    Re: my 3 footer

    muzzys test results
    Your Tank
    Parameters Parameter
    35 ppt Salinity
    8.5 DKH Alkalinity
    500 ppm Calcium
    1230 ppm Magnesium
    8.00 pH
    0 ppm Ammonia
    0.01 ppm Nitrite
    5 ppm Nitrate
    0.01 ppm Phosphate


    so mag needs to go up a bit
    and calcium down so corals get growing and use it up lol

    any advice

    All looking good apart from as you say the Mag level. Bring it up using some tank tests stuff to 1350. I have used Muzzys stuff and its spot on.
