I have a 150 reefready tank. 29 gallon DIY sump. Berlin Classic Protein Skimmer and I have a 15 gallon refugium in the sump with a DSB and macroalgae. I have a 4" DSb in the tank with about 2/3 capacity of Live Rock.

My tests are:

dKH- 9
Calcium - 400ppm
Nitrates ~ 0ppm
pH - 8.3
temp - 78

Just keep an eye on Alk and calcium. I tend to test pH just to make sure that I am not getting a false Alkalinity reading (even though I hvaen't changed salt mix in quite a while...). With that Marisys, I would probably test Nitrates also.

I did. I can't really see it all that well. It looked like a snail when I first looked at it. Can you get a close-up?

my nitrates haven't been above 5ppm since it cycled and with that filter i'm surprised doing weekly maintenance tho cleaning filter pad's, skimmer chamber and collection cup i'll be happier once i've got rid of it. if my readings are fine and nitrates are not rising should i only water change when my alk start's to drop and wont come back up.
