    PSA: The importance of calibrating your Trident

    Can you tell at what point I switched out my reagent, and then calibrated? Picture said 1000 words. Calibrate those Tridents when switching out reagents regularly! When I saw my numbers jump up, I erred on side of caution and shut off my doser, which contributed to the decline in Ca+ levels...

    Ich from Urchins?

    Looked at one of my tanks today and surprised by my tangs showing signs of ich. Been ich-free for over probably a year now. Aside from frags, the only thing I've added were urchins from LA. Didn't think they would carry ich but maybe the water in the transfer? I don't QT inverts... but...
