Moved tank to new house. Went pretty smooth. Apex bar is not working and kessil light is having issues. I'm working to get those things fixed. Lost at least one coral and the shrimp.
Added a cleaning crew and a couple corals from the LFS. PH has been a little low. I will keep an eye on it.
still getting mixed results for phosphate tests. Going to order a new test kit. Temp seems to be stabilizing after I raised the thermostats in the tank a couple of degrees.

I'm getting mixed readings from different phosphate kits. Going to start cleaning the sand again, see what happens.

Added a Dottyback fish, some corals and inverts. Going to have to target feed the Orange Sun Coral daily, we will have to see how that goes.

My PH has been higher. Now it's above 8 most of the time I check it. In the last week it's ranged from 7.96 to 8.13.
Tank is pretty much running itself. Once a week I do a water change with some light cleaning takes about 30 min. My 15 gallon water changes are probably closer to 20 so I changed the reminder.

PH is back up. I'm pretty sure it was the fireplace. Will keep eye on it. The phosphates were high Sunday. We took some old shells out and did a water change it was lower today. It's at .25 now. We will also keep an eye on that.

Back from vacation tank was fine. PH dropped to 7.51 today. We put kalk in the reserve tank. The fireplace was on for most of the day. I'm thinking that has lowered the PH.

Water foggy this morning, not sure why? Doing extra water change. Perfect timing about to go out of town for 3 weeks. Will probably do another water change and hope for the best.
We are starting to see some phosphates. Going to cut the feedings to once a day.
