    Its time for our first meeting of 2017 folks!

    Where: Stone Aquatics - 6950 W Jefferson Ave #200, Lakewood, CO 80235
    When: Saturday January 28th
    Time: 1pm - 3pm


    Its that time again where we invade Stone Aquatics!

    Steve and crew officially have their ICP water testing in full operation and they are ready for us to give it a try! He will be doing full test for the insanely cheap price of $10. This price will be for the meeting only, so don't miss out! They will also have the usual huge inventory of livestock and hard goods as well.

    We look forward to seeing you all there and I personally can't wait to get my water tested!!

    Looking forward to this! I'll have to head over straight from work. Is it okay for my water sample to sit in a container all morning before being tested? What size water sample do we need?

    Mine will sit over night so I'm wondering the same thing.

    ICP tests for elements only not nitrates, ammonia etcetera so your water will be fine. 8-12ounces of water will be more than enough.

    What we need for ICP water testing:
    15-20 ml of clean water, no dirty water.
    It is pretty simple.

    The ICP picks up elements in the water, so all the trace elements you wonder if your corals are using will be tested for and you will know, plus you will be given results of ocean water from several regions around the world to compare your water quality to the ocean.

    When you say clean not dirty water. I'm confused what you consider dirty water. Tank water is what we want to test, you mean just avoid having like a bunch of particulates?

    How did everyone's water tests turn out? The results of my test showed Ca 636 ppm. I knew it was testing high with my red sea titration test, but had no idea it was that high.

    Oh, and sulfur 1045 ppm. Ocean water is 518..

    Calcium was the one I was wondering about. I've been doing Triton which shows I am always 50 higher than my Red Sea tests. However, this test is over 100 higher than my Red Sea test.

    All the the other ones were about in line with usual results from Triton (although I haven't compared every single one of the minor trace elements yet).

    Where did you get the ocean water results to compare?

    My ca in two tanks was higher than expected too. One tank was 660 and the other was 500.
