Well, the water in the tank is 78 degrees, The thermometer says so, plus that's the only setting the heater i use has. I measured the SG
in the tank, and got a high reading. So i drained some water, and took another reading, and it was normal, but when i checked the water i drained, it was high again. The only thing i can think of is that i had air bubbles in my hydrometer. I will let it sit another hour or two, and take another reading. If it comes out normal, i will go ahead with the live rock and agronite.
Internet sources suggest the shrimp method. However, the book i have says since i will be using fully cured live rock, all i need to do it check the ammonia and nitrate levels for three days, if i get three zeros, i can begin to stock the tank...
