    Hello new reefer here. Just getting my tank cycling and got a few questions for the mean time. Im using bio spira and table shrimp for cycling my tank and it just got past the ammonia peak so most of the cycle is in the nitrite and starting to get a little reading on the nitrate. So when should...

    been dosing nopox for about 3 weeks, all was well and nitrate was dropping fast according to the recommended dosage on bottle (no3>10ppm/3ml per 25 gal) took my nitrate from high 80's down to 10, lost a chalice, although there seems to be no signs of algae or cyano forming on skeleton so i...
  3. General Reef Discussion
    was reading on some threads about carbon dosing and nitrate control and came across a tip that when carbon dosing sometimes corals can have rapid tissue necrosis from bad bacteria that fuel and bloom off of the carbon source as much as the beneficial bacteria that we try to increase/skim out...

    Currently looking into lighting and other necessities for my tank. I'm considering the Current USA Orbit Marine Aquarium LED Light. Has anyone had any experience with it? Good or bad? I've also got some other items in my Amazon cart that I wanted opinions on before I purchased them. Whether or...

    Guys I've been reading so much lately and since I'm a beginner I have no experience myself with running carbon. The guy in the aquarium store told me I can keep running it but online many people say it removes trace elements and bleaches corals. I found an article that basically explains that...

    I'm running the maxcap 180 2:1 with a booster pump to 70 psi at the membrane. The TDS of my tap is really low ~ 15. I must have higher suspended solids because my sediment filters clog up pretty quick, less than about 500 gallons or so. My tap has about 1.5ppm chloramine. My carbons were...

    So, I started vodka dosing to remove really, really high nitrate. I started at >64ppm nitrate, and loosely followed the charts. By the time I hit 15ml/day (90G/400L) tank, I was down to 0.5 - took about 2.5-3 months. The only 2 negatives in my tank is (1) that I also started with really high...

    So I've been running a pretty low-tech 20g long tank for almost two years now. I've had quite a bit of success in finding a low-maintenance tank with corals that are attractive and growing, and just a couple of fish. As some of you may remember, I recently took over the 280g (I think...

    added a brand new half unit of chemi pure elite to around 25g volume (rated for 30gal). skimmer is making bubbles as usual but no foam collecting, kinda just dissipating as soda fizz would. is this normal because of the fresh carbon? i also added a brand new poly filter pad, the chemical remover...
  15. General Reef Discussion
    Hey Everyone! I've had everything up and running for just about 3 monts now, I want to add more inhabitants to my tank, specifically LPS. Since I'm running a 20 gal, and can't get a sump, I'd like to look into possible improvements I could start making to my tank in order to get ready to really...
  16. Dosing and reactor equipment
    Hey guys.. Piecing all of my equipment together as my QT tanks begins to cycle and was wondering if anyone had any info on the Nextreef MR1 reactor. I am looking at possibly getting 2 of them 1 for GFO and the other for Carbon. I want to take all necessary precautions for algae and phosphate...
  17. General Reef Discussion
    Hi my tank has been running for about two months with just two aqua clear 70 power filters and i was wondering if it would be a good idea to get the BRS Carbon Reactor and run ROX in it or spend more money and get a protein skimmer?
