    Started circa end 2005 i think, measured Ca today, was low, at 300, and forgot to change my Phosphate media, hence the bit of cyano in the center

    sorry, first wanted to see if the pics came through:

    tank: 1.5m X 50cm wide X 70cm high (10mm braced glass)
    sump: 1.3m x 60cm high x 40cm wide
    2 skimmers, tons of liverock, sulphur nitrate reactor, phosguard, DSB with plenum, fugium in the sump.

    Nitrates always zero, even with heavy feeding, phosphates can creep up, depending on how often i change the phosguard.

    Ca always dips, coz i dont have space for a ca reactor, that really sucks

    but otherwise time has just been on my side i guess
