  1. So Janet you are back? I know its you, only you so naughty one so what is my number in your email list now?
  2. http://www.sgreefclub.com/forum/index.php?...=75509&st=0 All the ans is here!
  3. wow, damn swee man bro... can i know who your tank maker? by the way what skimmer you are using?
  4. anyone tried this before? http://www.skimz.sg/products/additives.html
  5. Never had a skimmer that foam so well man!
  6. kloses upzzzzzzzzzz......
  7. About 48hour later,fully break in.

  9. Excellent skimmer no question...
  10. Yes Sorb 4 is very effective and long lasting.
  11. Fluidized reactors have become very popular in the last few years for reefkeeping. Historically fluidized reactors were used for biological filtration and typically filled with sand or some other inert media to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria to aid in the reduction of Ammonia to Nitrate via the Nitrogen fixation cycle. The fluidization of the media greatly increases the surface area of the media allowing for a greatly increased amount of these strains of organisms. In the reef aquarium however fluidized reactors are being used for chemical filtration instead of biological filtration. Fluidization of media is a very simple and effective method to increase the surface area of a given substrate to increase the transfer rate between the liquid and solid phases. Typically the substrate is fluidized using a controlled velocity of fluid to convert the substrate from a solid state to a liquid like state. Fluidized beds have many advantages including high transfer rates when used for chemical filtration as well as huge surface areas when in use as a biological filter. Fluidized reactors used for chemical filtration in reef tanks typically contain phosphate adsorbing media, either granular ferric oxide (GFO) or alumina oxide (AO). GFO is typically used however due to some risk of releasing aluminum back into the aquarium water when using AO based media. GFO based adsorbents such as AquaPharm SORB4 very popular as they will remove both organic and inorganic phosphate from the aquaria at a very rapid rate. Some care must be taken to reduce phosphate levels at a slow controlled rate or rapid tissue necrosis (RTN) can occur. However if low phosphate levels are achieved in a reef aquarium it will help reduce nuisance algae, increase coral health, color, growth and improve the reef bioload. It is a goal in maintaining a reef tank to keep nutrient levels such as phosphates at or close to zero (0-undetectable). Overall fluidized reactors can play an important role in the reef aquarium. Not necessarily by providing biological filtration but as a means to export unwanted chemical elements from the captive reef by the use of the different types of media available to the reef keeper.
  12. can pm me the price.. thank!
  13. then i think you must be driving s320 la bro jervis? haha(kidding)
