    300 Gallon Disaster Reboot

    This is one of the rare times that my angels weren't crowding in front of the camera to provide some reference! Each head is about 3x3" and I would guess 5-7 heads. The whole piece is about 8"x5" or so. I had a single head on the sand for about a year and it never did anything. Once I mounted it to the rocks, it really exploded and tripled in size.

    The way my phone adjusts to the Radions is really wild!

    This sump has been dark all three years, but I've toyed around with going back to a lit refugium. Both methods have their benefits and I think the lit sump produces more in the way of microfauna. One thing that I don't miss is cleaning coralline and other types of algae off the skimmer! Every time I sit down to redesign my sump, some new project comes along.

    Haha I don't normally let it get this full. One day we were talking about neutral colors and the next half my house is covered in plastic! I'm not exactly sure how this happened but I blame HDTV. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

    I got different worms!

    Most worms that we encounter in our aquariums are harmless, with the exception of medusa, bobbit, anchor and flatworms. I've never encountered the worm that you're picturing above, but it looks like they're probably okay. If they're on the glass, then they're eating pods or algae. They're really too big to be a fish parasites and you would have noticed a decline in coral health if they were bothering them. A big reason that we keep wrasses, dottybacks, and hogfish in our aquariums is for pest control.

    I got different worms!

    Dorvilleidae, a subspecies of bristle worms. From what I've read, that's as big as they get but still sting like other bristle worms.

    Sump design

    Whose going to build your sump? Been thinking about an upgrade myself. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

    Planet Aquarium 130g

    Wasn't the same without ya! I stopped by to visit with friends and see all of the shiny things for sale. It's pretty hard to buy something when you have no idea what you want. A lot of great stuff though. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

    TDS

    Transferring the pump from salt to fresh RO will show some TDS over time, that's happened to me before. There's also something referred to as "TDS creep" where refilling the RO resevoir over long periods without cleaning can result in a TDS reading.

    TDS

    Did you check the TDS of the ATO top-off or the display tank? If the reservoir gets any salt in it, then you'll get a TDS reading that doesn't accurately indicate nutrients. I would also warm against chasing phosphate. The PO4 test is largely unreliable and will not reflect the actual situation in the tank. Also, ULN is basically the keto diet of the aquarium world; aesthetics with the risk of death to keep things interesting. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

    Cheeky Superman Rhodactus escaped the motherland and tried to form a new colony in a far away place! Found this little bugger in-between Acroland and Hammer Island. Guess he'll need a new home! Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
