I like your photography/ photoshop adjustment skills. The pictures look very correct in terms of what I'd imagine the colors to be. Bluespot's colors seem very correct.

Thank you. That's what I try for anyway. The first set were iPhone pictures hence the poorer quality. The second set were with a Nikon dslr, then adjusted pretty minimally in Lightroom. I generally look at a piece of live rock in the image and try to adjust it to what it actually looks like. The coral or subject of the image tends to follow suit.

In regards to my testing this morning here's where things ended up.

 

Mg - 1410 (much more normal)

N03 on replacement water 0 for both tests

K - 380

 

I've never tested for K so I'm going to have to do some research to understand what to do with that result and then adjust if necessary, as well as monitor any daily decline in that value. The test from Red Sea is quite time consuming at around 20 min in total, and a +/-5% accuracy. I'll be glad when I narrow it down and can have a defined dosing schedule.

Thanks Marc, this build was super fun. Probably my most enjoyable one yet. Here I was thinking the photos could have been much better, I gave my camera to a friend and have been using my wife's nikon which I'm not used to yet. Most of them were over exposed and the white balance was waaay off.
