    Sometimes you forget to check Alk for two weeks

    It's called Aquarium Logger. It's super basic and I'm sure there are better ones, but I only need to record alk so I don't need anything fancy. You can record all kinds of parameters and graph trends if you're in to that kind of thing. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Tricolor spa from Higher Thinking

    Looking good y'all! Yeah that piece gets real green is the light isn't too bright. Glad to see it's taking off! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. I've honestly been checking alkalinity less and less lately. Didn't really notice I'd gone two weeks without checking it. 180gal full of SPS colonies. I was a bit nervous when I realized it'd been so long, but the tank has been relatively stable lately. Turns out it dropped 1 kH. I think mostly because my reactor is using up media and I don't have a controller. I just run it 24/7 with a constant bubble rate. As media is used up, I feel like the reactor's output goes down. Whenever I refill, I always notice a little climb in alk. Anyway, just glad to see it in an acceptable range. Worst case scenario I just create more skeletons to feed the reactor [emoji6][emoji6] Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Problems with tapatalk?

    Yeah I missed it. I'm pouring an addition to my driveway on Saturday so this weekend was all excavating and graveling. Ugh.... Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Problems with tapatalk?

    Thanks man. I usually just disappear when Tapatalk fails. Too lazy to login any other way. Hopefully they'll stay compatible.... especially because I dropped $15 to get rid of the ads. [emoji857][emoji857][emoji857][emoji389][emoji389][emoji389] Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Anubias Coffeefolia and Nana for sale.

    Oh, what the heck!? I totally thought I posted this on the Planted Tank forum. Guess I'm not as technically inclined as I thought. At any rate, still let me know if you're interested! [emoji3][emoji3] Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. I am doing a major removal of Anubias from my tank. 5 bucks for smaller plants (6-8 leaves), 10 bucks for larger specimens. I also have a bunch of Dwarf Sagittaria. 2 plants for $1. I can ship Monday. $6 shipping. $25 minimum, please (including shipping costs). PM for quickest response. I guarantee you that you'll get much more than you paid for. Here's a quick shot of my much too overgrown jungle. Idk even know how the fish get any exercise. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    The Theat Is Real

    If it makes you feel any better, my tank hit 83 today.....and that's definitely not the hottest it's ever been. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Can rapid growth cause color fade?

    6 to 8 cubes per day?? That's wild... What size tank? I got a 180 with some big ole fish and I usually do 1 cube and some flake/pellet thrown in. I couldn't imagine dropping that quantity of food in. My wallet wouldn't want me to either [emoji16][emoji16] Any reason on why you're so set on alk at 12? If it's rapid growth you're after, I don't think you'll be too disappointed at a lower level. Probably wouldn't even notice it. You might even appreciate it more if corals grow slower because it's less maintenance. You should put up pictures of exactly what you're referencing just to make sure you are actually dealing with what people are assuming. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Whys my tank seems to be flushing?

    Sounds like you need to read up on different overflow styles. Research Herbie, Beeman Animal, and Durso. You need to figure out how you plan on running your overflow. How many pipes do you have going to your sump? That will determine your options. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Calcium Reactor Output

    I don't have any sources or science, but my knee jerk reaction would be no. The only thing I could consider, and it's one heck of a long shot, would be if for some reason your effluent off gasses the CO2 as it tumbles in the sock, thereby raising the pH and precipitating the calcium and alkalinity. Tbh, even writing that out sounds ridiculous. I'd say if the reactor is keeping your levels in check, I wouldn't give it another thought. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
