First parameter readings


New member
Hello all! Well, we finally got our live rock last night and were up till 2:00 this morning getting it "just right." It looks gorgeous! Water is crystal clear and the aquascaping is pretty cool. We have 50 lbs of live rock in a 45 gallon tank; 25 lbs of Aragonite sand; and 10 lbs of live sand

We did our first parameter reading this morning...
