    2018 INDMAS Holiday Party

    This is always a great time. Count us in! I wonder if Amanda is going to bring a shovel to find her gift this year? Or maybe Craig can bring a bucket for his pink gravel!? Bahaha

    Help with nitrates

    I would consider adding a Marine Pure block and start dosing MicobeLift Special Blend on the maintenance dosage. Both can be found at one of your local sponsors and shipped. There are lots of sales to take advantage of during black Friday too. How fast did you stock the tank and what does your bio load look like?

    Need advise on new skimmer

    Amanda we have the classic 110 on jenns tank. Skims well, easy to dial in and pretty quiet too. How heavy do you plan on stocking the tank? The octopus essence has a silencer that is 12% more quiet than other RO skimmers. https://premiumaquatics.com/products/octopus-essence-s130-space-saver-skimmer-waq1800s.html

    Can bio load be to low?

    You sure can over filter. Your nitrates and phosphate testing over a couple week period should let you know that. Especially without having algae lock those nutrients up. You should get a better idea now the algae had subsided. What is tank size again? How often and what do you feed?

    Algae just won’t go away

    yeah looks like you have made a lot of headway. keep it going T! just monitor nutrients and feeding and hopefully you can keep it at bay going forward

Let's make this a great event and hopefully bring some new faces out of the woodwork.

    Algae just won’t go away

    Looking a lot better T! Kinda hard to tell with the LED strobing but def looks like you made some headway. Congrats. As far as your chambers go I think that sounds okay. You just need to measure your nitrates and phosphates now...and once you get all that filtration changes done, measure them weekly for a month or so. That way you can tell what your feeding habits and filtration do for them. The bio spheres are a good way to increase bacterial surface area but will take time to build up. That is why you test weekly so you can see their usefulness. Keep us posted!
