    Hi Been monitoring Alk and Cal over the past 3 days to confirm the numbers I calculated. Seems the the numbers were more testing errors :m29: reduced dosing to 50% of initial calc. Will test these again tonight. I also noted my 1 acro has been deteriorating. I suspect the filtration to be...

    Hi :m01: Been a while since I posted an update. Not much to report. Fish are fat an happy. Corals seem happy and encrusting. Nutrients still undetectable :confused1: Changed amino acids from AquaVitro Fuel to TLF Acropower. Will see if it makes a difference. Need to test my water with...

    Nutrients are non detectable. However, I dont think it is 0. Brown film algae grows on the glass. I use that as my indicator to manage how much food and ammino acids to dump in the tank. I am still running the maxspect and t5 units. Will have to transfer the radion once I have build the canopy...

    Thanks ReeferBray :m01: I am very excited for this tank. I still need to get a few frags. The scan, recordia and zoas will be moved to another tank. This will be an sps only tank. I still need to get some of the following: Milka Green thick branching birdsnest Pink birdsnest Pacman acropora...

    Not all good news though. 3 frags are showing some signs of distress. I have aggressively been dipping these and they seem stable, some improvement. Most of these corals came from my nano and were transferred during the nano crash. I am hopeful that they will recover. Did some...

    Coral ID

    Hi Synergy, Thanks for your thoughts on the corals :m01: I am no expert, but I dont think it's either. My acan is next to it. This frag is about the size of a R2 coin. The polyps are very small.

    Hi ReeferBray, Thanks for the kind words. I agree with your comment - sorry I am a bit lazy when it comes to explaining. I hoped that some balance would have been reached at this point. Taking into account, the number of fish, amount of food and amino acid dosing it does appear that that...

    Hi all :m38: Been a bit crazy, but general update. Nutrients are still nowhere :confused1: there was a slight increase in PO4 this week but my skimmer was not skimming for a few days. Cheato has also increased significantly. Still dealing with some brown slime-ish algae. Still dosing around...

    Hi, The battle continues...... Currently feeding around 24 cubes of frozen food a week. I am not even sure how much flake food and pellets I have dumped in the tank over the last week. Just can not get a proper NO3 and PO4 reading. Yes, there is some nuisance algae, but nothing to be...

    Hi, General update for now. Been a bit crazy at work. Will be testing parameters tomorrow. However, did notice an uptake of calcium last week. I have also seen some good polyp extension over the last week. Feeding a lot of food at the moment - can see it in the skimmer filter socks. Full dark...

    General update Finally caught the wrasse today and moved him to the new tank. Also got the last snail out of the nano. Only have a clown and an anemone left in the nano. The anemone will be moved to a new small tank - per instruction of the significant other :lol: Plan to use some of the stuff...

    Moved everything except for the wrasse and a trochus snail :banghead: took out all my rocks and could not find the wrasse :confused1: Did just spot him swimming around in the nano after putting all the rock in again :lol:
