FarmerTy's 215 gallon - No Water Changes SPS Tank

Recommended Posts

Amazing color and polyp extension.  You're my hero, Ty!  Out of curiosity, what brand of salt mix do you use?

Thanks bud!

I don't do systematic waters changes but when I need to replace water, I just use coralife sea salt. I buy a big box from RCA during their Friday sales every once in awhile.

It was mostly red as I got it from you. Stayed that way but the new Encrustment was green. Then moved it to the T5 display and it went even more green.

My phosphates are sky high right now though... Was looking to resume Amino acid dosing again since I haven't used it in 3 years... Shot my phosphates up pretty high the last two weeks so maybe why color is off too.

See, I’m pretty sure that’s why my Po4 got high, acropower. But it’s not supposed to do that supposedly.

What are those fuzzy things sticking out the end of your corals?
