I want some sort of guide taht I can always have on hand while doing my testing until I actually memorize them.
Don't know of a chart (haven't searched), but you can print this out:
specific gravity: 1.021 - 1.026, I personally like 1.024
pH: 8.3 (get as close to this as you can), 8.1-8.4
Nitrate: close to zero as you can for reef tank, higher for FOWLR (depends on specific fish)
Alkalinity: 8-12 dKH
Phosphate: keep at zero
