  2. Good day reefers, well time really flies and my reefer 350 has reach the 3rd year milestone. Really enjoyed this journey and been thru many ups and downs, more downs i would say lol [emoji23]. Killed tons of corals and waste alot $$ but which hobby dont waste $$? Reefing is a very rewarding hobby and it will never cease to be boring as reef tank always got daiji one, be it equipment failure, pests, unknown coral/fish deaths, dreaded brown jelly disease, Famous STN and RTN bros, Regardless of all the problems, seeing your fish and corals doing its thing is like having a piece of mother nature in your own home, really takes the stress away and helps to calm me down. Some pictures (with orange filter) to mark this milestone, hopefully many more milestones to go! [emoji4] Thanks for reading and happy reefing! Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

  4. Saw this idea online & decided to make one. Bubble algae removal tool. Connected to a hose. Dig out the bubble algae with the sharp tip & siphon the bubble out whole. Or if its broken, the bits is siphoned out immediately.

  5. Was sourcing for Marco rocks but was out of stock in Singapore. Contacted the friendly peeps at RMS and learned that they carry in STAX rocks which are flat rocks cut out from Marco. After 3-4hours of sniffing liquid glue and sand, satisfied with my current scape. Gave myself a pat on the back

  9. Just wanted to share my success on training a Mandarin Fish to feed on frozen food. The frozen food acts as a supplement to allow time for my copepods to breed and not be scavenged by the predator. I will train my Mandarin once or twice a week with a glass jar filled with mysis and bloodworms alongside with pellets. My Mandarin surely can't resist the temptation to check out and explore the gold mine.

  17. The 125G is just over a year now. Here's a FTS of the reef at 12 months. Being sps dominant, stable water parameters are a must. Ample light and flow too. I try to keep things as simple as possible. I run the Balling method and auto dose the major and minor elements. Aside from that, I have filter wool replaced weekly in acrylic sock holders, a large protein skimmer, and a refugium with chaeto that I prune monthly. There's a small 13W UV pump in the sump as well. 10% weekly water changes. I introduced beneficial bacteria from the start to get the tank seeded and cycled. Regular dosing (every other week) of bacteria helps to keep nitrates and phosphates in check too, especially when bioload is elevated. Auto water top-up is gravity fed and controlled with a float valve. Fish are fed a pellets, flake, freeze-dried black worms and/or nori once or twice daily. Corals get amino acids.

  28. Did my half yearly 'major' tank maintenance over the weekend. Broke up the branching hammer colony on the left & spaced them out a little more. Did a major water change of about 140L and removed most of the corals on the sand bed to thoroughly vacuum the sand. Goal is to mitigate risk of old tank syndrome & to keep nitrates in the 2.5-5ppm range long term. Siphoned out water from the tank into several buckets. Torches in the bucket. Good time to scrape off the vermatid snails. With half of the sandbed clear, the sand is siphoned. And corals from the other half is moved around. Finally put everything back. 3hr water change A friend highlighted this interesting looking fish that Iwarna advertised. Looks so interesting. In reality, they are about 2cm at Iwarna (will grow to 7cm). Got them at the same time as the Springeri Damsels on 21st January. Scientific name : Priolepis cincta Common name : Banded Reef Goby Behavior : Reer safe. Very very shy. Perch on cave walls in upside down position. Next seen on 7th Feb. Well, glad to know its alive

  39. A quick review on the Clarisea Gen 3 Fleece Filter. Looking back, my old Clarisea Gen 2 (SK5000) has been running since April 2018. A longer fleece roll was introduced around June 2019. Increased from 25 meter to 40 meter (Same spec @ 20 microns. And for the same price). The Clarisea has been a game changer on my tank husbandry the past 3.5 years. Previously, I had to change the sump filter wool every 3 days to mitigate rising nitrate levels. With the Clarisea, the filter fleece is replaced just once every 2 months or so. A common question I’ve been asked is whether the Clarisea is worth getting. I will probably never ever run a tank without the convenience of it. I got hold of the Clarisea Gen 3 recently to replace my 3.5yr old Gen 2. Its similar to the Gen 2 but with some nice improvements from assembly & usability point of view. I understand that there is no change to the fleece, motor & controller. Did some sump work today & its a good time to take some pics & provide actual usage update. As a quick recap during unboxing, the main panels came assembled out of the box. Just need to fasten a few more pieces after installing the filter fleece. Gen 3 has a stiff roller to guide the fleece. This will prevent the fleece from bunching up like this seen in early Gen2 batches. The root cause is the white plate bends under the force of the taut fleece. And the curved shape of the plate causes the fleece to bunch up. I recall seeing current Gen2.5 version with this stiffener roller implemented already. Underside view : I typically allow about 30% of the water to pass through. The bypass adjustment is now more accessible and located under the inlet pipe. I leave mine slightly open like this Though some people may want to close it entirely for max filtration efficiency. Fleece removal tool. This is a convenient accessory to have. No more manual unwinding or cutting the dirty fleece with a blade. Just place the tool under the fleece & push down. Then push down (with 2 hands) The clear acrylic panels are removable without any tools. It simplified the initial assembly process & makes it easier to take things apart when its time to give the unit a thorough wash. Looking at the picture, I just realised that I had assembled the used filter fleece incorrectly. You can see one end lifted off the acrylic. This happens when the motor wire is orientated to the bottom. The correct orientation should be this. I previously had a bad experience of the motor wire cut by the sharp acrylic edge. Got it serviced at Reef Depot (btw, good after service & warranty support). You can see from the picture below that Gen3 has a feature to prevent the the motor wire from being damaged by the acrylic edge. The fresh roll of fleece is supported by this simple acrylic holder. This design positions the fleece perfectly perpendicular and has less friction compared to Gen 2 holder (where the cardboard core is held by 2 sponge inserts). Less friction probably means the motor won’t need to work so hard. The fleece extension kit is now sold as a separate accessory. This is for folks with limited space & need to move the fresh fleece upwards. This is a pic from my old setup. Nice to see design principles deployed at the float switch to eliminate use of fasteners. The float switch shaft needs to be cleaned occasionally. Simply slide it off without the need to mess around with screws & nuts in that tight space. Tops down view showing the clean side & dirty side. To sum it all up: The Clarisea eliminates the mundane task of changing filter wool every few days. The latest Gen 3 performs similar to the previous Gen2.5 but has nice design & usability improvements.

  40. I'm currently running rowaphos in a typical tall reactor but found 2 issues with it : 1) After a while the rowaphos tends to stop churning/fluidizing. And water that goes in the reactor starts to 'channel'. That is, water flows through small paths of least resistance and do not have effective contact with all the media in the reactor 2) Not so much an issue but an inconvenience to have to disconnect the tubes to the reactor then lift the full reactor out of the sump. My sump is quite packed & need to carefully navigate the reactor through tubes & wires. The sump clean up effort was also to make space for the Nyos Torq G2 to solve the above issues. Below is the new Torq G2 1.0 body (right side). Compare that with the old Gen1 - 2.0 sized body (on the left). The 1.0 sized body is smaller but good enough for me - only running rowaphos. The 2.0 body has plenty of volume. Its actually a good size for running bio pellets. Now has a fine mesh. Seems to do a good job keeping small media like rowaphos above the mesh. Also comes with a larger mesh. Good for less restricted flow or for larger media. The top sponge has a slit at the top. This is an exit path for water to prevent internal pressure from building up in case the sponge gets clogged. One thing I found was that its now very convenient to rinse the rowaphos. Its really as simple as just pouring clean water from the top & let the dirty water flow through the bottom mesh. After a few liters, its all clean. Effortless! Both the top & bottom have a locking mechanism. This finally solves the big issue of the older generation where the lids can slip off. I put this amount for my 850L tank. That's about 1/3 bottle of Rowaphos. Woot! Fluidizing very nicely in the chamber. And easy to adjust the flow. Clockwise to reduce the flow. Anti clockwise to increase flow....just like running a tap.

  45. Clarisea The advent of automatic fleece filter, such as the clarisea, brings about a much improved method of mechanical filtration. Gone are the days of floss replacement every couple of days. Not to mention the roller feature regularly remove trapped detritus out of water, preventing decomposition. The fleece claim to handle a flow rate of up to 5000 lph, and filtering particles down to 20 microns. If you remember the chemistry experiment during your teenage years, you would probably recall the horribly slow process of filtration. Once the solid particles start to build up on the filter paper, the flow rate of liquid grinds to a stop. A typical school lab filter paper has a micron range of 30-50 microns. So how does the clarisea filters smaller particles, and faster? I think there are a few engineering trick involved. Large Active Filtration Area The design of the filter roll allows a large surface area of fleece to participate in the filtering process. And logic will tell us, the more fleece we use, the more water can pass through. In the normal operation, the water level will sit just below the float switch activation point, regardless how the clarisea is positioned. This ensures sufficient fleece material participates in the filtering process. Large Head Pressue The pressure different on both side of the fleece is the driving force to push the liquid through. When the clarisea is set up correctly, the liquid level difference is significant. This produce a large driving force to push liquid across the fleece material. Think of this like the booster pump for your RO unit, the increase of the flow rate is critical for the roll filter to operate effectively. The Fleece The heart of the filter is the fleece, in here plenty of engineering goes into making it work, well (which is really a basic requirement in filtering media industry). Let's have a look at the fleece material This is a piece of (kind of) clean fleece under the microscope. Clearly we can see a hole punched out in the material. In fact, if you were to look at the roll filter carefully, you can spot all these hole easily even with just the naked eye. So, here is the question. How does this fleece carries out filtration? Is it like a colander where water flows through the hole and the solids strained on it? In another words, are these holes small enough to trap the detritus in our aquarium? Well, these holes are approximately 1mm in diameter. That's 100x the size of most phytoplankton, 20x the size of a rotifer. It's too big to "clarify water". The actual filtering is not done by the hole, but by the fabrics around it. Looking at this picture of used (and awfully smelly) piece of fleecs shows clearly that there in no solid material trapped by the hole. Rather, many cells, and unidentified mass are collected on the web-like polymer. This is where thr number of 20 microns come from. If you look back at the picture of the clean fleece, you can see the unpolluted network of fibers. This is how Clarisea traps detritus for you. Why then will they punch holes on the fleece? Wouldn't this allow water to flow through without being filtered? I believe this is an engineering compromise. If there is no provision for these holes, the flow rate through the fleece material will be too low to be of any practical use. These holes acts as a built-in bypass, to allow the clarisea to handle large flow reasonably well. This is my take on clarisea fleece, and me appreciating how they kind of make this work. *on a separate note, they should really include an "end of roll indicator" just like those receipt machines. So that we don't have to guess how much material is left on the roll.
