So i was going through my thread trying to find my post about my water filters and I think i need to provide a ton of various updates.
The axis of paly's war has somewhat spread, it has combined forces with GSP.... which totally sucks. orange sponge experiment failed, its just too slow.
my turf scrubber is still working too well, nitrates hover at 5 while overfeeding. phosphates i cant get under 0.22, but nothing seems to be complaining too much.
skimmer-neck cleaner worked for quite a while, but seems to bind more often now. I need to figure out a bearing system for it between the cap and rod.
the bristleworm trap works too well, i rarely use it until i see more than 5-10 out at first glance
no fish deaths this past year *knock on wood* the maroon clown is a hog, the rest look healthy AF.
the corals i have are waaaaaay overgrown in both DT and frag tank, i need to find time to take picts and post
cleaner shrimp is gone (or hiding), peppermints are still in there... probably 8-10?
asterina's are back in full force, Harlequin's require more consistent husbandry and are gone, ugh.
i've amassed a 5gal bucket of spent DI resin. I plan on taking the DI recharge thing and supersizing it with https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BQKUAC (i got a steal on it)
it took 16mo until my Alk started dropping from my CARX, finally changed it out. I used 100% reborn that batch. I had issues all year tweaking the CARX ph trigger value lower and lower and lower.... was all over the place. replaced with cleaned up leftover, which included neomag that was still not spent (was about 30%), 20% coarse ARM, 50% reborn. and raised initial ph trigger. im hoping this gives me a bit more stability.
i have 3 spare UV bulbs by using keepa's alerts on amazon warehouse deals at avg $10 each
3-d printed overflow on frag tank is still working very well *knock on wood*
i've started using z-wave water sensors everywhere in the house (sinks, washer machine.. and under all tanks)
i put my spare apex on my office tank, w/ a cheaper pH probe from ebay. 1st probe fails in 2 weeks, second probe is at a year
someone still has my blue laser *lol* (going through inbox)
im sure i missed more, my head hurts after trying to remember this much so far
