Confirming that I am brain dead. Confirming, also, that I studied philosophy (which is something people do, I swear.) Pretty sure the above is correlation, not causation...

It is my understanding that the glass is too thick on this tank for an MP10.

I don't have my heart set on the programmability, but I do want less equipment clutter in the tank.

Salty Shrimp GH/KH+, which I am led to believe is one of the "cleanest" remineralizers out there.

Remineralized to about 200 TDS and 2.5 kh/5 GH, which is about what I want.

Got them setup @ ~ 7.4 PH, 5 GH 3 KH, 68.5 degrees F, TDS ~ 250.

That about right?
