  1. So my new vallentini puffer loves snails, so if that’s his food of choice, we’re is the beat place to get affordable snails?

    Can bio load be to low?

    25 gallon Lagoon, feed once per day. pinch of cobalt brine flakes, pinch of tdo chroma boost
  4. Would love to see pics, I had the original Kessil, and the sun beam through the water look was amazing
  5. I’ve been having trouble with algae, which thank goodness is better. I’m wondering if I have to much filtration vs bio load. Filters: bio spheres, 30lb of live rock equivalent surface area 25 pounds of live rock filter floss carbon Purigen skimmer Refugium Bioload: 2 Clown fish snails / crabs 3 soft leather corals. So the question is, can you over filter?

    Thanks, I'm thinking I may start to reintroduce some new corals or fish black friday, if any of the local stores have some sales. I'm a bit nervous still, but I think I'm in the home stretch.

    Tank is doing much better, I started to get a little green algae on the rocks and sand bed, but this looks 1000 different then before. I’m assuming this is normal, and I should not worry. https://photos.app.goo.gl/47GBtBV8fe74b4k38 https://photos.app.goo.gl/nQXbFStv8br4Jwur9
  8. So I turned on the wave maker mode on my Tunze Nano. Things are moving back and forth very little, is this really good for the corals? It moves water in the whole tank, but I’m concerned it will cause lots of stagnant areas in the tank. What is the best settings for these adjustable pumps. Here is how it moves the water and coral. https://photos.app.goo.gl/TuHPJrsAcp5mGjU29

    First time it’s looked liked this in months. Also how do you take photos without the disco ball.

    Update: https://photos.app.goo.gl/e1KT1fVE1V86SQcQ6 Things are looking better, way better. So how do I balance how much filtration I do, so I don’t end up at zero everything causing another breakout? What I’m thinking Chamber 1L Nano tech Bio Spheres, for increased biological filtration capacity. Chamber 2L skimmer Chamber 1R Filter floss, Carbon, Purigen Chamber 2R Refugium Cheato

    Update: Well day four of Dino X and UV is promising. I’m now trying to figure out when I should do a water change, and pull the UV. I was thinking at least another week until there are 0 signs of anything. I will then need to re grow my coal one algae, as the Dino has wiped most of it out. https://photos.app.goo.gl/EXSpSy2BZ7E6ogQN8

    I hope it’s 1 watt per gallon, and I should be able to bring th flow very low.
