My ph stays a solid 8.2 in the mornings to 8.3 at night. (I have aragonite underneath a sand bed)
Temperature is a constant 77 degrees (just like my house)
Amm, trite, trate are 0, no phosphates.
I have NOT tested, calk, alk
, mag or strontium since I don't have corals, but am picking up those tests soon.
I am making dead sure everything is stable and pristine before moving on with nemes and corals.
I have my eye on a PLTA at LFS
. The owner is holding it for me. It eats well, farmable coloring, hasn't moved in weeks, and never shows oral disk issues.
