Hello there,
I have just setup a new saltwater tank and after one week of running, I got my water tested. The lady told me that my pH is 7.4, quite low. my Amonia and Nitrate are little bit high.

Currently, my tank doesn't have anything except for the liverock. How do I control these levels?


Here is my tank's blog
what is the size of the tank/filtration/temp/water?

pH for salt water needs to be at 8-8.3 and your Live rock should have brought that up, how long has that been in their? it may take time to bring it up, add a inch of live sand to help as well.
do you have any peat in you tank?
