    Just wanted to inform everyone that I went to Petsmart this weekend and they are having a "clear the shelving" sale on Coralife salt products. I believe it was $33 for a 5-gallon bucket. They were also running a sale on IO 5-gallon buckets at $35 each through 11/27.

    the side of the red sea pro salt bucket says that a level of 450ppm of calc will be at 1.022 and the higher the SG the higher the calc level goes. I kept my SG at 1.024 so i have a calc level of 520ppm. This was checked with a api kit and verified with sailfert so i know its right. And it is the...

    Now that I'm switching over from a FO tank to a reef tank, I thought I'd get some more specialized test kits and yesterday I did my first round of tests. The only one which was a little fishy the way the test went was Strontium, so I'm not 100% sure that one's accurate. Here's the results...

    I'd thought I'd kick this off by asking each of us to decribe our current systems and share in plans for future ones as well. I have a Oceanic 70T/RR with stand I purchased while I was down in Houston for school. It's lit with a 150w MH x 2-65w PC actinic pendant. Not quite sure about the...
