View Full Version : Attention: Optimum Levels

I think it would be a good idea to have sort of a thread for optimum levels, ph, alk, temp, nitrates, nitrites, and so on, I would post all of them, except I don''t want to mess up on them and look like an idiot, do I'm leaving it upon you other members.

a lot of "optimum" parameters like temp and salinity are going to vary depend on your tank inhabitants. Some animals like it colder or warmer based on where they came from. I will post more on the other parameters which should be constant.
