Did another large water change today. This is my second using Reef Crystals.

Temp: 79F
SG: 1.025
Ammo: 0
Trite: 0
Trates: <5 (Down from 10)
pH: 8.0
Alk: 8.9 (up from 7.7)

Thats all the tests I have... Really need Ca. and Mg. I am very pleased with the Alk increase. I'm sure it will continue to rise as I change more and more water with the new mix.

updated progress

Well finally done with the varnish. Ecotech radion is mounted. Sump 24x13x16 is almost complete with the baffles still to be completed. Not too happy with the way the seams turned out but filled it with water and no leaks yet after 3 hours. Gonna let it set for another day or two. Prob around a week out for filling the tank.

Here's some progress pics

Stunning! It really looks good - makes me want a hood even more now! The lights look bright- 1st impressions?

My first impression of the lights are I think they are great. Unfortunately I have a Mac and the radion is not yet compatible with them yet. Gonna need to borrow a laptop or possibly use my phone to adjust the spectrum and times of operation. Not yet sure if I'm able to program using my phone. Light seems to cover well not sure if that will change when I add the water. Take my first impressions with a grain of salt though, as I haven't seen my tank with any other light. Good for me but bad for reviewing purposes.

Thank you. I just hope my sump holds up. I guess if it holds water for a couple of days it should hold. I don't know how else to be sure its gonna hold
