IM Nuvo 30L build

Tank coming along nicely. Picked up a few SPS and will continue to keep an eye on my parameters.

So far tank has been stable with the following.

Calcium - 465
Alkalinity - 8.5
Magnesium - 1375

My nitrates are testing 0 with api kit so need to pick up a better kit. I also need a phosphate kit

Tank is doing great so far. One of my birds nest started to get white at the base. All parameters are fine. I did notice my MP10 had lost all its settings so it was running at lowest speed and I think it was in lagoon mode. Not sure if the reduced flow caused it.

I may end up cutting it up so that I don’t lose the whole piece. Monitoring it for now.

Tank finally bouncing back after my nutrient spike.

Over 100 nitrate eliminated most of my sps. The others are slowly bouncing back.
