Sk, to tell you the truth, I am not testing my water parameters on a regular basis (Never like Chemistry in school...LoL). In fact, the last time I tested was about 02 months ago. I tend to watch the Corals, if they not happy, I'll try and figure out what the problem is, maybe then do a bit of testing. I do however hav a Kalkwasser running (No Calcium Reactor) and I drip Iodene, Strontium and Magnesium on a small scale (I set the drip rate to about 02 litres every week)

Thanks Sean, It seems you and I are on a similar dosing plan (mine on a much smaller scale). I do test regularly, but thats mostly me being paranoid.

Do starfish eat fish? I thought I read somewhere that they were aggressive and will eat fish Lol I couldn't imagine a starfish trying to catch a fish though.

Oh and your tanks amazing! So beautiful :D I'm jealous.
