they are known to nip sps
Thats strange they look so inocent.
if he is hungry it is my fault.
Very true, I see that in my small 650 cube. One sick fish and all goes bad in 24 hours! That is one of the reasons I like how you keep your tank in tip top shape!
Interesting, never heard of someone dripping water changes
i drip waterchanges to keeo corals or anything from stressing.
I wonder if the shrimp think you are upside down?
mmm yup he just hangs around.
maybe he is australian
Did my waterchange on saturday as per usual. tested perameters. salinity 1.025, mg 1360,kh 8.9, cal 510! No calcium dosing in past week so it seems to be seachem salt is well endowed in cal dept! I have experienced the strangest thing. zoas closed up for few days and then when opened up all extreme greens or oranges ! I am wondering if this is due to carbon dosing? As of yesterday i have upped carbon from 1ml to 2 ml a day. i also dose microbelift special blend each week after water change. i am still experiencing growth of a little hair algae on a few spots i had before so iam not too concerned about overdosing carbon just yet. i am waiting for my test spses to colour up and then i may assume that carbon dosing level is right.
Watching with interest. Bought it, but to scared to use it.
Start with a half ml for a few weeks and watch for results
I have noticed this morning that with the increased carbon dose my skimmer is skimming much drier which is exciting. i am anticipating that i can feed my corals heavier and still have a low nutrient tank. i will just haveto get the balance right. feed the corals.... remove excesses through all the filtration.... Feeed the corals.......remove the excesses....
looking good and sounds even better. So you would definitely say that dosing carbon is helping? and special blend,what your opinion of that?. Want to start dosing special blend now. Getting rid of some softies and adding some sps next week.
I havent examined my water under a microscope so i am relying on hearsay to a certain extent. i dose microbelift after my weekly waterchange. i see that in my skimmer cup that with the carbon dosing has resulted in a much dryer skimmate ( i am up to 1.5 ml brightwells nitrate and phos remover twice a day as of the day before yesterday. i think that the microbelift is re colonising my water column with bacteria that have been removed by skimmer. ps this is a standard 438 boyu skimmer and it is working really well.
I am not adding or taking any livestock from my tank until i see how far i need to go to get my spses to colour up.
Dosed kh to pull it up slightly
I also have to do this for my sps what do you dose.
Aqua vitro 8.4
I got some brightwells 8.4, adding it to my ato. My kh was down to 6.
