    Congrats

    Wow, nice to see such a lovely system on Bio cubes.

    Do you run the titanium or normal as I see u also running Rowaphos? Also how much do you top up with every 3 months?

    Truly inspirational.

    Hi @Hammerhead

    Thank you :), I don't run the titanium cubes only the Bio Cubes, I took the rowaphos off line now and I'm dosing sodium nitrate as my nitrates are really low. SPS are coloring up nicely and I've seen better polyp extension. I top up 500ml-1000ml every 3 months depending on the depletion of the cubes.

    Thanx man:thumbup: the battery is there for my 1000w pure sine wave inverter, back up system when the power fails. My return pump, skimmer, RO pump and air pump for the cubes are connected to it and will run without mains for 8 hours.
