    Hi

    I'm back to my obsession, since I dumped my Buyo a few months ago and upgraded to Red Sea... it has been a dream to manage since then, only regret I have is that I should have gone bigger

    Probably overstocked
    2 Percula clowns
    2 Firefish
    1 Banggai
    2 Damsels
    1 Dottyback
    1 Red scooter dragonet

    No issues with aggression (enough hiding spots I think) and control nitrates with a hang-on reactor and NP Biopellets

    Thanks

    I use Reef Octopus Mutli Media Reactor - Beginner, its really small (about 5cm wide by 20cm high) and hangs on the back, it is a bit tricky to connect. I saw a difference in Nitrates and Phosphates within days. I use NP Biopellets in the reactor, about 60ml, I wouldn't suggest that you overdo it.

    I also have quite a bit of live rock (about 20kg) and added about two bags of live sand in addition to the that provided in the sarter kit, which I am convinced has made a difference.

    I change water at about 10-15% weekly, check parameters about 2 days after changes and generally on add Red Sea Reef Foundation ABC+. I do find that I have to top up every 2 days, evaporation is higher that the Buyo was, but maintenance has been much easier.

    Apart from this I add Seachem Stability with every water change
