This is interesting. Have you always run your DT at those numbers?  Just curious since you probably have had the most impressive colonies I have seen on the forum. I know there are other SPS masters out there as well but I’ve seen the evidence in your case 😁

Sorry for the delay, I'm just not that active on any forums anymore-It'll change but not for awhile 

 

Ive not ran those numbers in the past- The past was an ULNS with undetectable levels in both PO4 and NO3 but I was also throwing a lot of "food" in for my acros and the KH was around 8.2

 

Since the reboot I run my KH closer to 11-11.5 and have to keep PO4 and NO3 higher or else I'll burn the tips on all my acros.

I was running dKH around 11, and I had a tip burning incident this spring.   And now I learn I had zero PO4 and NO3...   Live and learn.
