  1. API test kits are driving me nuts! What colors do you see? (Nitrite is zero)
  2. Hi Folks, I'm currently in the cycling process of my Red Sea Reefer 170. This is my third tank. I started this tank with BRS Dry Rock, and live sand from BRS. I added a shrimp 3-4 days ago. It's beginning to disintegrate in my filter sock, still no ammonia readings. I added a small live rock and some chaeto yesterday. Before adding shrimp I began with Red Sea Mature Pro cycling kit however my readings using API & Salifert show to be 0 on everything Ammonia, Nitrate, Nitrite. This is after seven days... 77.3 *F 8.17 ph 34.2 salt 233 ORP Visually, the tank looks clean. No signs of diatoms. Where the $#%* is my ammonia haha?! Either this tank is cycling very efficiently and it's undetectable or Red Sea's Mature Pro cycling kit is pure snake oil. Prove me wrong. What to do next... Edit: I added the live sand and dry rock one week before beginning the cycling product from Red Sea.

    Varied Readings (Ca)

    Hi all, I bought myself a Calcium Hanna Checker and just tested it out. I've been having issues with low Calcium that I'm trying to solve, so I thought I'd get it to make my life easier. Previously, I was using the API test kit, and I was slowly raising my readings. Today, I got a reading of 380 ppm with it. But I tried the Hanna checker, and it told me 418 ppm.... I did some googling and found a few people saying they had the same sort of inconsistent/high results. I guess my question is, did I waste my money? Should I pick up a Salifert kit instead? Reviews on Marine Depot were positive, so I'm very frustrated about making a poor purchase/not doing enough research. I know $60 is chump change in this hobby, but still....
  4. Hello all, Here is a photo of the ammonia test I just ran: My pH is 8.0, Nitrites are 0, and nitrate is around 5. I have accounted for all livestock except two of my three ceriths which are probably hidden in the sand bed somewhere. I had this ammonia issue a few weeks back and it might have been what killed my blasto coral and firefish but I’m not sure. The tank has been running for almost 4 months now. I have not added anything new except for a hammer coral about a week ago.
  5. I suspect my little frostbite clown of having intestinal parasites. He’s in a 10g tank with a banggai cardinal. I have used API GC to treat for worms in a freshwater tank, and I know saltwater hobbyists use it too. Will is be safe for my reef though? I have mostly softies, and few LPS, and one BTA. Also, should I treat the water column, or would soaking pellets be enough?

    API test kit test tube rack

    For anyone that has a 3D printer, I've made a test tube rack that holds the tubes from API test kits and hangs on the glass. The files can be found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2561728
