    SPS changes reveal chemistry imbalance

    I have read that NO3 s/b 100 times the phosphate. Your experience drives the point home strongly. Thanks for sharing and hopefully it will help me avoid certain problems.
  4. One of each please . . . . just as soon as the tank cycles. Oh yeah, I also must wait for the tank to arrive from the manufacturer, and installed and plumbed, and sand and rocks etc. I guess it will be a while. Sigh.

    I did some major electrical and other contracting to make my man cave "safe" for the reef. Changed out the wood flooring for ceramic tiles, and re-routed many electrical circuits and upgraded and moved the panels in the garage. Then I added a cut off to switch critical circuits over to a generator when the power goes off. This was one big step short of a whole house set up. This hobby is way more expensive than I expected. Yes, you all warned me, but I did not listen.

    Gee, if you can pull this off for less the 10K, I will be envious.

    any fishermen here

    Hmmm, 30 outings for one fish. Boy can I relate. That is why I am now an avid trout flyfisherman.

    Just curious since I am an imbecile with computers, and even forums. Why can you not receive messages? How does that work?

    Algae everywhere

    Update on the dino issue. The H2O2 knocked out the algae, but it came back a week later. Now dosing again. But I read that the likely cause in the first place was zero phosphates and nitrates. To address this, I have been dosing Brightwell Aquatics Neophos. The phosphate does go up, but drops down to zero overnight. Puzzling since there was no visible algae in the tank when I was using the Neophos.
