    When to add PO4 remover when cycling

    Just to add a update. After posting this I got really busy at work and with the holidays. So I did nothing outside of the normal 15% water change. Now 90% is gone and the last bit is brown and not looking to hot.

    When to add PO4 remover when cycling

    The normal GFO I have used the high capacity in the past and I wasn't a fan. I think its strips too much too fast
  9. Like then title says my 140 gallon tank with dry rock (beached) has been cycling for 2 months now. Im going into the ugly stage diatoms on the sand and gha on the top part of the rock. 3 fish no CC yet. Skimmer is running well and refuim is growing cheato and gha fast. All po4 reading are with a hanna . .1 was todays reading I figure the answer is to wait but i just need some reassureance from the vast knowledge base that is ARC.

    Dshel's Red Sea 650 Peninsula Build

    made a lot of progress over the last month. The tank is running and been cycling since 11/10. Below is my cycling schedule sort of.... Add dr tims one and only 11/10 Turn on refugium 8hrs Algae barn clean cheato Pods and half to display half refugium Add 1 to 2 fish 11/30 Frozen fish food and auto feeder lowest setting 1 per day Leave alone for 1 month ends on 12/10 Add coralline (maybe) Leave alone 1 month Some of the issues Ive run into 1) Lost a o ring to the skimmer so it has not been running at all, hopefull get it in this week. 2) the stock return on the red sea tank sucks so I had to replace that with a loc line one 3) Still have a lot of flow adjustments to make prior to coral ready

    Stand completed and tank on top. Still setting up some of the equipment as time allows and the stand lights are order and the tank lights. I hope to have the sand and dry rock in next week and have the last of the equipment installed
