That sounds good. Just try your best not to over feed and keep your eye on it. It will be fine, your diligent.

Yeah I don't like APIs nitrate test, it says in the instructions that you will get readings 4.4 higher than other tests because API tests total nitrates and not nitrate nitrogen or something. I've heard some people divide the reading so 20 is actually 4.55

I'm fixing to do a water change on my salt tank. I've got astrea snails on the top under the rim. Do I move them or will they be fine?

Looking good. I fed my corals this morning everything ate real good except the Dendrophyllia which is in day 4 of not opening. Going to go to AC today and pick up a few snails. Has yours cleaned up the rocks? What about the sand?

the snails stayed on the rock mostly. The hermits cleaned the sand some. It looks like the brown stuff is, starting to go away though. the rock was covered in brown and the, live rocks were covered in purple hair like algae . The snails mowed all that down. kinda funny to watch looks like a lawn mower
