Quick tank update.

Did a phosphate and carbon change today.

Calc 410ppm
KH 6.1 added 20grams and will add another 20grams tomorrow. The auto top up had run out.
Mag (no need to test any longer as salt automatically high so it stays at the right range with water changes)
Nitrate (due to biomass no need to test any longer as automatically low as bio mass does its work)
Phos 0.00 (changed it as I have every two weeks. As of now I'm going to test bi weekly or monthly)

Salt 1.026
Temp 26.5 degrees

Tank update.

KH 5.5 added 20grams and will add another 20grams tomorrow. The auto top up cannot keep up at this time of year and need to increase the dosage again....
Mag (no need to test any longer as salt automatically high so it stays at the right range with water changes)
Nitrate (due to biomass no need to test any longer as automatically low as bio mass does its work)
Phos 0.01 (changed it as I have every two weeks. As of now I'm going to test bi weekly or monthly)

Salt 1.026
Temp 27.5 degrees on average... (this is the fastest growth temperature for corals. I always notice corals accelerate in growth with the higher temperatures in summer.
