Also, the tank that the AK is at 6.5 (per Elos kit), I am having issues with my acans and wellsys/trachys. They are bleaching and receding. Things like gonipora and my plate coral are fully open/inflated. This is starting to really get to me.

The other tank that the AK is at 7 (per Elos), my torch corals are bleaching. My LED's are set to very low and on for around 8-9 hours a day. I cut back on the light about a month ago and they still continue to bleach.

To put your mind at ease do what I did get a new test kit and test with both and see what you get and work from there it's not cheap but it's cheaper than losing corals.

These are hobby grade test kits. They have no one to answer to because this is not a life or death situation. The same goes for salt mixes, lighting, or anything else in this hobby. the only way to know for sure is if you buck up and send it to a legitimate laboratory.
