    Alex’s IM 150 EXT

    You should consider the following if you have not done them yet: siphon the mass on sand, turkey blaster to blow off on rock + let them settle on sand + siphon again. Those help me to get rid of 80-90% of them. Balance NP 100:1 + Microbacter 7 clean the rest for me. Last resort is chemical Red...

    LPS questions

    Yes 100% this and all the above. I found out the hard fact that keeping my hand out-of-water the sensitive corals have a much better chance to survive and thrive than I put my hand in to play around with flow/placement/rearrangement.

    @Darkxerox - I will look into it. I think it’s ammonium bicarbonate (not carbonate) Two weeks without light, flow, heater, fan… they look tedious but man they are standing strong. I wish my torches and acros as half strong as them

    Some rants on the hump day. In previous system and current one, I always have to deal with 0 nitrate (dosing neonitro to keep it at 2-5ppm) and 0.2 - 0.6 phosphate. I dosed Phosphate-E (lanthanum chloride) to bring phosphate down to 0.1 but it comes back up to the range after a few days so I...
