    Feeling defeated

    Man I'm right there with you feeling defeated. I have been fighting my tank trying to keep sps since last June. I had a lot of sps colonies that were growing good and then when we had the first heat wave last year the AC in my house was broke and I tried everything to keep my tank cool (aside from buying a chiller I know I should have). But I lost about $500-800 in SPS, since then I haven't been able to keep any sps and seems like my parameters are always fluctuating. Then this last week I left for vacation and came back to 5 fish missing and 3 sps bleached all parameters seems find still not sure what happened.. and very very tempted to take down my 180 gallon tank and turn it into a fresh water community tank and just have a 40gallon reef set up

    Hey just curious as to what everyone runs for phosphate control, I currently run a small refugium and some rowa phos, but am wanting to try something cheaper, any ideas? Currently my phosphates are at .3ppm and im thinking thats a little high. i dont feed often so another thing i have thought about is vodka dosing to up the nitrates. any advise would be great.

  21. Looking for some cheaper frags of LPS, SPS and zoas hopefully in like the 5-10 range or can possibly trade for some. Right now the main thing I have to trade (due to a tank crash that im finally recovering from) is Duncan coral, I have a colony of around 150+ heads that I can frag (usually I sell it for about $8/head unless buying many heads). Let me know what you have and what you want for it. Im really looking for some more torch corals also.
