  1. I spoke too soon...it's back to being a slo mo fo[emoji848] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  2. The 2 additional fish that I'll, hopefully, be getting are a powder blue and achilles. There's also, another I'd like to get but not sure if it'll keep its colors. Here it is... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  3. Gotcha... Totally understand now, thank you for the explanation!
  4. I am in the process of obtaining a couple more fishies in the upcoming week, but as Viper said, corals and algae are consuming much faster than what the fish can give back. Hopefully, with the new additions, next week, consumption will slow down. If not, I gotta dose.
  5. So, I should continue dosing till it doesn't drop as fast? Will that be the saturation point? What if the saturation point is at 50ppm, I surely don't want that. Maybe, I'm not quite understanding what you mean, but I kinda do, in a sense. Thanks for the input, Brian Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. You lost me at "Yeah..." haha I do need to read that article on the Redfield ratio, for sure. It's basically my comprehension of the article, I tend to wander, haha, then I lose interest...I'll give it a good read later today. Thanks for the input, Sean! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  7. Outstanding! Only difference with mine is that, my trates are gobbled up quite quickly and yours sticks around. Either way, I need to dose some phos. Glad, yours turned around and is now thriving! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  8. What the heck is consuming all the nitrates??!! On the 8th of this month, trates were undetectable. So, I dosed 80ml of trates. Next day, trates were at 25ppm, which was my goal. Fast forward 8 days, which is today, trates are back to undetectable. Wutdaphu...Yes, I know corals need to eat but dayum! Do they need to eat that much, lol. I was hoping trate levels would maintain for at least a month. I guess that means, I must dose, which I was trying to avoid... So be it Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. Sean The only thing I've noticed with undetectable phos is, some weird brown algae type, growing on plugs and the rock work. Not too bad but definitely noticeable. Also, I've been cleaning the glass more often, whereas before, I wasn't. So, I'm thinking there is some sort of balance between No3 and Po4, idk... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. Correct me if I am wrong, do nitrates and phosphate go hand in hand, so to speak? With No3 and no Po4, is that a bad thing and vice-versa? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks Lex... How do I go about using this stuff? Mixing ratio?
  12. Anyone dosing po4? I've been undetectable for several months maybe even longer. If you are dosing po4, what do you use? TIA Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks for the fix, ain't slow no mo! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
