I stoped in pet smart saturday while out shopping and found some Kent Tech CB for only $3.99 per bottle. It's usually $10.99. I dont use it anymore ( I now use liquid reactor) but at that price I could not pass it up. There was still a few bottles left. Thought I'd let ya know incase anyone uses...
okay, i've been reading a bunch of posts explaining on why snowstorms happen :) and i understand what is happening.
however, i do not understand why i'm getting one while i try to boost Ca/Mg/ALK levels of freshly mixed IO.
this is what i'm doing;
- mix IO salt in old IO bucket filled with...
I've gone with Kent's Tech CB. It says on the label "Now Stronger 56,000 ppm on part A, and Now Stronger 7840 dKH on part B. The instructions state to use no more than 1/2 ml per gallon per 12 hours. As instructed I dose just that, when I leave for work at 6 am, and before dinner at 6pm...
I have a 75 SPS/LPS 30g sump. 100lbs LR
I really don't have many corals maybe 8 LPS and 8 SPS "frags"
I'm getting a few more SPS this week end. Heres my problem...
I WC 5g/week IO
But I sill have to dose the heck with CA/Alk.
I'm dosing every other day 30ml CA and 20ml Alk. (Kent Tech CB...
I've been looking at what the optimum levels of calcium, magnesium & alkalinity are (after being advised that 1440ppm mg is a little too high) and have found the books say 420-500ppm (ca), 1200-1300ppm (mg) & 8-12dkh.
I understand that if any of these levels were too high it...
about a month ago I got my 1st SPS corals (other than some monti) and there doing GREAT!!!! I can see growth on all of them already. My problem is the Birdsnest, it has looked good untill a few days ago it has actually grown the most of all the corals abour 1/2" on all tips in a month. most of...
I am new to reef keeping and was wondering what additives I should add to my tank and brand. I currently add seachems, calcium and iodine. Should I be using something else or is this sufficient. I have seen Ken Marines Parts A and B is that worth adding.
I recenly began dosing Kent Tech CB. and Iodine. The directions say to pour in a high flow area so I'm putting it right in the overflow. Will the skimmer take any if it out?
Also does anyone have the site that has all the dosing calculators?
I'm changing 10 gallons of water a week on my 65 softie tank. So I don't feel the need to put many additives in the tank. I add Kent Tech CB Calcium Part A&B each day and that's it.
Is that enough? I have mostly mushroom, a large frogspawn and a gonipora.
I just checked the levels of my 180 gallon sps tank.
Total volume = 220 gallons
Mg = 1410 ppm
Ca = 420 ppm
Alk = 2.51 Meq/L
pH = 8.2
Question, the alk keeps dropping lower in relation to my calcium. I am running a calcium reactor to try and deliver equal parts to maintain levels and...
I just did a level check of my 180 sps tank. Readings were:
Mg 1440 was 1350
My question is why did my Mg level go up? I haven't done a water change. I did not dose any Mg. I did dose some Kent Tech CB part A and B about a week ago to raise my Ca and Alk levels...
I came home this morning after being gone since friday evening to a tank of dying corals. I have 2 different frogspawns in my 75 and one in a 10 gal and they have all basicly died. Also my hammer and a couple other things arent looking to good. Other corals and my rbta are closed up. Do have...
Well, my tank has undergone some changes since I last posted pics. I also picked up some new corals yesterday. A nice 2" gold Maxima clam and pink table acro from Jerry and also a bunch of zoo's from him and Scott(carman).
The whole shot. I have most everything that I could move on the bottom...
I'm off to Maui next week and have been trying to get a good dosing regimine down for my brother to follow while i'm gone. I just can't figure out how to get it stable. Here is whats happened this week so far, all these levels were tested in the morning:
Saturday - alk: 8dKH calcium: 420ppm...
I have a problem with this hair algae that is growing on all surfaces and especially on the base rock where there is high current. I thought the stuff would grow were there was a lack of current.
The tank is 3 months old and the water parameters are great.
