this test is of my 60 gallon FOWLR
system w/ 70lbs of live rock.
Salinity 1.023 / 1.024 - Deep six Hydrometer
Calcium 500 ppm
( about 1 hr after dosing w/ purple up)
Carbonate Hardness (KH
) 196.9 (11 dKH
Phosphate 0 ppm
Nitrate 10 ppm
PH 7.7 (tetra test)
I know my PH is off, but i dont really trust this kit.. i have some PH Buffer 8.2 that i may use after i go tomorrow to my LFS
to buy a better PH tester. Nitrite test kit is also Tetra Test (found it in closet).. All the rest is API tested. I had some diatom issues, it has cleared up, however i have powder type green algea all over the glass. I just did a water change about 3 days ago (5 gallons salt RO
). Also tomorrow when i goto my LFS
tomorrow what other test kits should i buy?
