I also had 3 chromis at one point. Two of them would always pick on one. All three went in at the same time but for some reason there was one that they did not let eat or swim around. They eventually killed em with in a week or so maybe stressed?.. but the two chromis have never looked happier and alot more relaxed then they did before when it was three if them

+1 for Chormis deaths. I had 4 to start with, two died to bullying, one died mysteriously and the other got his face stuck in the small hole in my protein skimmer pump.

Well, finally got my digital pH meter and calibrated it. My first reading is 7.9 at 4pm. I'll keep a log for a few days and see the fluctuations.

Okay so over the past month i've been monitoring my ph levels on an almost daily basis.

My lowest reading ever was 7.8 and my highest reading ever was 8.2. Most days the fluctuation is from 7.9 to 8.1.

So, I expect these levels and fluctuations are suitable for fish and reef life?

To me that looks OK. Not much of a change. Pretty stable.
