I know these are pretty easy to find on the web, but thought I could include them here for easy access to anyone <!-- s:thumbleft: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_thumleft.gif" alt=":thumbleft:" title="thumbleft" /><!-- s:thumbleft: -->

These below parameters I've gotten from a Marine Scientist (Chris Brightwell) and includes everything from the simple (pH, temp etc) to the complex (Magnesium, Iron etc). I haven't been bothered to work out conductivity, which can be worked out from temperature and salinity, but I think specific gravity and salinity would be enough! <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->
    pH: 8.1-8.4 Temp: 22-25°C Specific Gravity: 1.021-1.026 Salinity: 27.9-34.5ppt Alkalinity: 125-180ppm Carbon Dioxide: 5-8ppm Calcium: 412-450ppm Magnesium: 1288-1320ppm Strontium: 8-10ppm Iron: 0.1-0.3ppm Iodine: 0.05-0.08ppm Phosphates: <0.05ppm (Preferably zero) Silicate: <0.05ppm (Preferably zero) Ammonia: 0ppm Nitrite: 0ppm Nitrate: <10ppm[/list:u] Cheers BR
