My 46 gal FOWLR
has been up and running for about a month. Tank currently has 2 striped damsels, a flame scallop, a scarlet shrimp, 4 hermit crabs and about 20 small snails. It appears that I have less purple coraline algea on my LR
than when I started. It definitely has not spread to any of the LR
that had none when I started.
Ammonia is always - zero
Nitrites are always - zero
Nitrates are always - zero
is 1.022 and stable
PH 8.3 and stable
I just received some new water testing kits and here are the results of today's tests:
Phosphates - .8 (I put 50g of PhosBan into the AC
300 to help with this)
Alkalinity - 4 on the quick test and 3.5 on the accuracy test
Calcium - 255
I have a new jar of Kent Kalkwasser but the directions are not too clear. Other than mixing it with fresh water; how much should I add and how often to start getting my alkalinity and calcium levels up?
Any other suggestions?
