Meet my DIY mini spear.
I ise this tool woth great level of success to kill pests like bad acro crabs, inject aiptstia or even catch fish that are added by mistake only to discover they are not reef safe.
The needle is sharp and thin i can stick it between the coral branches no matter how tight the space is. Also crab fish or other large pests get pierced before they react and run.
So many acro crabs I catch using this needle.
I also once captured a bad leopard blenny that I added only to doscover its main diet is acros. I pierced it and took it out, believe it or not the fish survived and living happily every after in its final system.
Just now caught a bad gorilla acro crab, pierced it then my wrass took care of the rest and devoured it.

Very handy tool

You should diy a rubber banded one. Like for spear fishing

I had it made of transparent plastic tube, so when its in the water u cannot even see it. Which i think helped me get close to the target without them noticing it...

I finally figured out the source of the high zink. Look like my RODI unit needed membrane and stages change. So sad I have been dumping some metals in the system which probably what triggered some of the base STN on some of the millis.
Just placed an order for media and new membranes.

Just shows how important to always check thw basis when you facing an issue. Never occures to me to check thw RODI till last qeek only to realize it was outputting 2 ppm TDS.

My plan of attack is
- will fill in 170g natural seawater so i start doing quick watwr changes and do not hwve to wait till thw RODI arrives
- will add a poly filter to bind some of the harmful elements in thw water(whatever poly filter do os better than nothing)

- send bi weekly icp to track levels..

Cheers.

How did you discover it was the RODI? Was it reading 0tds out and still contaminated?
The more i do water change the zinc and some metals increase or stay the same.
Then I realized the tds reading snd the pressure on thw rodi is low which indicates membrane lower efficiency.
Finally sent an ICP for a fresh water mix using my rodi and another using LFS RODI but using my salt. And results showd zinc and metals in the mix that had my rodi.
