i've been away a long time. busy with work and we have had problems with family sister not letting me use the internet, grannies cancer and now mrsa aswell and a couple of close relatives with demensia. on top of that i work night shift but i've bought a net book and have more net access now.

with a lack of time i have been using salt and ro water. i have no time to go to the beach. but i found that the tank was running better with natural sea water.

to be honest in a small tank like mine mixing water is very cheap to buy water and salt for anyway.

obviously amonia and nitrate at 0, nitrate as low as posible below 5 preferably.
ph 8 or slightly above
salinaty 1.026
phosphate as low as possible
calcium 400 or a bit above (only important for corals)
magnesium (honestly i can't remember)

there's more but i can't remember (i've been drinking dark rum all night)
