Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate < 5 ppm, Phosphate <.10 ppm, dKH 8-9.5, CA 420-450 ppm, MG 1350-1400 ppm, Salinity 1.025-1.026 and Temp at 78-80 degrees.
Recommended Lighting Conditions
At Your Reef Aquarium we run a variety of Metal Halide, T-5 and LED fixtures over our Aquariums and prefer to use 20K Metal Halides for farming purposes. Most full spectrum lights that provide PAR Levels of 250 or above at water level are adequate for the majority of corals, however for SPS we recommend PAR Levels at 500 or above at water level. To ensure you are getting the best color out of your corals we recommend a bulb color temperature of 14K or above. We prefer a color temperature of 20K on our systems. If you’re running LED Lighting on an SPS tank be sure to use one of the full spectrum light fixtures.
