When I went to aquarium village they did not have the 25$ doller test kit (the one with like 3-5 different test kit ) the only had ammonia ,nitrite and high range ph , they also told me I just need these 3 for now .but I'm have to get more test kits I need to no nitrate like you said Buck0land and starting this week I'm going to start testing every other day instead of once a week And in about 2-3 weeks I be setting up one LED kit ..

Just noticing that your water level looks a little high in your sump.
My concern is if the electric goes out the sump will overflow.
Perhaps you did a check already.

Hey thanks for the concern . But I do that on purpose because I don't have a ATO so I fill it alil more then I have to so I dont have to fill my sump every 2-3 days so I fill my 5 g bucket to top and only add more water roughly 4-5 days to the sump before the water level is really low I also fill it alil more then I have to because my skimme splashes water so the water level being high it does not splash a much as if I had it were it should be ..and that being said is the power does go out it would deft over flow it was about were the pic is if not alil inch taller in the pic when I stop the return pump to fix my sump

Get an ATO its deffinetly worth getting.. it helps with stability in your reef with a constant level of salinity and you dont have to over fill your sump... look into they are very easy to make and affordable..
