    Have you checked your new salt water for phosphates? I wouldn't worry too much if everything's looking the way you want. I mean, bring the phosphates down with gfo or something, but don't stress too much. Sounds like you're doing all the right things. Victoly would definitely be the one to ask about this, but maybe adding another carbon stage instead of another DI would be good.

    I think TDS is more like calcium, mag, salt, etc, things like that. That's how I understand it. It won't tell you phos or nitrate.

    How are things going in your DT these days?

    I second this. I have pvc going through mine but same idea. Over the years it's been really handy to easily slide whatever rock off to swap it with a new one or just clean it off or frag a coral or whatever. Plus nothing's shifted unexpectedly in 5 years.
  5. I was wondering if the tank lights would work! That's amazing. It would be great if it did the trick. This is nightmare material for me. Over here I have 4 little boys running around my in wall tank that's mostly exposed on 4 sides 😬
  6. I wouldn't know what to do either. Just wanted to say that really sucks. I'm glad you noticed it though. Any idea how they got there?
  7. It's really cool to see comparisons like that! Everything looks good. We need to see a fts!

    Sad, sad day! :'(

    Sorry about your fish ☹️ That was a long time to have him.

    That water change set up sounds amazing! I'm still pushing around brute cans and dealing with tubing 😂 My tank is doing great these days. I'm getting it back in to shape. I still have one of your Tonga branch rocks in my sump! Everything is looking really good! I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the stand finished and what you do with the canopy. What do you use the space underneath for, if anything?

    Wow! This thread hasn't seen any action in almost 7 years 😁 Kinda fun to be reminded of it. It's good to hear that a tank that deep is manageable!

    That looks great. It's coming along nicely!

    How's the tank doing these days? I'd love to see an update!
  14. I was reading one of the papers Timfish linked and found this: "It is heat-stable, not inactivated by boiling, and is stable in neutral aqueous solutions for prolonged periods, however a rapid decomposition occurs under acid or alkaline conditions, leading to loss of its toxicity"
  15. Can you take the duncans off and swap the rock out? That's a for sure way to be rid of them. If it's a rock you want to keep, what about letting it bake in the sun for a while?
