Yep, been adding the max of 2 teaspoons per gallon and have had my calcium dip below 400. The alkalinity drops to like 7 but on a good note it has stabilized my ph finally. magnesium has been a little low too bit nothing major.

I already have the 2 part ingredients just have to get 2 one gallon jugs and some 1 ounce pumps from bulk reef supply. It's only like 3 squirts of one and 2-3 squirts of the other each day so it doesnt seem too bad.

i highly doubt your corals will miss removing two daylights and replacing them with 2 blues. alot of people run all blues except a row of either purple or actinic

I was thinking of adding two blue plus's in place of the purples. That way I'd have 6 daylight bulbs and 6 actinics. I liked the even split on my 55g, but I DO like a bit more blue in my tanks. lol

Take some pics with them in various "slots" and see what you like. And as Ibrahim said, your corals could just be ruining everything and you could just ship them to us.

Carey pays shipping of course since we'd have to go through the trouble of acclimating and finding a proper spot for them in our tank

I think she needs to wait till I have my tank, and send them to me. Or, you know, that tank takes an awful lot of space. I could take it off your hands.

Since I figure I'll be stocking the 90g soon I just went on my weekly shopping trip for some fishy gear.

Picked up 2 eshopps frag racks for the tank and just finished loading most of the frags I had literally laying around in the 20g. lol

After moving out the rock from here for the 90g i think I need more rock again. hehe The 125g looks so empty now. Anyways here are some pictures, you guys know how I LOVE taking pictures!
