    I have a 40b that he could call home.

    Free: chromis

    I’m happy to home them. Should have plenty of room in a 240.

    Big Bubbler for pH?

    I implemented it strictly for the health benefits i believe it posed to the system. At higher PH the coral doesn’t need to work as hard to rid itself of the extra hydrogen to deposit skeleton. I believe this reduces stress and increases health. I’ve seen stronger PE and denser skeletons. I can...

    Big Bubbler for pH?

    The only takeaway I wanted to impart is that I think PH is much more important than given credit for. I aim for a stable thriving reef. I haven’t chased growth rates for atleast a year. I had faster growth at higher alk around 10-11. The monti cap frags that I weighed weekly for 6 months last...

    Big Bubbler for pH?

    I calibrate quarterly and have multiple probes. I’m confident where is has run for the last few months. Edit: I would never run that high using 2-part and I’m not even sure it would be possible. Regardless I am not alone in this approach. I recommend checking out chunningham reefs where I...

    Big Bubbler for pH?

    I think PH is so much more important than most give it credit for. Since I moved from 8.1-8.3 to 8.5-8.7 I have seen healthier tissue, greater polyp extension, and denser skeletons in the last few months. I’m just one example but I will never run a tank lower ever again or until my tank tells me...

    Testing ph - is it really necessary?

    When I did 2 part and CO2 scrubber on my reef250, the co2 scrubber brought ph from 7.92-8.17 to 8.1 to 8.3ish. Never did the co2 scrubber without a ph enhancing additive like 2-part or kalk. Kalk pulled it up to where it is now when I switched from 2-part.

    Testing ph - is it really necessary?

    No fish in the Frag system, co2 scrubber, and about 2 gallons of kalkwasser a day in a 100 gallon Frag system. With fish it will run lower, hard to say by how much.

    Testing ph - is it really necessary?

    Here is where I think PH plays an even bigger role. By reducing the energy it takes for the coral to deposit Skelton and rid themselves of the extra hydrogen you reduce stress. Less stress, the more it can live thru the things we don’t see, or can’t control. PH in my experience has resulted in...

    Testing ph - is it really necessary?

    I agree with this.

    Testing ph - is it really necessary?

    I run my PH outside that zone. I use kalkwasser, so I wouldn’t recommend running that high using 2-part. I think higher PH has a lot of positive benefits for me.

    Testing ph - is it really necessary?

    I treat my PH as important as the big 3 personally. I believe that high and stable PH provides a strong safety net.

    Welcome to Gran Playa Del Mar

    I appreciate it. I initially QT’d prior to adding to the main tank. My best guess with what happened is a cross contamination occurred while working on the tanks at some point. I wear medical gloves and frequently wash my hands so I try to be extra sensitive to that, regardless it still...

    Welcome to Gran Playa Del Mar

    https://humble.fish/community/index.php?threads/ich-and-uronema.8920/page-17#post-229718 I didn’t have any success running the display with hyposalinity, H2O2, and metronidazole. Shortly after being salinity back to full strength over a month Uronema popped up with a vengeance. Wiped out my...

    Welcome to Gran Playa Del Mar

    I’m dosing H2O2 in high amounts as a preventative. My QT experience has been abysmal for the last 4 months. Probably doing more harm than good, but if you see my thread over on humble fish it’s a terribly long list of disappointment. With that said, I might throw some Xenia in the sump for...
