  1. Dosing and reactor equipment
    My Ca reactor is hooked up with a pinpoint ph monitor. Everything is stable except I need to frequently add supplement to the Ca. and occasionally alk too. I can't increase the bubbles anymore or the media starts to melt. (I'm using the large schuran (sp?) type media). Anyway, I was thinking...

  3. Nano Reefs I dunno. The tank was over a year old in that issue, but of course they never say if things are still running or if they were taken down/IF they were taken down WHY it was(moving, got bored with something so small, roommate dumping stuff in...

    With money a lil tight and a seahorse tank in the works I'm putting the CA reactor on the back burrner (for now). I'm thinking about dosing Kalk. What is the best / safest mothod?

    Ok this rainbow monti is looking kinda rough, though not as bad as pictured... It was looking better before I switched to BB. Its a bit more colored up since but not by much, and has very weak PE. Water is perfect, w/cs every week, and kalk drip for top off, and all other SPS are happy. I...

    well I'm about out of 2 part and have been considering if I want to buy more or drip Kalk - yesterday I was told by an LFS owner that kalk doesn't replace 2 part as they are 2 different things. That I would need to use both and that a lot of reefers mistakenly only used one or the other. are...

    So, since I re-setup my aquarium everything is looking great and has colored up nicely. However, after the hair algae outbreak from the past, I no longer have any coraline algae. So, I wanted to see if any of you who have so much of the stuff that you're constantly having to scrape it off your...

    Using my own inline RO/DI water supply. If have algae means have phosphates, then how do most you pro's eliminate phosphates? Water changes to bring out algae on glass faster after each glass cleaning. Have calc reactor, skimmer, etc... What is the secret to eliminating phosphates?

    Why are Acropora so dang much. My LFS is charging like 40-60 dollars:angry: for 1-2" frag!! I'm new to reef keeping so maybe this is why i'm shocked of the cost. I can buy LPS, Softies, inverts and fish all day long but the acropora's are all so much. Why???? lol

    Is it necessary to do both of these things and do they complement each other or act against one another?? Why would one do both? as i continue to stock my new 180 I plan on dosing homemade 2-part to maintain cal, alk...but I see where some people also still dose Kalk along with the 2 part...can...

    Morning everyone. Couldn't sleep so decided to start off the day until the Ambien kicks in. Not much going on today but taking Cynthia to work for a half day and staining the porch furniture. It is redwood and probably 20 years old, but looks okay after the sanding and pressure washing last...

    OK I know some of you thought it was sacrilege that I tore my 450-gallon system down. Numerous issues compiled and aided in the decision. First off was the system itself. I think anyone who builds their first dream system will tell you that a lot more thought went into building it than...
