I check Alkalinity once or twice a week. Phosphates and Nitrates are checked every 1-2 weeks. The rest are checked once or twice a month.

Originally I was targeting Alkalinity at 12 dKh, but lately I've been trying to decrease it to 8-9 dKh range.

My Salinity, Temperature, pH and ORP are hooked up to my Profilux controller.

I want to keep all parameters as stable as possible with automates dosing and calcium reactor.



My target levels are:

Temp: 25º-26º C
Salinity: 1.024-1.025
Alk: 7-8dkh
Ca: 440 ppm
Mg: 1350 ppm
Po4: Undetectable
No3: Undetectable
K: 410 ppm

Acknowledgements

I am using this opportunity to express my gratitude to everyone who supported me throughout the course of this Reef Tanq project. I am thankful for their aspiring guidance, invaluably constructive criticism and friendy advice during the project work. I am sincerely grateful to them for sharing their truthful and illuminating views on a number of issues related to the project.

Most importantly, none of this would have been possible without the love and patience of my family. My immediate family to whom this dissertation is dedicated to, has been a constant source of love, concern, support and strength all these years. I would like to express my heart-felt gratitude to my family.
