    Wow didnt mean to rub you the wrong way it was just my opinion that water changes wasnt the only way to reduce nitrates of course you should do water changes but it isnt the only way thats all I meant by it. Sorry if I came off rude I wasn't trying to be.

    Sorry no offenese but that is simply not true here is part of an artical from Dr. Foster and smith on how nitrate is converted into nitrogen gas and released into the air. However, nature and more elaborate aquarium filtration systems continue to further break down nitrate. Within this stage of the nitrogen cycle, another bacteria set converts nitrate into nitrogen gas, which is then released at the water's surface and absorbed into the air. This natural process of nitrate removal from your aquarium is known as complete nitrification or de-nitrification.

    Question is why are you worrying about the nitrate level at day 5 you should wait 3-4 weeks regardless if you have live rock or not in my opinion the nitrate level will come down on its own anyway and nitrate is not what kills fish anyhow its ammonia and nitrite that you have to worry about. Just my 1/2 cent.

    Project Quiet IM Nuvo 40

    Nice set up looks like you made the right choice. What else amazes me is what little salt creep I get in my IM in my last set up lets just say I was getting CREEPED out but these IM's have very little they are awesome.👍

    Humidity issues?

    Not true never had problem and almost all my tanks have always been up against a wall.

    Salt Mixing Situation

    Just make sure if you get a refractometer to get calibrating fluid and calibrate it often just the slightest change in temp and humidity will change your reading on your refractometer 👍
  14. Lost 2 montis after the hurricane temp in my tank went way up due to losing power so I would say they are finicky all the rest of my frags pulled through, oh wait lost a cyphastrea too almost forgot about that one other than that everything else turned out ok.
