    Few high end equipment for sale

    Too bad you are not selling the N18. I understand it is better to have a algae reactor slightly smaller than needed, rather than slightly larger.
  2. Interested in Ruby 30 sump if still available.

    Algae everywhere

    I am starting to attach the dino without using a black out. First step of filtering the water through a filter sock did not work very well. Obviously I will need a much finer sock because 80% of the crap went right through. Starting the 2 week H2O2 regimen.

    What is this greenish brown stuff? Grows very fast, and has attached to new frags within two days. How do I get rid of it? Sorry about the photo. I misplaced the filter gel I had.

    I have a bag of Kaldnes media. Should work well. Google it and see if that can work for you.

    May Meeting May 12

    Oh no, I will be away fishing (catch and release of course).
  10. I went blank today at the meeting.  The phosphate test system is Hanna Phosphate Checker, a manufacturer that is often recommended by on-line retailers.

    Getting back into the game after 20(ish) years

    I can relate. My hiatus was 30 years. Another break like that and I will be dead.
  12. I plan to go somewhere next year and need some advise. I have only done one dive trip since my recent immersion into reefing. Grand Cayman was beautiful, but the visibility was only about 50 feet (recent stormy weather) and dull staghorn and brains were about the only hard corals. Yeah, also fire corals galore. Tons of sponges. Now wondering where to dive to see acropora, blastomussa, acan, favites, goniapora, etc. In other words, I want to see WorldWideCoral.com live, in person. Thinking seriously about Palau. Already been to Coral Sea, Borneo, Fiji, Truk in past years. I will post this also in R2R but would put more stock in advise from PNWMAS.

    Can't lower nitrate

    I am not ready to apply @albertareef's chemical treatment yet, but I suggest you PM him directly. Good luck Oregonic.

    Can't lower nitrate

    Good information from all of you. I'll be considering sand bed change or complete removal. Cleaning with tons of turbulance of the back chambers of my AIO after three years could also help. Interestingly, I have a second 30 gallon tank that receives about the same amount of food. It only has a HOB filter and a HOB skimmer, but the nitrates are nearly undetectable.
