I tested my water parameters today and came up with the following readings:
Alkalinity 3.89 meq/l
Magnesium 1300 ppm
Calcium 420 ppm
I'm really happy with these parameters. The reading that really shot up was alkalinity which went up from 2.89 to 3.89 since my last reading. The only thing I might boost a little to 1400 ppm is the magnesium levels, but all the levels look fine to me right now. I'm really happy with the calcium levels consider how many sps corals I have growing in the tank.
I'm really amazed at an encrusting coral I bought that was lime green with purple tips. I neglected it for awhile and a lot of it died away, but the polyps that are left are orange on a purple background. That is the encrusting color morph I really want from exoticreefs, but it looks like I might already have it in my tank!
Sent three bags of macroalgae to a fellow reefer via priority mail today. I hope it makes it there okay.
