    Here are my Triton results

    Nah, those phosphates are rocking. 0.09 mg/L = 0.09 ppm. I can't say much about the rest. Edit: They are 0.009 ppm. That might be a bit low.

    Those don't really look bad. A lot of halogens are low, but meh. Fresh sea salt should fix that. Do you think it could be bugs?

    Oh, and any PVC or bulk heads that might be required. I am unsure on your plumbing and if it is cemented in, but go to your local fish store and grab what you might need. Plumbing is a pain to not have when you need it.

    Buying a new house, need advice for moving tanks.

    Albertareef has it right. Do it quickly and be prepared. You'd be surprised what can happen when you are moving a little piece of the ocean. I have moved a 29/75 gallon tanks before and it is a pretty straightforward process, but nerve racking. If it is within the same town and during the summer, I don't think you will have to worry about temperature issues. All I did was, Make sure the location the tank is going is ready to go. I.e. doorways cleared, 20% fresh saltwater up to temp (with extra, just in case), extra buckets, pre-washed sand, multiple power strips etc. Drain old tank and put livestock in labeled buckets and separated appropriately. In my experience, I've had more fish die than corals in moving because of stress. So, I'd catch the fish last and it's easier to net them with there is 6 inch of water left. The sand is a pain because it is full of detritus. I've always replaced at least 50% of the sand and kept some of the top layer for the bacteria. Then thrown the rest in another bucket with water to sift for inverts after I re-setup the tank. Transport tank to new location. Setup tank, put pre-washed sand in, add a little old sand, put the rock in with coral and lastly, add the fish. I bet you could do the move in two-four hours. If you need any help, let me know. I am close enough to Salem that it wouldn't be an issue.

    What happened to the July POTM?

    Ha! I'd like to use the excuse "There isn't internet where I am traveling." Although, I guess I am looking at this. I'll get on it later today, since I am on my phone. I am greatly sorry.

    The Reef Room Has Started... sort of...

    Nothing good in this hobby happens quickly. Two years of hardcore planning and back-braking decisions.

    Triton Water Test Results

    I'm not sure on the price, but I wonder if this is comparable: http://mass-spec.science.oregonstate.edu/content/services I am certain it would give you the same results. They could probably even do amino acid concentration in saltwater. I know they already do it in drinking water.
