    I downloaded an app called Aquarimate; it's pretty slick! I'm keeping a log of all my parameters, equipment, livestock, and expenses. Really neat. The app also comes with an encyclopedia of coral... there are a lot of types of coral. Tons! I think I'm just going to start by trying to recognize what I see at my LFS. Looking at them in reference books and this app is overwhelming.

    Also, it turns out the Red Sea Alk test I bought is worst than the API, lol. The Red Sea one I got has accuracy of 1dKH. API looks to be .5. I think I bought the wrong one, should have gone the Red Sea Pro. I bought the red sea PH/Alk combo. I wonder if the reagent is the same, and the only thing that changes is the dropper...

    Anyway, looks like this forum is turning into a sort of journal, which is kind of fun. If any other noobs are reading this, check out the BRStv 52 week series. I'm learning a lot watching that.

    That's it for now. Next update will likely be for installation of lights and power heads.

    Installed light and pumps! Iím pretty happy with how everything turned out. The pictures donít really do it justice. Itís hard to get the metering right with the bright LEDís.

    The flow is working out pretty much as planned. I can see little particles gyring as diagramed in previous posts. The fish are getting kind of thrown around also. Not sure if thatís ok.

    The lighting is also STRONG. May have to ramp down. Not sure what to put in right under the light. BTA or some rad shrooms...

    Iím battling brown diatoms right now. Every two weeks they come back in full bloom (way worse than in picture). I got a cleanup crew from reefcleaners.com and they somewhat help, but I want it gone completely! Any suggestions?

    Thanks all!
