Very excited about it I'll probably have extra to recoup some costs (or trade), it was absolutely packed with rock.Jealous of the pukani! The deal was probably all in that rock. If you can even find it for sale nowadays, most people are charging at least $10/lb if not more.
Good luck with the setup!
Yep, I remember from seeing your tank. What intensity do you run yours at? Also, have you tried hooking them up to an Apex VDM module?The controller can be annoying, but is actually worth something since they aren’t made anymore and the lights are still working. I use those same lights still
If you have a doser, use the doser. Spread out dosings are way better. Also, 7 seems low to me, but consistency is more important. I shoot for 8.5 to 9 in my tank.This STN seems to have coincided with manual alk dosing (2x per day) - are these alk swings likely to cause issues? Wondering whether I should stop Alk dosing for now (or do it spread over the day via doser) and just W.C. when Alk~7dKH. Thoughts?
Re. this - Dr. Tim mentions that nitrification (by bacteria) drops KH.My guess is that there are large buffers of each in the rocks and sand that get turned up every so often. I have not heard of acid producing micro-organisms as a reason of alk consumption before.
