So I just realized I haven't tested the 90 in awhile lol luckily I did a pwc not too long ago. Numbers seem to be pretty steady tho.
Ph 8.1
Salinity 1.024
Ammo 0ppm
Trite 0ppm
TrAte 5ppm
Mag 1380ppm
Calc 420ppm
kH 9
Phos 0ppm

Obviously the more coral I add the more my numbers will deplete(mag/calc/kh) but my question is, when adding a lot of coral, how quickly do the numbers deplete?

I understand there's a difference in a SPS dominant tank and a softie tank, but just an idea maybe? What's everyone else's numbers look like?

Your depletion will vary Dan. How my tank uses calcium will be different from yours and others. This will vary due to alk and phos levels to the specific kind and size of corals you are keeping. This is why we test. Once you get a feel for the tank, you'll just know. Currently, even mine is rejuvenated by the weekly water change, it takes some major sized sps to cause numbers to drop from what I've heard.

Ok yeah that's what I figured because my numbers are usually not too off from what they were the previous time. Just thought id get an idea, that's all thanks!
