Beengirl: thanks! I got the Pukani from BRS and is it just gorgeous with so many crevices. I was also able to saw it to even out the bases and used a chisel to carve a cave all the way through one piece and open up that archway.
boniewoodruff: good luck to you too!
Salinity: 1.024 seem to have this dialed in. Will 1.024 be ok or should I try to get to 1.025 which I can do with just a bit of evap.
PH 7.8 not going to worry about this, I think it will even out.
so done with this part of the cycle
: 5ppm at least. I think I am just having issues reading the purple on the chart. I dipped a multitest stick and it actually showed this up at 10ppm. I think I have a long way to come with Nitrite. I have heard that Bio-Spira works for the nitrite portion of the cycle. How long should I give it for the NO2
to come down to think about that? The nitrite portion is the longest part.
now I just wait for the nirtrites.....
