While I was at That Fish Place last night I was also checking out the salifert testers. After talking to three different employees about testing they all led
me to the Red Sea kits due to easiness, accuracy, and price. Two of the employees exact words (which was kinda weird) were " by all means stay away from API testers for saltwater". This would have been nice to know before I bought every single tester API makes a few months ago. Lol.
I also bought 2 new MH
bulbs. I explained to them that my fixture was two 150w 20,000k MH
with two 460nm t5's. I told them I didn't know when the last time the bulbs had been changed so they suggested changing them. BUT they said I would be better off with the 10,000k bulbs for maximum coral growth...seem legit??
