I have never done a saltwater tank but have recently started a Fluval Evo 5 Gal which just finished cycling.  My tank prior to moving back here from Wisconsin was a 46 bow that was an African cichlid tank. I just recently restarted it as well, but this is my first attempt at a reef tank. It's really tiny so will see how it turns out.  Looking forward to learning!

I test my alk a few times a week and have it at 8.1 or 8.2 pretty consistently. I have mostly zoas and LPS with a few SPS ... I dose half strength kalk in the ATO and things have been pretty stable. I test calcium less frequently but it’s 420-450 usually. Salinity is 1.026

Cool.   Looks like you have a decent handle on things for a small system.  

I look forward to seeing it progress.
