Recommended Posts

Long time no update.... Since the last upgrade, melted a few sps and due to the previous job requiring me to travel liek crazy I lost tons of Live stock...

Now at my new job n with Covid going on, decided it is time to stabilise the tank!

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!

Tank powered by Aquaforest n Orhpek. IMG_20200403_135358.jpegIMG_20200402_151729.jpegIMG_20200402_110814.jpegIMG-20200328-WA0005.jpegIMG-20200328-WA0004.jpegIMG-20200328-WA0002.jpegIMG-20200328-WA0006.jpegIMG-20200328-WA0003.jpegIMG_20200401_211526.jpeg

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! IMG_20200411_135616.jpeg

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 IMG_20200427_155922.jpegIMG_20200421_201407.jpegIMG_20200411_220048.jpeg

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 IMG-20200523-WA0027.jpegIMG_20200523_154632.jpeg
