  1. Yet another equipment replacement.... My second hand autoroll tat I got 2 years ago failed and bought the new one... Abt 20% smaller in terms of footprint.... Now sump not as packed hahaa! Did a more detailed maintenance for my sump, vaccumming out all the dirt, washed my skimmer, reactor... And took a top down view photo of my current tank... Quite satisfied with the growth since upgrading last Aug.... Coming a year soon and definitely doing btr den my old 3ft where I melted count less corals... Thks to Orhpek n AF haha! Aim to add another v4 and venture into more demanding sps soon Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  2. During this Cb time, made some minor refinements to my tank... After adding the additional chamber for my CR, realise my Calcium is maintained but my dkh is still dropping at 0.5kh a day. Hooked up a 1.5l mineral water to my wifi doser using Seachem Reef builder... But consumption is crazy at 160ml a day. I mix till the powder cannot dissolve anymore haha. Make me wonder the benefits of CR when my net cost of dosing from balling didnt decrease much. Re-arranged my reactor to the front as it gets replacement media more frequently. Changed my orphek v4 setting from coral growth to coral colour mode and it is supported by 2 Or2 bars. Intending to upgrade to run 2 v4s and remove the 2 Or2 bars in the near future. Happy to see some of my sps are growing Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  3. Yea... Nv have wet stuff right above an electric point. Actually u can also get those 3M tape and stick ur electric point to the side of the wall or cabinet away from water Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  4. Think this Cb period is not very good haha... Stay at home nth to do keep adding things haha.... To further stabilise my parameters... Added a secondary chamber for my CR.... Calibrate my ph probe.... Cannot remind pple the importance of calibration periodically. My ph probe show 7.4 ph when I m using a ph 7 calibration solution. Meaning when my controller is at 6.5, it is actually close to 7 rather than 6.5 haha! Monitoring now and hopefully things will be btr! Trying out ARM extra coarse media instead cos the Skimz media dun seem to be able to maintain my Kh. Hopefully my sps can grow grow grow haha! Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

Changed to a new skimmer tat can go up to 2000l Added a bunch of rocks, now my scape have even more space for corals.... Hooked up a jebao doser.... Added another bunch of sps frags from a reefer!

Much have happened over the 2 months! 2 weeks ago, my power bar broke down and my tank went without power for 2hours... luckily my tenant saw my tank have 0 movement and informed me... took urgent leave and no casualty haha! Added some sps... now due to traveling have yet to add the elegance coral that will take my middle rock as a showpiece... sps are encrusting and growing... added some frags from a fellow reefer waiting for it to stabilise... A tank powered by orhpek and aqua forest... Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  9. For softies and lps... the basic Red Sea salt is good enuff. No nid to go coral pro. That salt parameters r a bit high for softies n lps in my opinion. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

  13. Yes the chiller so far so good. Typically it kicks in and out within 15-30mins? I did not monitor but the problem is I just find it a tat noisier den my old chiller... Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  14. Hahaa I think I am good for a Long time... my bar lights are not used, my v4 are not even at 40% gona switch to the coral colour mode in 2 weeks Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  15. My new tank finally up and running... This tank set up is not without its ups and down... the whole set up took 3 days before anything could go in... Cabinet came in and chiller couldn’t go in, they made the adjustment, putting in sand rock, water and let it stabilise! Set up all my equipment, drill in all my Controllers and doing wiring management... Thks to Van bro for his help as well... otherwise I think the tank is still not running yet haha Also! My Orphek lights came and got set up! Now running it on aclimatising program... I must say I am very impressed how 1 unit can cover my 4ft tank... my 2 supplement light OR2 bars will just Ensure my 2.5ft Wide tank is properly covered... planned to on them when my sps are in.
