Yeah I was thinking of doing that actually. I have two questions.

1. I'm getting green, red and purple coraline Algae on my live rock and snail/hermit shells. Isn't this a little too early?

2. My nitrates are zero. Should they be higher?

It's normal and it can happen sooner sometimes. Test to see where your calcium is at.

Also, nutrAtes at 0? That's fine IMHO. my nitrAtes always hovered over .05 but I have a heavy bio load. I don't see any issues with your level being at 0

That's the weird thing. My bio load is pretty heavy as well.

Haha don't question a good thing. Your maintenance schedule maybe on the money and you may be doing all the right things. Keep up the great work!! Never question success because it may answer back

Thanks and you're right. Now if I get my new nuvo 16's water parameters good I'd really feel better.

Those are hard lol. I wish you luck though. I had a Nuvo 8 and I smashed it after about 2 months lol.
