PH in FOWLR

34 gal tank
Running for 5 weeks 2 days
Water temp is 78 degrees F
Tested water all ammonia nitrite and nitrate is good
Lights 2 55watt t5 50/50 bulbs
run 8 hours a day
Accidentally go 1 mushroom coral that I'd like to keep alive


What's should the ph be?
Should I even concern myself with testing alkalinity? <is that a word

You should still keep the ph between 8.1 and 8.4 for fowlr or reef.
I wouldnt bother testing for calcium, magnesium or alkalinity, you have one tiny coral.
If you do get more you may want to start though.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
