After months of reading and asking questions, I finally got my 30 gallon FOWLR

Tank was started Dec 29th with the following perameters.
Salt level started at 1.024 and as of today it has dropped slightly to 1.022
calcium came up light pink
nitrate started at 5 and has dropped slightly to between 4-5
nitrite started at 0 and now is 0.3
ammonia started at 6.1 and is unchanged so far
ph high is 7.9
ph low is 7.6

I used ro
Now I have to wait and see where everything goes.
I know there is a long way to go but think the tank is starting to do what it is suppossed to. I am seeing a couple of hair like filiments growing on a couple of the rocks.
Slow and steady wins the race and thats what I am intending to do.
