    thanks all, Kalkwasser, extra iodene,Reefbooster,Reef Evolution Combisan, activated carbon by knop germany, silicarbon, and of course my vodka dose once per day.
    the tank started off with 30 kilos of uncured bali rock, took nearly 2 weeks to see the spike go through the roof, but it settled quickly, giving me close to 000s on all the tests.
    then the vodka doses started after 3 weeks, very minimal as lots has not been required..

    I love Aquariumshop Hopping!!!

    Last Weekend Ryan and me went Shop Hopping in the French Part of Switzerland.
    The French Swiss are dumm …. or we were very lucky!!!

    We got to a small shop with only saltwater fish, some corales and annemies.

    Ryan told me the evening before that he is looking for a Calcium Reaktor for his Tank. So we are in the shop and Ryan is doing some coral and annemie shoping and I see this Calcium Reaktor from Schuran for CHF 670. That is about R 4700. But the Pump is missing and a small piece of plastic is broken off.

    So I asked them how much they want for it. Long sorry …… We got the Calcium Reaktor for R 280!!!

    So I will fix and mode it a bit for Ryan and keep u posted! :tt2:
