What is the total turn-over rate per hour for the tank?

okay I think I might have figured something out kind of silly but, when I take the tube and put it up against the card it shows 7.8 but when I take the tube and stand it up on the card and look down it shows 8.2 so I am gonna go by that reading. The fish and corals look great everything is exactly the same as when I posted a pic in the nano forum. I am not sure what the turnover rate is. How do I find that out? All other readings are great just where I need them. I just did a 20% water change I usually only do 10% but I did 20% today. As I said everything looks good shrooms are growing well. I did notice my cabbage leather perk up when I raised the calcium level to 410 from 380. I did that over about 5 days. I just wish they had a better color chart for PH because I think I might be a little color blind. LOL

Can you take it to your LFS and see what they test? I bet you are correct.

Add up the water output of all your equipment -ie. power heads, filters, etc. in GPH and divide that by your tanks size in gallons. That will give you the turnover rate per hour for your tank.

went to lfs and they said that my ph was 8.1 so not as bad as what I thought. I will try to find out what the turnover is but I cant remember what the filter is. I know the powerhead is a 600.
