no success raising it (5 diffrent heaters) I have no chiller .... SPG is fine at 1.023-1.025 for a reef .... some keep it a bit higher ... I am switching to catalina water at the present time ...and use distilled and have so for 3 years for top off and for mixing ..... I can not put in a RO
as we rent ... and buying it at 3bucks a gallon is a bit off the price for me.... I have a signifigant bioload in the tank with 4 fish 2 clowns paired and mated fire fish ... I do weekly water changes of 10%
as I stated the tests are WNL as stated above .
Most salts are almost the same anyways, test the water that is mixed up before putting it in your tank, if it isnt far off from your existing water and there isnt any ammonia then you are laughing.
HUH ya lost me on that statement , as there should be no ammonia if it is fresh mixed ....
I should also add that the lights are new 80 watts pc
lighting . 3/4 acitinic for the bluer look
