I don't have a phosphate test kit, but I will test for nitrates tomorrow. I use RO/DI water and if my tds start to read over 4-5ppm I always change the DI resin. I probably should upgrade skimmers as well... I normally do a weekly 10% pwc. Anyway... I'll get the nitrate readings tomorrow. I'm in the process of ordering some salifert test kits.

I run my CoralLife 10k and Actinic from 10am-12pm. Then again from 6-9pm.
I'm wondering if lights on and off each day is OK. IMO, the fish should have more normal daily light cycles. On for 8-10 hrs and off, not on, then off and back off again. Just like in the oceans.

Does that help? What is the purpose of them? Just a different light spectrum?
I believe actinic's wattage is also included in your lighting's total wattage, so more light for your corals. Also coralline likes the actinic spectrum.
