Attempting to be better at testing my tank, right now it isn't a huge concern. Once I have more coral in the tank I will keep better track. Before my water change I tested dKH it came back 8.4, tested my freshly mixed Red Sea Coral Pro salt 12.8dKH. Four hours after my water change I tested dKH and it came back 8.5, on Sunday evening I tested again 8.4 skipped Monday and tested on Tuesday came back at 8.3dKH. I will be testing tonight and again on Saturday. I've been using the Coral Pro salt for months now, I would have suspected that my dKH would be a little higher. Granted I am doing a weekly 5 gallon water change, total water volume is 65 gallons +-1 gallon. I may look at a different salt if my demands pickup and I do 2 weekly water changes. Otherwise I will look into an alternative method of stability.

Aside from that I noticed this morning that the nem that has been in my tank for a few months now split. Never owned a BTA until recently, very beautiful piece.



Stay tuned, looking to have a new light over the tank in a few weeks!

It is slowly starting to fill in. I was only running 1 light, I am now running 3. I've been feeding pretty heavily, need to test phosphates this week!

Apparently PhotoBucket changed their TOS without notification. All of the images on this thread no longer work as you may have noticed. Photobucket is trying to charge $400 a year to share images on third party sites, as of right now I have access to all of my files on their site. I don't know if I will ever get them updated again, I am looking for a new host and will continue documenting my journey on this thread.
