    It's been a while haha Diatom blooming wildly right now! But it should subside. Got a few zoas and acans in the tank. Will clean and take some closeups this weekend. NOT ENJOYING THIS "UGLY PHASE" with the diatoms....

    [FS] Coral to swap, Durban

    Hey everyone. I'm looking to SWAP some frags and colonies of acans and zoas etc., for different flavoured acans, zoas or Euphyllia etc. Some have been with me for 6 months, and some are original colonies from my first tank way back in 2014. A couple have recently been fragged or split when...

    Advice - RO Unit

    The smaller units are fine, 50 gallon per day, or 150-200 litres. You prob want something with 4 or five stages. Coarse filter, fine filter, actvated carbon, membrane, and deionising resin.

    Constant algae problems.

    Your Phosphates may be undetectable because you havw so much algae taking up PO4 quickly from the water as it appears. Are you running phosphate remover and/or activated carbon?

    ATM agent green

    It's lanthanum chloride. Potent stuff like the guys said above. Start slow. It's recommended that you drip it into a 10um sock to catch the flocked out PO4, but I've seen guys run it into their skimmer too, or just into the first compartment in the sump. I've read online of guys losing fish...

    Thanks for all the comments guys. I've noticed the finer powder-like aragonite has been moved slowly out of the skimmer thanks to the wavemaker keeping it in suspension for the skimmer to get it. I've added two Ocelaris and some Zoas, green montipora, an acro, Acanthastrea spp., Micromussa...

    Almost 100% clean now. Just a bit bleak at how dusty the red sea sand is... I'll have to slowly remove the fine dust with my sand cleaner over the next few weeks. As soon as I stick my hand in the tank, it just goes murky again. Never had this problem with my previous tank. Oh Well, nothing I...

    The big reveal... 9pm 06:00 07:00 I'll update the progress today... Since the tank has been running for a few weeks already, I'm sure I'll be able to add fish and corals soon. Things are getting exciting!

    FYI, this was when my lights were about to shut off running all of the channels at most 15%. But it still give me a good idea of how the light spreads in the tank

    Soooo.... Some real progress..... Rock and sand are in! Finally! I added the rockwork I made a few weeks ago, and added 2L of my Red sea Fiji pink aragonite. I'm not too bleak about the water becoming dirty, and one benefit is that I can visually see the light attenuation from the surface...
