So, arrow crab will be going into the 36 with these new additions. I'd been wanting a blood shrimp for awhile but they were never available. Bone grass into my fuge which I will be restarting. And the flame angel will be into the 36 as well. That'll set things up to be done for quite some time.
Does the 36 still have a snowflake eel?

Was only 35 bucks, so I jumped.

AND Hanna told me what about my tank?
Phosphate .07
Calcium 600
Alkalinity 96 ppm...and if 1 ppm = .02 then that should give me my dkh...but my math tells me i have 1.92 dkh which isn't possible so I just fail at math.

Oh wow that's a deal. And yeah, that might be your problem.. 600 ca is pretty high, enough to make corals angry. And idk about the Alk, I'm sure there is an online converter though.

Yeah, I'm not sure why it is so high tbh...and I wouldn't say my corals are angry, just not colorful.

If I didn't think it'd work I wouldn't be doing it. And if it doesn't hopefully I'll get a good show.

Your 96 ppm gives about 5.4 dKh or 1.92 meq/l

Right math, wrong term.

Well, there is my issue. my dkh is low...should be closer to 8. In all honesty, I don't recall if I have any buffer...if not, I guess I'll be trying out the baking soda route.

In better news, after almost a year of waiting the union I was a member of prior to promoting finally got back to me...with a fat check returning union dues after 3 rounds of dues being taken out of my paycheck. That check effectively paid for my 3 hanna testers, recent SWfish.com buy, and the xmas shopping that I completed on Thursday. It's gonna be a good day Tator.
