    There are cheaper options, yes. 1360 is actually perfect. ESV has been in the business for years and are well known for their 2-part.

    I use b-ionic and have to dose magnesium. How high is your mag.?

    Maybe once a week I mix up some Red Sea energy with reef roids and dump it in the tank. I haven't been doing that lately though. I’m having a small diatom bloom on my sand right now, I’m guessing from over feeding. I have my auto feeder set to feed 3x and I feed frozen when I’m home, like a lot of it.

    No trace elements. I've done a few ICP. My first was with triton, which alerted me to my elevated tin. Since then, I've done a couple with ATI, mainly because I wanted to monitor the progress on my tin levels and also I could get my ro/di tested as well. After a few months to get to 100% water change, This was my results from April. My tin was 40 prior. In attempt to knock down my tin levels. I've done 2x treatments of Triton detox, 4x treatment with Panta Lith, and a bag of TLF metasorb. After a few more water changes, I'd like to send in another sample to be tested soon, likely by the end of this month.

    Do you feed scolys? I have never fed mines, but he's always looking hungry at night.

    It's been pretty good. I'm still using the original one I bought a few years ago. I replaced one of the motors because of rust, totally my fault though. I bought a couple feet of tubing like 2 yrs ago, I don't remember where or what size.. Consider I change out the tubing's maybe 2-3 times a year, it's gonna last me a veryyyy long time. Right now, I'm dosing ESV alk/cal. at 40ml and mag. at 6ml daily. Last checked my parameters was, Alk. 8.0dkh Cal. 420ppm Mag. 1350ppm

    Took a few pics with the phone during a late water change, can't believe it's been up a year now. I also broke down the monti caps and redo them again for the 3rd time now, they grow so fast.

    In that size tank, I would definitely run some fresh carbon. Who knows what could be in that nail. SPS may not react to it right away.

    I have the Hanna alk. and ULR phosphate checker. I use Hanna alk most of the time, it’s been pretty consistent even with the particles. The testing results were identical to another bottle of reagents I have which seems free of contaminants. I haven’t tested for po4 in a while, as I’m not dealing with any algae problems atm. The last time I checked, it was at 0ppb.

    Just opened a new reagent bottle with this crap in it. Hanna has great QC.

    No, it’s all depending on your system. If you have more nutrients, it’s fine to run it longer. I’m only doing 6hrs and my chaeto grows just fine.

    4 different test kits, different results

    I use Hanna a lot, 3-4 times a week. Their problem is always the reagent, the longer it’s been opened the more off their read outs get.
