Hello Folks: My name is John and I just thought i'd put another tank journal because I deleted the old one. I only deleted it because I quit my job 3 months ago after buying my house and I didn't know if I was gonna keep my tank. My wife told me to keep it since it was going to be my for my daughter and she loves looking at the tank. Long story short; tank was set up May 2018 after coming from a 7g fluval edge. The fluval edge was broken down in April 2018 due to sea spider infestations. I dip all my corals, but found that they do not kill the eggs that are on it. The sps corals were purchased off from a local reef central member, and I no longer keep in touch with that person. At first, I thought my parameters were off with the RTN, but not until I looked at night one day and noticed them everywhere. I took out all the sps I had and tried to dip them a couple more times over a course of 2 weeks, but I had no luck. I basically threw everything away and started fresh all over again. Currently the set up: red sea reefer 350 two ecotech xr15pro gen 3 on rms mounts with diffusers two ecotech mp10 sicce 3.0 return pump bubble magnus 5 skimmer two marine pure blocks seachem matrix in media cups Livestock: 5 blue green chromis 2 lyretail anthias 2 snowflake perculas 1 yellow tang Parameters as of 10/10/2018 using saliferts. Was using red sea pro salt, but changed it to blue just last month. nitrates 25 phosphate 0 calcium 410 magnesium 1400 alkanity 8.6 Made a small egg crate area for a refugium in next few weeks. Maybe add another xr15pro after borrowing the BARS par meter to see where I am at. Tempted at adding another lyretail anthia and a mystery wrasse. While still unemployed currently, the tank is almost at the 6 months mark and anxious to put in some corals. I have my little brother living in Texas that is mailing me some corals next month and looking forward in adding more color. Majority of his corals that he is going to send me was from my old tank 5 years ago when took a break due to life issues. Hoping to become more active in this community and looking forward in meeting other members.
