    Wait for money to buy the second MP40
    Yes 2 Snow White energysavers
    Reef Octo NW150
    Haelia 6540-2880l/hr

    Tried other Goldies but this one attacks them and then they die from stress
    Friends need to stay away from their house otherwise big buds
    Electric damsel chased his friend and caused him to fly...

    System is about 11months old, Have 2x150w Halites with 2 Actinic T5's in a reeftek unit.
    Parameters are in limits exept the Nitrates they are about 25-50
    What kind of stress?

    po4 is clear on the chart salinity is 1.025 never tested the others.
    Do about 140l every 2weeks.
    I feed him when he opens which is about every 3rd day
    I have a carbon reactor Reef octo and just waiting for my canister then I will rum Martix in there.

    Looks like the only way to see my pics is to go in the Image loader under my avatar.
    Can't figure out how to load them here??

    Click on your imae uploader in your profile, all your pics will show, there is a section that says img code under each pic, copy and paste that code to reply box.

    Always hit enter after pasting then your pics will load under each other

    you need to try and find the cause of the problem for it to be sustainable, addressing the problem with a cure and not knowing what the cause is, is just gonna cost you money in the long run.

    By all means add the matrix but dont forget to search for the cause of the problem.

    Good luck
