This is cool, did you get the $39.99 testing package?

Actually went in with another member, he can ID himself if he wishes, and we split a "Reference Kit" which is a 4-test package. Brings the cost of each test down to like $28 vs. buying the $40 individual test.

my test kits? Close. I read my Mag at 1100, they say 1000. I read my alk at 7, they say 6. So there is an offset.

But, I tested the water straight out of the tank. Their test was after 2 days of shipping. Does that affect it? I can't answer that.

Either way, it did confirm I need to start supplementing. My 2-part kit has arrived, and I'll begin after this weekend's PWC.

LOL - nice sparky

I meant to get an updated FTS for ya'll last night, but alas it slipped my mind. I shall try again tonight.

I put this in new acquisitions, but for completeness it belongs here as well. This will have to hold ya'll over.

MHs are already off for the night, but here's under the actinics. The white balance is set for the MHs, so the tank right now looks a little bluer than the pics.

Slow shutter speed, hence the blurry fish.
