Thanks!Your welcome man. Feel free to post any questions you have.
Then this system was running, I would change out about 7-8 gallons a week. The system volume was about 65 gallons so its about 12%. Always used RO/DI water w/ tropic marin pro reef salt. Mix in a 14gal tote for 24 hours and its ready.Thanks!
how often do you do water changes? And what amount do you do - 25%?
Also what kind of water are you using? I am getting ready to invest in a ro/di maker for my house & just have two trash cans full brewing at all times - but after going over budget about $600 bucks on the tank build itself - i am still saving for that... so for time being i am getting water from outsourcing, curating myself and then introducing - i have honestly come to be very very good at maintaining my water & having all my levels normal w/ no spikes as of yet. I have been doing a water change once every 3 weeks @ 25% myself.
Thanks for your time!
I think I saved the link for this one, I'll have to checkGood to know! Thanks school! If you happen to find that thread from Geoff, post it up or PM me the link!
I have always ran Ca around 380-390, and Alk holds around 8, since Geoff had a talking to me. I like it becouse it dose not seem to have any affect on growth rates, and it saves money. not to mention the benefits of not having to clean up Calcium deposits.Geoff has a strong opinion on this and I wish I could show you the thread about salts and elevated levels. Companies boost the CAL to try and help boost coral growth. I think I am on par with Rustl and going for the 400 range (380-420) on CAL and 8 for ALK. MAG I am shooting for 1200-1400. Still can't seem to get that stable though.
Remember Daniel, people running bio-pellets need a lower ALK as experience is showing burnt tips of SPS with a high ALK while running bio-pellets.
