They also make a reef test kit which includes test for phosphate, silicate, and iodide. You will probably also want it in the future.

Thanks a bunch really.


Right now I just want to learn my tank hehehe I want to know how little changes affect everything (Water, Salt lighting, Skimming)


Thanks god for hardy hermits and the emerald.... and also that I didnt have any other swimmers or they would probably be dead

I think I want to make sure I can maintain the correct levels before i throw any swimmers in there

I will checkout the seachem kits and get one...

You definitely want to be able to keep your tank stable before you add anything. Good luck.

From what I have read here some folks think a 29 gal is hard to maintain due to its size.

3 days after I put water in this tank I saw a 80gal on ebay w/stand for $300.00 and he is in my town!! lol

Would love a bigger tank w fuge and such but gotta put food on the table first

Thanks again for the input

Just stay on top of your water top offs and remember to double check before you add anything to the tank. It does not take much error to throw off 29 gallons of water.

What time of day did you test the pH to get that reading and what is the AM and late PM readings? For the most part depending on your answer, a pH of 8.45 is nothing to worry about. The 8.1-8.3 that is commonly touted as prefered is just a general guideline and indeed not something to be strictly adhered to.

Cheers
Steve
