  3. Hi, you are right, it may due to the tank is realtively new. Though the tank has detectable nitrates and phos, salinity wise also stable. But the fact that it started receding within hours and got worst overnight. And I shifted it to more established tank next morning, which may also make things worst. It didn't stop receding and probably a goner in day 4. It's a single head torch that spliting into 3 heads, so each day from one head spread to another head. But my thought was that it shouldn't rtn that fast consider the tank parameters are in range. If it's due to not enough nutrients, it shou

  4. Sorry for ur loss bro, its common in this hobby. Not likely will refund cos the LFS can just say its ur water issue. Its hard to pinpoint and not fair to LFS also. Sometimes it can be our fault, rough handling, water issue etc...thats y online purchase is cheaper but comes with risk, the color can be off or the coral is sick or receding, sometimes the LFS cant tell also as they have many lifestock to look after..so sometimes go shop buy better, take time to see see look look, inspect pest, apitasia, receding tissue etc, den buy with confidence, sure u are paying premium, but at least it pass u

  5. Just a small update, thanks for the comments. I recently tried using acropower. My corals colours have improved, there is a slight reduction in phosphate levels though my nitrates are still undetectable. There also improved in growth but at the same time increase in algae which drove my phosphate lower due to available nitrates. It probably take some time for the phos to bottom out. Felt like I found a cure. I believe this will only work for tank that looking to increase nitrate and has undetectable nitrates and detectable phosphate.

  6. Hi guys, decomming my tank as i am shifting house soon. Corals are to go first before fishes and then equipments/tank. Basic tank parameters: kH 7.5 no3 2-5ppm p04 - 0.2ppm I have high nutrients and i feed alot, therefore colors are not at their best but still relatively good. I also have a flameback angel and it occasionally nips on the SPS, therefore there are not much PE on the sps now. Please refer to number below for pic of individual coral pieces, size stated are estimated. SPS: S1 - Golden Millepora colony 2.5 x 2.5" big- $50 S2 - Strawberry

  12. Ah ok I see what you mean now, and yes I would agree that many of the corals that we keep in our tanks are not as close to the sand bed as in nature. I've dived a little too in the past, and am very lucky to have been able to do a dive at the Great Barrier Reef once, albeit just a tiny part, but there was sand there for sure. And yea agreed as well, as long as it looks right for us, I think that's the most important, its a hobby after all, enjoy it! Thanks and will try to update and share the experience that I think I would like to know if I was another person reading this. On

  18. Dynamics of Bacteria One of the most potent, but invisible, part of the reef ecosystem is that of the bacteria. Different bacteria population wax and wane as the reef conditions change. Even in the most stable of reefs in the wild, the bacteiral composition fluctuates regularly. Similar in our reef aquaria, bacteria plays a key role in keeping the system stable. In fact, we reefers often manipulate bacteria population to tackle various problems in our reef tank. Therefore it is worthwhile to understand the dynamic of bacteria growth, such that we can have the correct expectation a

I can’t identify why the switches went off, but my wife who has heightened senses says there is a little girl spirit in my home. She is usually seen at my fresh water tank. But in recent days she is also spotted peeking into the marine tank. Because there is no other reason, we suspect it was her who played with the switches. She means no harm but I did say loudly that what she did would disrupt th

  28. Thanks for the feedback Rob. The overall volume without sand, liverock comes to around 200 gallons. Correction on my part - the pumps will be 2 x apex cor-20 and not cor-15 that together have the capacity to churn 4000 goh which is 20 times the water capacity. Over and above I have the apex wav kit ( 2 wavemakers) factored in and will be added as time passes. The apex wav at full capacity is another 4000 gph. The close looped system will be as follows: - 2 or 3 pipes drilled mid lower section at the back - a web of pipes connecting via a T spread across the entire bottom with Flare nozzles fo

  40. Received some queries what I feed my tank, how if it affects nitrate levels, and my opinion on Reed Roids. I feed minced fish/prawn meat & pellet food to the fishes daily. And Reef Roids to the corals about 3 times a week. Specific for Roids Roids, it’s a very good zooplankton based food for SPS, LPS and filter feeders. Broadcast feed is perfectly fine. In my case, both the return pumps & wavemakers go into feed mode, so the bits float around the display tank longer and be captured by the coral polyps. Mix w

  43. 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

  44. 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

  45. I shared about washing the sulfur reactor 2 weeks ago which in a way 'reset' it and needed to be cycled again. The drip rate today (about 2 weeks since) is almost back to original state. As can be seen by the Mastertronic's nitrate table history (read from bottom to top). Nitrates running around 7.6ppm now. Not bad. I'm a firm believer to feed more to the tank. Just have a better nutrient export system to handle the extra load. Aside from the regular pellets (2x a day), nori seaweed (about 2-3x a day since there are quite a few Tangs), a cube of home made fish/prawn minc

  46. Went through the very dreaded task of rinsing the sulfur reactor last weekend. Saved up 3 buckets of tank water during water change to rinse the mulm off the sulfur beads. Nevertheless, the reactor needs to go through the cycling process again (hopefully shorter cycle) In the process, the ceramic shaft of the pump was found to be broken. Good thing a spare was available in my stash of spare parts. A good time after that to put up the hammock & relax. From Airmocks : https://www.airmocks.com/

  47. Quick update on the Mastertronic. Its expected to be a crazy busy year on my side, so having a Mastertronic will be critical to ensure the fundamental water parameters are kept in view. Installed on 18th February and have been testing it the past few weeks first before giving an update here. Sitting next to the tank. The tubes are standard 2m in length and should not be altered. 1 tank water inlet, 1 RODI inlet (for rinsing) and 1 waste water outlet (into a waste bucket). Test kits used. This should last about 6 months. Reagents loaded in the carousell.

  48. Agree with the points above about keeping temperature below 30degC. My experience with non chilled tank : Can keep some more tolerant zoanthids in such conditions. Some will melt. Can keep green star polyp (GSP) Can keep forest fire cloves Cannot keep Purple cespitularia You can see some pictures in this post : https://www.sgreefclub.com/forum/topic/142862-my-slice-of-nature-part-3/?do=findComment&comment=1298008
