Checked PH today, it is at a definite 8.0. Not sure if it could change over night but I did take far more time to make todays tests. Most things were the same. Nitrites seemed possibly lower. dKH was a definite 12 today. Yesterday I was a bit unsure.

I hate these color comparison charts, wish I could get digital read outs...I am sure that would require a full size lab :p

Lets give this a couple of days before making a decision. I would not use the same water source in the future, but if your pH stays at 8.0 or higher and your calcium & alkalinity levels are within the zone desired, you may be fine.

Sorry I dropped the ball on communication yesterday. It was my moving day for my reef. Good times.

On the subject of live rock, the rock is fine. It is only pH control that I am concerned with, along with the long term impact of calcium & alkalinity adjustments.

Haha thank you Pasfur, I thought you gave up on me :p So we'll wait another few days and see. I will test again on Sunday.

I actually found a couple things that may be growing in the tank off the live rock. I will take pictures and maybe someone can ID these for me.

Thanks guys!
