    thank you Corailline!

    I just put a order in today at unique corals, sadly the LFS that sold mainly corals closed today.

    I went out yesterday and bought the red-sea coral colors test kit and supplements.
    I must say the potassium test takes about 30 - 40 mins wow.
    interesting results though:

    potassium 428 (really high)
    iron = 0
    iodine = .09

    my ca l. 460
    alk. 10
    mag 1400

    now I don't dose anything but bulkreef supply 2 part alk and cal and mag.
    so I'm not sure why the potassium is so high.

    Love the rock work. Looks like you gave this design a lot of forethought! I bet it fills out beautifully.

    Thanks!
    Luckily I had 3 buckets of dead rock left from my previous tank. It makes it allot easier when you have a lot of rock to play with.

    Seems like I read somewhere that adding the two part additives will throw chemistry off. Calcium-chloride, magnesium-sulfate... I think sulfate a and chloride are the two that go off track. Water changes or kalk are the solutions.
