      Is the information on this first two post still valid?


      Specifically, the water parameters in the 2nd post.

      Maybe I'm insane but being a noob at saltwater tanks, But I go to Scripps/Birch every week and get a 30 gal barrel. Got a 18v cordless ryobe water transfer pump and a hose specifically for this. drain and fill 30 gal of the 130 gal tank.
      Life is thriving for 6 months now. Corals have doubled and trippled in size. Fish and crustachions all loving life. I tested it every day at first, then weekly...with that 30 gal swap I feel I'm wasting my time testing it as it comes up almost perfectly every time. I havn't cleaned my filter ever. I don't want to mess with the balance of it all. Glass stays clean and the snails mop up the debris. What am I doing wrong that feels SO RIGHT. lol.

      Mother natures real good at mixing the water up right. Add a little magnesium for the coral we don't have here and give time for the temp on the barrel to match the tank..then swap em.

      Ran water parameter checks against the water from today's pickup. 1st time using this water so I did a full check minus mag.

      ammonia .25ppm
      nitrite 0ppm
      nitrate 0ppm
      phosphate .10ppm (eyeballed, not 0 but not .25 either)
      calcium 340
      alkalinity 7dkh
      mag - not tested
      salinity - 1.024
      PH 7.8

      I'm a bit hesitant to throw this into my tank even with a dosing system just due to the swing it might cause. i keep dkh around 9, calc at 420 and mag 1300+ with a salinity of 1.026 (sometimes dropping down or up .001).

      I started my tank off with scripps water, as I did not have the means to fill up my 80gal total system. Did not have any issues.

      Need help from the pros.

      Is Scripps water safe to do water changes with during this time (red tide bloom)??? I noticed there is clear film floating around the container and the water STINKS when I smell it....

      I have this exact same question. Couldn't find this answer anywhere else. Only noticed the smell and small particles once I started my water change earlier today.

      Most people are avoiding using it at the moment. There are a few different threads on the topic.
