    So I needed some operating space got a h380 over the fuge instead of the Mars hydro. Chaeto doubled in a week.

    The Mars hydro grew chaeto well but this h380 is pretty damn good and it uses less space over my sump.

    I kept hitting the light when I was working in my stand. I mean they both grow chaeto but I think this one is slightly faster. I went from a softball to a basketball in a week. The other went from softball to a volleyball or slightly smaller.

    Volume of a basketball is 60% more than of a volleyball, nice!

    Not yet still waiting on the reactor to build up the bacteria. It'll take 2-3 weeks.

    Finally the sulfur denitrator is working dialing in the effluent now to get nitrate reduction.

    On the other hand chaetongrowing like a basketball every 1.5 weeks.

    Did 2 70gallon water change back to back dropped my nitrates down to 5-10ppm. Let's see if the corals respond better.

    Here is my icp analysis

    Before

    After massive 75% water change.

    Guess it was the high nitrate that's causing the issues. My nitrates finally down to 5ppm from denitrator and nopox.

    I wouldn't think that moving from 0.07 to 0.09 would be that significant.
