  1. I did a stupid. Ich?

    Bevo5 did a great outline to cure ich 100%. If your fox face is coated with ich, then it's gills are probably also filled with ich. You can dip it in 65-75ppm of hydrogen peroxide with tank water for 30min (about 1ml of 3% H2O2 to 1 pint of tank water). This will remove a lot of ich and help it breath easier. If your tank only shows small signs of ich and not full outbreak, you can wait to see if your fishes can build immunity before it becomes an outbreak. Small signs mean only 1 or 2 fishes have a couple ich spots showing and scratch on sandbed/rocks from time to time. If this is the case and assume water quality is good and no bullying stress, you can try increase moonlight at night so your tank is never completely dark. Ich tends to attach to fish at night when they are "sleeping" in the same spot. With enough light, your fish will swim around all night (still not as active as day time). This in theory will make it harder for ich to attach and less stress for fishes as they are not fighting for sleeping spots. Over time (3+ months), fishes will buildup immunity to ich or not enough ich attach to fish to break the cycle. Again, this will not work if fish is heavily infected or a start of an ich outbreak.

  4. Can't raise magnesium

    Just to rule out the reflectometer, how much salt per gal of water did you use? With Instant ocean, it's roughly 1 cup for 2 gal. I would imagine other salt brands would be similar. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  5. Can't raise magnesium

    Curious what could be coming out of the RO unit that causes Ca, ALK, and Mg to precipitate out so much? Have you try making some from regular tap water to see if Ca, ALK, and Mg are consistently low? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  6. ReeFi LED info

    Yes, I'm working on moving production out of my garage and redesigning the looks. Will have more details soon.

  13. ReeFi LED info

    ReeFi LED firmware V1.54 released. Increased LED dimming frequency by 10x. This should reduce flickering effect when taking pictures and video. http://www.reefi-lab.com/index.php/reefi-news/
  14. I love seahorses

    I been bitten by the seahorse bug but haven't jump in yet. Do you guys use seahorse baby sitters if you're away for 2-4 weeks at a time? Or do you add thousands of live amphipods?
