Thanks for the feedback. I agree with Jaybird. My tank has been showing zeros for a while and everything else seems to be at acceptible levels so it has been getting a bit monotonous. Maybe I'll just keep an eye on the calcium, s.g. and alk since they can fluctuate fairly easily.

What brand? Y'know Elos is the best... right? And you DO know that if you mix vodka with the liquid heat, you don't have to use as much, PLUS you lower your nitrates.
