Ok!! Fisrt let me again thank you all, this site is a dream!
Water changes, I have no problems changing water more than once a day if need be.
Ill plan to do another large water change tom. I did roughly 50% just now.
Thanks for the info on carbon. I will rotate weekly. If you think it will help matters, I can go to the store and get more biomedia and take out one carbon.
Gotcha on the gravel vac, the great thing is I am not seeing much sediment coming trhu the tubing, I see good suction, but after 2 seconds or so the water in the vac is clear, to the naked eye! This morning I probably vac'd about 1/3, I did a good vac yesterday moving the driftwood and coral, today I went around them.
I havent touched the pH since 1/31 after the ppl at the store said dont worry about it.
Prime, added it.
Salt, read directions and gave exactly that, think it came out to be 1 cup plus 2 tbsp.
Plan for tom.- large water change, add prime, add salt again?, and test before water change?
