  1. One thing I love about this hobby is the constant ability to learn something new. However, there are also occasions where it is worth learning something old. Techniques that reefers used historically but are in dire need of resurrection, forgotten heroes (or heroines) so to speak. As such I wanted to share a few topics on reefing that I hope you find useful. So let's start the ball rolling with the first forgotten hero... Sulphur Denitrifiers. For the life of me I just don't understand why Sulphur Reactors are not more popular after all they are possibly one of the easiest "set and

  2. Equipment looking to let go. Black hydra 32-$400 (bought mid October 2020, full box+receipt) 2016 apex- comes with energy bar, ph & temp probe, auto feeder, ( no display unit). Those of you who wants to try out apex but don't wanna make a hefty investment, good place to start. $350 Deltec 1500(non DC skimmer), newest model -$350 All these items have been tested and are 100% working condition( welcome to test before collection). Only listing those that I would wanna upgrade down the road once new tank is up. Unlisted equipments, pls do not enquire. Thank you. Sent from my SM-G9

  4. For $20, I have a sturdy 28L, 6mm glass, ATO reservoir (dimensions in cm 58 x 12 x48high). It has split glass cover/lids which have been drilled for cables and tubes. Could also used as a small refugium or if adventurous a mini display tank. Just $20. WhatsApp me on 88080763 or PM me here. Happy reefing. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

  5. Cause related to DOC may be hard to prove without controlled experiments & proper equipment. What I have is anecdotal data which may not be able to demonstrate root cause or nail down to the factors affecting the result. Bacteria is a new topic & am keen to explore more. I did notice 2 incidences of massive SPS RTN (really overnight) several days apart. A slimy cloud was observed just above the rocks. Sections of various SPS colonies in contact with the slimy cloud had the flesh peel off overnight. Everything else above it was OK. In both incidences, the tank were fed with Ocean N

  8. I've started to journey into the microscopic world of the reef tank. Invested in a good microscope with a camera hooked up. Its great to be able to pinpoint issues and apply the correct fix. For example : Is this dinoflagellates or diatoms? What kind of algae is this? Or be able to identify various parasites. For a start, many have experienced brown jelly disease on hammer & torch corals. The common advise is to discard it immediately as the brown jelly can spread. Another common advise is to dip the coral with coral dip or with iodine to disinfect it. This post hopes to g

  9. It has been one month+ since using the Mastertronic. And about 3yrs+ with the Alkatronic. There has been queries from fellow reefers along the way. I'll share some pics & comments here. Let's start with Mastertronic. Configuration & setup : Mine is set up to run Ca, Mg, PO4 & NO3. While the Mastertronic is able to test Alkalinity (using Salifert test kit), I configured mine to skip alkalinity and continue to use Alkatronic to measure this parameter. Alkatronic uses its own proprietary reagent to measure the change of pH using a pH probe. Each bottle can last ~2500

  21. Exciting days ahead!! I noticed you commented about using kalkwasser with ATO. In your case, as you do not have corals, Ca & KH should not reduce as it is not consumed. But by adding kalk, you may be continuously increasing Ca & Alkalinity. Personally, i won't be bothered with pH (don't chase the numbers). Without corals, just use fresh water for ATO. Regarding biodiversity, don't add live rocks from LFS. They are loaded with pests and risk doing more harm than good. In any case, once you add corals, you will get 'new' bacteria anyway. If you are 'kiasu', just add different b

  23. The c02 scrubber works for me, which mange to bring up 1-2 ph point. But the effect is limited, if you are trying to bring up 7.8 to 8.3 then you will need to combine with other methods as well. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

  24. Nice write up! It appears that ciliates are associated with many coral diseases. But the question is, are they the cause of the disease, or are they just proliferates when the tissues become necrotic. It could also be the case of increased pathogenic bacteria population at the disease coral, which provides food for these bacteriaphagic ciliates Great start for more discovery!
