Recommended Posts

0I was under the impression 46 ppb on the hanna checker was good.  that was 0.046 ppm.  BUT THAT is phosphorus not phosphates.  OMG. I am at like 0.14. no wonder I have some unhappy LPS today....  

 

SO i added 1/2 cup of GFO,  and tmr I get the chaeto from shawn.  MAN I feel dumb again!!!!

shawn gave me chaeto. and I have it in the tank along with the new fuge light. ( H160). and then I am good on my level. I did the third 50% water change. so my metals should be way down too. and I sent off another ICP test to start the dos i hope. likley. this week. but by the weekend for certain.
