  1. Yes thats what will happen with any skimmer. Not just nyos. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  2. The best way is to keep emptying the skimmer cup and adding equivalent new salt water till the skimmer stops overflowing Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  3. Both the UV and the chiller need specific flow rates. So its best to run separate pumps for those. Also a UV is like a heater. 25w UV is like a 25W heater, so feeding the output to the chiller is not a great idea. Best to control UV separate to turn on and off based on your water temp.

  5. How did you add ammonia to start the cycle? Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  6. You only need to add small quantities everyday and you should be fine. Then the salinity or ph dont affect given overall water volume. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  7. No its not the same. You dont have control over how much phyto you dose with an ato. It just depends on your rate of evaopration. On a hot day you dose more etc. dilution of that one bottle again depends on the size of your ato reservoir. With a doser you chose to dose 5 ml everyday for example...

  8. All marine phyto are grown and sold in saline water. So dosing using ATO will increase salinity and defeat the very purpose of an ATO. If you want to dose get a cheap doser. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

  10. What is pretty low? What is your current KH value? Yes test on the same time on consecutive days without any dosing to find out your daily Alk consumption. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  11. My question was not about whether you should qt or not. Why do you need to dose? Do you know what your daily Alk consumption is in dkh? If you dont know the answer you should not be dosing anything. Your fresh salt water mix at whatever salinity you desire ( say 1.026) should already provide adequate Alk, ca and mg levels. Lets say you use the red sea blue bucket salt - at 1.026, your alk should be around 8.5, ca around 420 and mg around 1350. Now if your daily tank dkh consumption is .2 dkh, then your Alk will fall from 8.5 to 8.3. So you add all for reef to make up for that deficit And keep it at 8.5. You should not be dosing to increase Alk from 8.5 to 8.7. Corals like parameters to be stable - consistently at the same levels and thats why you should dose to keep them at the same level. Not to icrease them. So unless you know what your daily Alk consumption is , do not dose anything. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  12. Why do you need to dose in a coral qt? Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
