    Nice units although they are now getting pricey.

    Is that a flat plastic box you used to house the equipment and plugs?

    The last time I had my cables sorted out that neatly, it was only for a week. :(
    Had to take out one faulty piece of equipment and mess up all my neat cables.

    Flu update - took out matrix , put in carbon and phosguard.
    Nitrates still ,58
    Phosphates shot up to ,77
    Did 2 x 25% water changes in two days , didn't seem to help.
    Although most of tank is looking good.
    Just going to leave everything now for two weeks see what happens.

    Started monitoring ph/kh C/mg/ . Put in a doser and dosing kh/C .
    More difficult corals still battling a bit .
    Nitrates and phosphates very low at the moment , np pellets seem to work well , or maybe just in combo with the cubes.
    Hung my lights , now just awaiting new 1,6m tank . 14 more sleeps.

    That's definitely Bryopsis, not hair algae. Thanks @Tafelsout, 197 pages on that thread :y13:. Will try have a read of some of it over the weekend.
