Hi everyone. Well, I finally have water in my 55 FOWLR
, it's at 79 degrees, sg
at 1.023 and will be adding 25# cured LR
this sat. My HOB
w/bio has been running all week. Installing two MJ1200 this weekend. AquaC Remora installed but won't run till this baby is cycled. Im excited, yet nervous!
I took a sample of water to one LFS
and he said my pH was a bit high. I went to another and he said it was perfect but I had traces of Nitrite. There is nothing alive or dead. Just new coral sand fresh out of the bags.
I am not worried much but feel I'll just trust my own tests in the future.
Any reccomended brands/types?
Should I get a whole kit or separates?
I learned enough so far to test for Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate and pH. Anything else?
Sorry for so many questions but I want to cover the gamut of testing.
, we have wonderful water out of the tap here in Portland.
