Running a hair and skin care store is boring for a guy who cares nothing about his hair like me; people would ask me something and inside my head all I could think is "Alberto VO5?" well, have to care for the customers so I had to apologize for my lack of knowledge to which most people understood and knowing my sister I think they will be happy she's back tomorrow (after a canceled flight due to tropical storms)!!! Back to reefing !!!! Got some little frags in the tank yesterday night; I think the glass shield played a huge part on the temperature plus the previous days were scorching hot; today was pretty warm but with some wind blowing. Average temp. in the tank 80; not bad; night cools off to a nice 77-78 degrees. Zero Nitrates, Phosphates, pH 8.2, Alk. 12Dkh, Calcium on the low side ~380 and working on it; Mag. I can't find my test kit Skimmer barely pulling brownish stuff (no fish poo yet) Tweaking the ATO but I think a new bracket is needed, darn it. Emergency float switch is too close to the primary. I will not worry much anymore about the rock work maybe next upgrade.... Maybe sometime next year I'll put to work an OM 4-way and ditch the power heads for a clean "Look ma, no soda cans" tank. I was able to squeeze a 5G container for the RODI so no more square pail for the time being. Dossing manually and then move to a dual dosser or save enough for the Vertex. Media reactors is what I have to work on next. Have no images to upload yet.
