ok, I'll call brs and see if i cant get one of the guys to walk me through the testing. I'm pretty sure the alkalinity is right though, its at 9.3 dkh.

BRS is quite confusing, they have a section with instructions on how to dose Kalk using an ato.

Kalkwasser-Instructions

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My weekly shopping trip ended with me getting a purple stylophora.

It has much more purple in it than the picture can show, looks like a nice healthy specimen.

Nice pick-up - I'm going Sunday to get my first "real" SPS (other than my monti). I'm excited but still unsure of what to get!

Your's looks very nice... Also good luck with the Kalkwasser, and the checkers!

Very pretty piece of coral! I'm sure u have said way back, but what kind of light set up are you using? I'm still looking at lighting for my 90g build.

I'm using a 12 bulb current extreme pro. So far my results have been good. Running ATI bulbs as well, every little bit helps.

6 lamps per 3 feet, is what she means, for a total of 12.
