Yeah, the LFS was shocked when I said I don't dose Iodine and Mg. I had them test my CA and ALK. After about 4 trys and 2 people doing it, he porceeded to tell me my CA was 600 and my Alk was on the floor. I told them I don't dose anything, how could CA be that high.

I went home and tested and got CA 385 and Alk at 2.5 meg/L.

crazy

BTW, I have seen the baby hippos too. At $25 they are reasonable but the ones they have never look very good.

The only time such elements come very important is if you keep corals, and other inverts such as anemones sponges ect. Anyways im glad you now know better.

I do have an assortment of softies, LPS's and 2 SPS's. That is why I test anyway. I am going to start dosing kalk since I want some harder SPS's and I need to get my CA up a bit.

I still say the best way to replenish your trace elements is to do regular smal water changes. As for the tiny tangs...I am afraid many, many, many of these little babies met their fate in some kid's "fish bowl", along with a large number of clowns. Thanks to the movies and poor education on the part of LFS, kids are finding Nemo...dead.
