Parameter testing

How soon after testing the parameters can I recheck them if I have to add supplements? Already did water change.

I believe it was 12-24 hours for accurate results. Not 100% sure though

Thanks. I wasn't sure either. Probably is best to wait a day.

What are you adding or thinking of adding? The majority of average tanks dont really need much added to them other than a good sized water change.

If you have an abundance of corals that are sucking up the elements then it's time to consider dosing.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My 75 mixed reef tank is 40 ppm. I would like to have them lower. Should I just do another water change in a few days?

Yes, not sure what supplements your wanting to add but no supplement will export nitrate (assuming nitrate is what your saying is 40ppm).
