    What are you using to blast rockwork?

    seriously though, I just grab my gyre off the side of the tank, turn in on full blast and wave it over the rocks.

    Best reef salt?

    Jason fox and randy Holmes Farley run (well, ran in the case of Randy) instant ocean. I was running it but I do believe they changed their formula a bit to have higher alk. Which if you have a mixed reef, topping off with high alk water change is fine to keep alk stale but if you have SPS or other more fragile pieces... Well, I don't think that regular scheduled alk swings are what people mean when they say stable alk.

    Best reef salt?

    this is how much your salt mix matter..... 0.01% If I were you I would buy two 200 gallon boxes of instant ocean. when they arrive, open them all up and mix them togther then put in gallon zip locks or whatever. instant ocean is great salt it can just vary a little from batch to batch in terms of cal and alk. Buying two boxes will even your results out in terms of elements. $50 per box and amazon delivers to your door... so $100 equals 360 gallons of mix / 5 gallons a week that is over a year of salt! ok, maybe just one box. (god I wish I had a small tank, a box lasts me like a month) you need 2 5 gallon buckets. mix the salt and drop a $10 amazon heater in it. next day use a sand vac and empty the water into a 5 gallon bucket. when your done just dump the new water in. tadah...clean sand and happy fish. the key is just measuring exactly how much salt you need...and put a marker line on your 5 gallon for water volume reference.

    Yeah for me. Always on the quest to constantly be fiddling (and I am dosing 280ml a day alk) I picked up a reef octopus calcium reactor from cuttlefish. Big shout as usual for Jeff hooking me up. Now I only need another $700-$800 to get the stuff to make it a pro level reactor. And it fits neatly under my work bench. This is simply more proof that as everyone knows, the tank is the most expensive part of an aquarium. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
