Ideal Measurements

Hi all,

I recently inherited a saltwater tank, with coral and 4 fish, unfortunately the tank was cracked and it ended up flooding my lounge, however on a more positive note, in the couple of days that I had it, I caught the bug and have had my new tank going for about 2 months now.

I live in the UK and trying to get information about ideal measurements for phosphate tests, nitrate tests etc, and then countermeasurements to take if they are toohigh/low is a big struggle.

I have a testing kit, that tests everything I need to (I think). Can someone help give me the tolerance levels for the following:

pH
kH
NH3 and NH4
NO2 and NO3
PO4
Ca

The tank is approximately 260 litres (UK), and has live rock, with a couple of pieces of small coral, and currently 4 fish (Regal tan, yellow tan and 2 clowns).

Any help you have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

James
