That's good, can you post more pics?

What type of salt are you using, and what's your water source?

I need to figure out a way to post pics - I've met my quota on here, it appears.

I buy my water from the LFS. I don't know what salt they use, but they "say" it's one of the best. It's the same thing they use for all their tanks in the store, too.

Just a quick thought - what temp do you guys generally keep your tanks? Mine is at about 74 or 75 F.

If your going to raise the temp do it slowly, over a day or so.

I think I'll leave the temp alone. I don't want to change a lot of things all at once. If I do that, and something works, I won't know what worked

Checked my numbers with the new kit. Man, I hope I get faster at that process!

Mg: 1040
Kh: 3.5/9.8
Ca: 500

Began the daily dosing regimen of 10mL of mg and kh. It says my mg should be 1310 for soft corals and my kh should be 12.1/4.3. Ca is fine. Does that sound about right?
