what color. it might mean that you did not get the right number of drops in the 5 ml test tube. or it could be off the chart

Because your lazy huh? Maybe this isn't the best hobby for you, and with no LR I hope you have some top of the line mechanical filtration. To be successful you need patience, allow it to mature. If you rush it.. your bound to mess up, as you have already seen.

The recommended amount of LR is 1½ - 2 pounds per gallons of gross tank volume. In your case, 100-150 pounds of LR. Six is just not going to cut it unless you have a good wet/dry and going fish only. Then the small amount of LR will be decoration and hiding places for the fish.

The most important thing to remember is that nothing GOOD ever happens quickly in a saltwater aquarium.

Well, I was thinking about a coral reef but the lighting is VERY EXSPENSIVE and I have already put about 1000$ into the tank. LR is also quite exspensive, 4.50$ a pound! I added buffer cuz my ph was very low and it was recommended

Sounds like a very wise choice right now. Perhaps over time you can slowly add live rock and build up from there to a full blown reef.
