  1. Haha it’s a valid question. Dosing direct to main tank cos I don’t have space to place the dosing bottles in the sump area. Have a multi shelf rack just next to the tank which makes it easier. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Just thought I share some updates with the tank. Tank is coming 69 days fishless, couple more days before i can add fishes. Unfortunately, hyposalinity failed for me, and my fishes are back with the ich problem. Will be moving the fishes to a 25gal to do copper treatment this time. So i guess its going to be another month of fishless for the display tank. Colours are really starting to pop and show. I attribute this to my zeovit coral system as well as my t5 hybrid. The t5 is now on for 9hrs a day. Still planning to add a few more corals towards the left of the scape. Also, have rem
  3. Main display tank updates: Decided to try out the aquatic life hybrid fixture. I got the white edition, so i repainted my hanging brackets to match the fixture. Running 4 blue plus at the moment. Fixture is sitted at about 10 inches off the surface. Leds are at custom coral lab setting at about 65% intensity, with a acclimation of 3 weeks starting at 85%. Also, decided to run full sps system as I wasn't really so keen on LPS corals. They look beautiful but just wasn't my thing. Still have a couple of pieces, but may choose to sell them off eventually. Sold off my Zoa arch
  4. Hey Bro this was my order: Pro-Elite Series The Most Advanced Aquarium Dual Stage CO2 Regulator BS341 / DIN477 / W21.8x14
  5. I paid about 2xx for 2 pieces. Sorry to hear about your loss as well. =( I initially had 2, but the first one died a week after. This has been with me for a month now. Was eating heavily, but just died overnight for some reason. Probably will stay away from anthias for now.
  6. Its a sad day for my reefing journey. Lost the other borbonius anthias. Problem is I can't even ID why it died. No signs of any external or internal parasites or diseases. Anthias was eating well, died with a fat tummy. It was still very active the night before. Water parameters were all good, salinity was checked using a newly calibrated hanna salinity checker. PH was at 8.0. Anyone can share their ideas why it died?
  7. Just to share on the progress of the AI fuge. I use the intensity and the duration to have full control of the tank's no3 and po4 levels. Video of my cheato ball in action. IMG_0550.mp4

  9. Thanks for the info. I reckon that may be a possibility as well. It died even though it was eating well. My other borbonius is still doing well in qt. Happy to report that hyposalinity starting to show some improvements in the overall well being of the fishes. The powder brown has been spotless for the last few days. Added in a 2 new fishes, one powder blue and a new flame angel. I understand that during the QT process, you shouldnt be adding new fishes. That said, I am only starting the one month of QT count down from the day i last spot any ich. So these new additions together with the
  10. Tank updates: The main tank is doing great.CA and Alk is stable at 420 and 8.0 with the Cr at 6.6ph. Probably my best investment for the tank. Fishless for about 1 month now. The great thing about going fishless is that I hardly ever clean the glass now. Also, trying out zeovit's coral system 1,2,3,4. Some photos with my Tg6. I'm still learning how to use it. And some photos of the display. Tank is pretty much full. QT tank Salinity at 1.009. Lost my flame angel to some fungus infection, tried to medicate with prazipro and general cure
  11. Back from my overseas holiday. Came back and saw that i lost 2 fishes while i was away. 1 Borbonius anthias and the yellow coris didn't make it. Not sure why, as both were eating well before i left. Tank salinity is still at 1.009, all the fishes do not have signs of ich, except for my powder brown tang. Gonna continue the treatment, hopefully i dont lose anymore fishes in the process. If all else fails, will raise the salinity back, and do a copper treatment. Else, the main display tank is doing well, seeing some amazing polyp extension i didnt get before. Didn't lose a
  12. Nah, usually just window shopping when i'm overseas. Off to Bali for a couple days break! Have a great week reefing guys.
  13. Dropped by a local fish store today in Tokyo. Thought I share some pics and some of the Japanese dry goods that we don’t get to see here in sg. The store is called Paupau aqua garden Ginza. It’s located at the Ginza district about 4 stops from shinagawa on train. Very close to the tsukiji fish market. Coming in you are greeted by a the largest freshwater plant selection I’ve seen. Premium plants from ada as well. This store caters more to the freshwater enthusiast. The marine selection is much smaller. But was surprised to see a helfrichi firefish, retails for about $385 sgd.

  14. Besides the one i had previously that jumped, this my second time. So fingers crossed =/ Thanks guys. I'm away alot, so its harder for me to monitor the fishes with copper treatment. Also, I'm keen to try hypo and see the results, its easier on the fish, although its not as effective as copper. If it doesn't work out, might end up doing a copper treatment. Have you had experience with copper treatment? Would like to learn more about it. My nano was 2ft, overall volume was around 25 gallons. I had only a few fishes in there. Eventually i got a 4ft, but the fish jumped b
  15. Updates on the fish QT. Finally brought the SG down to 1.009. Took me about a week to do this, from what i read, you only need 48hrs to drop the salinity without ill effects, but i didn't want to take my chances, as I need my two newer additions to be feeding confidently. Ich spots are still obvious on my Powder brown tang. My understanding is that the salinity only kills the free swimming stage of ich. Will have to wait for the adults to drop off, before the official one month of qt begins. Do correct me if i'm wrong. Got myself two borbonius anthias. Both took about 1 week b
