  1. Thanks for the info. I found it the day it ran out and it was on a Saturday after business hours so I couldn't get it refilled until Monday. I couldn't believe that such a small swing was able to start a cascade of STN in most of my acro's and also a couple of montis. Bummer but iI guess it's part of this reefing game we play. Your tank looks good by the way.
  2. Wow Ty, I shouldn't be surprised by how awesome your tank is but I always am! You are a master water keeper that's for sure.
  3. Hey everyone, it's been awhile since I have been on here. I have had lots of ups and downs with the reef but I am in it for the long haul. The tank pretty much runs itself with automation and I only have to get involved with things every month or so. Almost all of the acropora I had died when my co2 tank ran out and the alk swung down for just 2 days, really a bummer because i can't afford to replace them all right now but I am just trucking along with what lived. No fish deaths for 2018 so pretty happy about that. If you have any questions ask away if not I hope you enjoy my non profess
  4. Thsnks! About a 25 on no3 and .07 for po4. Po4 will drop if I don't feed frozen everyday. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    Have you tried building an obsession? https://buildinganobsession.com/products/modular-frag-racks I received an email from BAO a couple years ago saying that zen reef basically took BAO's design so they should be very similar. I have nothing to do with either companies, just passing along information here.
  8. In my experience it comes back in the same spot because it likes the conditions, probably low flow where food and fish poop settle. I have little tiny spots where it shows up every once in a while so now I just proactively blow those spots off and I hardly ever see it. I think cyano is like ick, it is in every aquarium but doesn't show up if proper husbandry is applied regularly but it is always waiting for the right conditions to make a come back. I have used chemiclean without issues a couple times, I don't know what is in it, some say antibiotics, but I am highly doubtful using it will
  9. I agree with the fish. I have been thinking of rehoming most of my large fish and then change to the smaller cryptic fish. I have a chalk bass I love, out all the time, and a red stoplight cardinal I see once every 2 months. Your tank is amazing! Those corals are impressive! Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  10. Definitely a long video but for non geniuses like me I need the extra time to let it sink in. Lol Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  11. I found this video and I pretty much use this method. Rock steady and super easy to control. The mechanical switch gets a workout but that's what it is for. Going on 2 years now and no issues. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  12. I add it into my frozen mix as well. I think of it like a dash of salt and pepper for their food. Here is an interesting video I watched last night. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk
  13. I watched this last night. I can't believe how much crud was under that. 3 five gallon buckets worth! He won't need to buy media for the carx anytime soon.
  14. My house is 10 years old. They say the ducting is good, I hope they are right. I am going with a 16.5seer rating on the new model and the old one is 13. I hope to see a decrease in the electric bill but not counting on it.
