    Are CO2 Calcium Reactors out of favor nowadays?

    I actually have been running the CarX I pulled off the 69g tank and am running it on the little 6g frag tank John let me borrow. :) No edit just acknowledging my excessive use of "running"

    Are CO2 Calcium Reactors out of favor nowadays?

    The initial cost is prohibitive because it requires good components to do it's job reliably. I'm using one but I already had the CO2 equipment from my planted tanks to repurpose. Most tanks can do just fine (inexpensively) on 2 part until Alk consumption reaches a certain level where volume of...

    What do you do after a water change?

    Honestly I think the best way to “reuse” old saltwater here on the west coast is to let it evaporate off in a large shallow container and throw away the remaining dry salt. Probably a slightly stinky affair and one that requires a decent amount of outdoor space but I can’t think of any serious...

    You're going the more patient route which I would have preferred to do :-) No specks of coralline showing up yet?

    Thank you! This guy yes? Got him at California Reef a couple months before he closed the store. So maybe 6-9 months? It's been very hardy from my experience. Always looking pretty happy considering I don't really give it any special treatment. Occasional target feedings of frozen mysis or PE...

    Thanks Josh! Everything is just crammed in there to get acclimated. I need to come up with a plan to locate all that coral. PAR meter tests tomorrow...

    All 5 lights up at the 10.5” mark I’ll keep it there for a week or so and start lowering it to 8.5” to acclimate the corals. In line for the PAR meter as I’m very interested to see the numbers. The low level shimmer these bars gives is very pleasing to the eye.

    It's been a busy week! I had a Hanna Nitrite test giving me readings of 18+ ppm for a few days that prompted a pair of 40g water changes and worry so I finally went to the local SJReef Co to verify my readings. Faulty test kit. Nitrites were zero. Sometimes...................... Fish were...

    Alkalinity seems off in fresh saltwater mix

    I usually calibrate every time i use my refractometer now after having a salinity issue myself. How often ya'll think it's worth replacing the refractometer? 2 yrs? 4?

    Alkalinity seems off in fresh saltwater mix

    Calibrate your refractometer if you can and haven't already done so. Low salinity will result in low Alk. Mixed salt that sits for awhile can drop in Alk and Cal as well.

    This is a great video showcasing his experiences in reefing. I have thought about this very idea before with acrylic rod. Marco rock has a tendency to crack and break while being drilled so I'm not sure this would work for me if I tried it. Going to try and grab one of those diamond drill bits...
