    I need to run tests again but most stay the same so this is where it was
    ph 8.1
    sal. 1.025
    temps 80-81
    nitrates 5
    phos. 0 on n API test
    alk 9
    cal of 500+ oops!

    They are in my 80g main tank under a 39wHOT5 ATI blue plus and Fiji purple but I have been planning on adding another blue + just havnt gotten to it.
    There is also a 250w MH in the back corner that spills over into the area where the frags are now. The MH is on 8 hrs a day and the T5's are on for 12
    I have a no name PH that is 1350 gph and a seio controled PH that goes from 1500gph to about half that and back every 20 minutes. Plus a split 900gph return pump so add about 450gph.

    I have a turbofloter 1000 skimmer in the 30gal sump/fuge and passivly run carbon and purigen in it also. My 38g tank also runs off the same fuge/sump that is run 16 hours a day on the opposite schedual. It is chucked full of rock, some sand and a handfull of chaeto underneith a 70w HPS.
