So I checked my parameters and was pleasantly surprised in a lot of areas. I had dumped in a capful of magnesium, 2 part calcium and alk prior to testing. Anyway mag was 1450, a bit high, calcium was 450 also a bit high and alk was 9.5 which is ok but higher than I usually run. Nitrates were 5rpm so well controlled but present so that was good. Once my water is made I will do a WC with no adjustments to the IO which typically is low in everything so after a few WCs the parameters should come down to closer to NSW which is where I try to land. Nonetheless, the tank has run pretty stable considering how easy it is to maintain and how little that I do adjustments.

And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, ...and God sawthat it was good. Genesis 1:20 - 21

Current Tank Info: A 56 gallon high nutrient macro algae/coral reef that overflows into a basement 30 gallon seahorse macro algae fuge that overflows into a 20 gallon sump
