    Recommendations for ICP test?

    I’ve been using triton. The time to get results is fantastic for us in the Bay Area since they have a testing facility in Southern California.

    Dry Rock Reef - 11 months in

    Weeks to Months. I swapped out with others as well, but they’re rotated, so I know which ones are old ones. Just PM me when they come in and we can work out a time for you to swap them out.

    Randy’s Innovative Marine 75 Ext

    Thanks! I just have an AI Prime HD at the moment. I have a spare Radion xr15 G4 Pro laying around that is overkill, but why not? :) I just have to find a way to mount it because the RMS mount it too tall t fit in the sump area. Algae doesn’t seem to be a problem. I have turbos, trochus and...

    Dry Rock Reef - 11 months in

    If you want sand or rock rubble I have some in Castro Valley. Everyone claims they have no pests, so I won’t make that claim, but as far as I know, I don’t have any of the baddies (aptasia, majanos, acro eating flatworms, red/black bugs, red planaria, no bad nudibranchs). If you want, you could...

    Dry Rock Reef - 11 months in

    The chances of pests in ocean direct sand is not high. Not much besides bacteria could survive the long shipping times, temperature fluctuations, lack of food and lower oxygen levels.

    Dry Rock Reef - 11 months in

    Carribsea ocean direct sand is from the ocean, not dry sand with added bacteria (e.g carribsea arag-alive sand).

    Dry Rock Reef - 11 months in

    That makes no sense. If the biome isn’t there to support coral, how would a 100% water change everyday have coral grow long term? That just implies that I need to have clean water with stable parameters. And then what about nitrate and phosphate?

    I’d be the first. :) This tank was run with all dry rock. https://www.bareefers.org/forum/threads/randys-red-sea-reefer-250.19728/

    Just noticed this growth over the last 9 days and I’m hoping it’s signaling a crazy acro growth spurt in the tank! RRC Rainbow Splice

    Randy’s Innovative Marine 75 Ext

    Day 100 of the IM75 EXT. So far it’s been pretty smooth sailing. There was a very minor leak on the external fuge drain that wasn’t a big deal to address.

    I’ve never been able to have a silent sicce. I’ve been through a good number of them. IM MightyJet Mini is a great pump. Innovative Marine Mighty Jet DC Return Pump (Mini 266 GPH) https://a.co/d/8SGVxf9

    PSA: New Red Sea Salt Mix formula

    You can use the batch number on each bag/bucket of salt and enter it online to get some parameters, but not the ICP test results. https://g1.redseafish.com/mybatch/ They have always claimed they do ICP testing even on the older batches.

    PSA: New Red Sea Salt Mix formula

    FYI. Got an email about a new formula for Red Sea salt - both blue and pro buckets. No details given except it supposedly dissolves quicker and can be used in 20 minutes.

    For people directing outdoor air to your skimmer ... did you drill a hole in your house?

    That’s probably an accurate statement. As long as you cranked the pump up if air was restricted at all.

    For people directing outdoor air to your skimmer ... did you drill a hole in your house?

    Yeah. 0.5 would be winning! :) I’m assuming you meant 0.05 Also, if it was 1/4” tubing and thinned walled, I’d worry about kinking. Even rolled up/curved tubing on thin walled 1/4” tubing could restrict flow significantly.

    Dry Rock Reef - 11 months in

    If those par measurements are correct, lighting isn't likely your issue. Even if it was too little lightening, they would likely turn brown first, before dying and it would be in the months timeframe, not weeks. I’d still recommend checking/validating your test kits and possibly sending in an...
