Yea these small tanks evaporate soo quickly I've been topping up 2L a day manually on mineIt was all I could afford at the time, cuz it was emergency because we were going on holiday and water evaporates really fast in the tank and didn't have time to organise a tank keeper.
Extremely stable. Paremeters rarely change. I'm actually struggling to get my calcium down because there's nothing in the tank that uses calcium fast enough. But because I use natural seawater and do weekly water changes parameters are extremely stable. The temperate fluctuates 0.5 degrees a day. It is about 26.0 at night and 26.5 at the hottest part of the day. But it's a steady change that happens everyday.How stable is this tank? And what are you dosing at the moment?
Yep. I made a big mistake at the start. Once I got the torch coral I overestimated how much calcium it actually uses and I didn't have a calcium test at the time so I was dosing Seachem Reef Complete. Got some money for a calcium test kit and found out the calcium was at 520. The natural seawater has a calcium level of 420 to 450 so with water changes I have very gradually been bringing it down.That's very good to hear do you check cal before and after the water change ?
Thanks! And unfortunately I don't have too many test kits. Basically just the essentials: Ammonia, Nitrate, Nitrite, Ph(pen), Alkalinity, Salinity and Calcium. Those are all the test kits I have. I could get a phosphate test done on the nsw at the LFS if you are curious.Great you learning very fast tell me do you do full test of the tank? And the NSW do you test the po4
