    So far tank is going it’s way slowly - there are very slight brown powder on the sand - I assume diatoms. Today I vacuumed part of the sand bed and possibly found a reason why I have elevated Ca and Mg levels - my refractometer was off and salinity was 1.028. Replaced 1.5 gal of water with RO/DI to reduce it. How can average Joe see something with those tiny refractometers?!?

    It was quite boring sat but I think I dialed parameters somewhere close to what I like:
    Sg: 1.026
    Alk: 9
    CA: 440
    No3: 12
    PO4: 0.04

    I hope corals will like it

    Looks like @ashburn2k (and @JVU ) took pretty good care of you! If you ever make it down to Redwood City, give me a holler and we'll see if I can get you some more!
    Cheers! Mark

    Looks great, nice and clean. Really like the shelves integrated into the aquascape.
