  5. Can't raise magnesium

    I've tried DIY refractometer calibration fluid from below link. Instead of using measuring cups, I purchased a digital kitchen weight accurate to 0.01g but max at 500g (~1lb). Seems to work very well. http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2006-12/rhf/index.php#18 In case anyone is interested in the digital weight scale: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01B4KX6JQ

  12. New Alk Monitor Joins The Fray

    That kinda reminds me of DIY bartender my friend built. 4 tests of alk per days would be interesting to see how alk are depleted. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk

  15. 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.
