Yeah but why it got to that level is beyond me. For me it makes stock fluctuations based on speculation and panic of buyers seem sane compared to this.
They both jumped....and yes I have my tank covered. Just need to be more careful when I slide the the screen covers around. I probably had them 6-9 mos. And i still have my Linneatus...I meant to say Laboutei.How long did you have lineatus and rhomboid before their passing?
I don’t think magnets have aluminum in them.I received my ICP-OES test results back. Of the major elements, only Flourine was low. And, Iodine was the only trace element that was low. We'll see if Red Sea Colors dosing can fix some of this. NO3, PO4, Alk, Ca, were similar to my test kit readings.
Interestingly, Aluminum is almost 0.1ppm...ouch! This could be from a couple of small magnets that were in the tank that I pulled out a couple weeks ago. I know that some of the salt mixes have had aluminum in the past. Does anyone know if Fritz RPM has any aluminum in it?
Ahh....good point. Forgot that I have those in my tank. I suppose its possible that they are leaching aluminum...but since they're made from aluminum oxide, probably won't leach.Do you have any marine pure? I have aluminum is 0.10 and natural sea water is 0.08. I don't think it's that bad actually.

Sure, but it's presumably a soluble ion if it is in the water sample. Al2O3...not very soluble.It’s well-known that tanks with MarinePure often also show elevated levels of Aluminum on ICP testing. The significance of this is unknown and hotly disputed. If you want to see a lot of arguing, google it.
My take-away is that it is most likely detecting non-reactive forms of bound aluminum, with little if any of the reactive forms that can be toxic. Since the ICP technique breaks down everything to component atoms, you can’t tell what form they were in in your tank.
