    That's awesome when you get nice easter eggs in your LR and not unwanted parasites. When I take pics of my tank, I usually turn off the cirulating pumps in the tank to keep the flash from refracting from the moving water. I also take the picture at a slight angle if I use a flash to get nice pics. The picture I have of my puffer, lion and ray are from a DSLR with no flash, only using the tank lighting.

    PO4 is just a waste byproduct. Unless you have a method of disposing of it, you will see build up, or algae will bloom (and use it for food). A phosphate reactor or macroalgae will take care of your levels pronto.

    Ok, sorry. I don't know what the CO2 is for.. thought that was a planted fresh tank thing.. anyways. the mini cycle could be from new rock or possibly if you added a few additions at once. You should probably bring up your mag a bit. They usually say around 1400 ppm is about right. Your PH should be above 8.. but your ammonia i have no idea where that could be comin from.. do you have a dead fish in your tank somewhere.. or clean with windex?

    The CO2 is for the calcium reactor, and that is the reason for the drop in the ph I was doing some reading and the C02 is doing it wonder if i could cut it back a bit and still have the reactor work properly

    And as for the ammonia there are only 1 fish in the system a Pj Cardinal and the clean up crew. NO Windex lmao thats a bad thing lol i use a eye glass shamis to clean the glass no spray
