yay, forgot to update you guys. the live rock was covered for transportation, the water was a half inch above sand in tank and about 2 inches over the LR
i still need calcium for the tank after a PWC
, it's at 420. the KH
went up (yay) to 125.3, the phosphates went down, like a watered down version of .25, so i am gonna guess half way. the nitrates wen to 0 - 5. thank goodness.
the salinity is a little high, so i am priming some water and aerating again to add to the tank in the morning.
the fish are good, i have a sulking mushroom (which may be due to aptasia) but the coral put out it's show colors and is happy as Larry
i vaccuumed the sand and took out a good deal of crud, beginning with skimming the top for detritus. i also added a third powerhead to get to a slow/ dead spot under the LR
Domino is being bossy and claiming the tank as his... may have to do something about him, the little punk.
but anyway, so far so good
