I have a 48" Nova Extreme fixture with 2 10K daylights, 2 acitinics, and moon lights. The corals don't look so good - just a little yellow on the end - but everything else seems to be doing fine.
Did a water test tonight: Ammonia & Nitrite = 0, Nitrate = 20, ph = 8.4, SG
= 1.022, temp = 80.4. I'm not so sure about the SG
reading: I'm using one of the plastice Instant Ocean hydrometers. I think bubbles get stuck on the float and screw up the readings. I probably should get a refractometer.
