Okay, I went ahead and re-tested everything just now to make sure I have the correct information:
Temp: 76 degrees F
I'm not sure where my calcium kit is, but I'll look for it later!
I've got 1 strawberry and 4 blue-leg hermit crabs, 3-5 small marine shrimp (NOT mantis, they look kind of like teeny orange peppermints) that snuck in on some live rock, and ditto for a tiny orange crab of unknown origin. I've also got several feather dusters, two small brownish-orange anemones, a red brittle star, and a cluster of long tentacled anemones that all hitch-hiked in on the live rock. The live rock itself weighs about 8 pounds in total. 3/4 of the substrate is crushed coral, while the remainder is sand. I've got a bio-wheel and a small venturi skimmer. The last partial water change (~10%) and cleaning was last weekend.
Thanks a ton for any advice you may have!
