Calcium reading is coming in at 480 ppm, is this too high??
alkalinity is reading at 3.8 meq/l
ph is reading at 8
ammonia and nitrite at 0
thanks, will test again in about 3 days, nitrate coming in at approx 5 ppm
calcium still at 480, good bad?
Remember, calcium is utilized by coraline algae, corals, and the buffering system. Calcium will slowly deplete in aquariums without live corals, much faster in systems with corals.
It is not uncommon for it to remain unchanged for a week or more in FOWLR systems that do not have large amounts of coraline growth.
You're doing fine.
Great :) fish are doing great so far as well! cabbage leather has finally opened and looking great! UV sterilizer coming tomorrow
