    It's been a month and the room's coming along. I built most of the top section of the desk. It'll be used both for storage and work. I've only built the first of 4 cabinet doors and will wait to paint them and my shelves until it's warmer and I can use my sprayer. I also added a towel ring next to the tank so I can clean up small spills easily. I created a quick spreadsheet for my left monitor as a way to quickly check my most recent water change and results for Ca, Alk and Mg. The nice part is that I added conditional formatting so that as the days go by on my WC and tests the dates go from green to yellow to red. Same thing with my test results, I setup ranges for them that are color coded. The tank's going well too. I have a pair of ocellaris (1 snowflake) that have bonded and go everywhere together. There is also a red firefish, brittle star and 3 frags. I'm trying to accumulate more frags and need to add a cleanup crew.

    Since I restarted my tank after the crash and room build I thought I'd just roll along for a while without testing, but once I got a few frags I got back on track. I found my Alk was really low, the first test was 6.8. I am using the Hanna checker for testing but was using reagent that expired in July, so I decided to pick up a fresh bottle today because I was afraid that I was dosing too much and want to make sure the result is accurate. I was up to 9.24 dKh, then tested with both reagents today. Turns out my reading with the new kit was only 7.62. I tested again with both vials just to take that out of the equation and the results were the same within 1 ppm. It looks like my expired reagent was giving me a bad result, I am curious how low the Alk really was. I noticed that my frags opened up significantly after dosing so I bet it was pretty low. It goes to show that even though the test kits look fine you really should replace them when they expire.

    I most recently used the Elos kit and liked it.

    I recently purchased the Salifert test kit but prefer the Red Sea set up (glass curvet and holder/shaker hardware). So, I use the Salifert chemicals with the RedSea hardware. Both kits are similar in accuracy in my opinion.

    Looks like we are nearing 15 members for this monthly meeting! I'm sure we can hit 20 though...😀

    I would pull the pump out and clean it and remove the impeller and re set it. Sounds like maybe the impeller is jumping a little. Could be a crack in the impeller but hope not. I just put a IM mighty jet in my 25 lagoon and man what a quiet and powerful pump. Price is great too for a controllable small pump.
