Honey & milk dosing


Recommended Posts

Considering your corals are LPS, no SPS or clams, which are the typical Calcium sinks,  I’d have thought that your regular water changes are able to keep up with the intake.

I’m not sure if the Calcium in milk is biologically available to corals & considering the unknown compounds in commercial milk, I’d just do regular water changes

Hey dude, umm actually I'm just like you, but there's dif. Story for me lately, my corals do so good for months without any requirements except for phytos, and within this month I've been losing so many, others are from bleaching and others is what I think is thinning of bone structure that's why it keeps shrinking and detatches to the skeleton, and I'm worried that I might lose another one again so I just used my common sense and figure out that milk contains calcium that can help any bone issue, so even if it's not proven, it's not that risk because milk is natural and whatever happens there it will be fine, cuz' if u worry nitrates then just water change, if too much potassium that can burn polyps then water change and the natural calcium that we intake is the same as corals' and the thing why we keep doubting maybe theirs are dif. Because yes they use the same calcium as ours but becomes a compound when intaken , so that's it dude, hope you keep updated with my experiment, tnx.

SECOND DAY!

It's already the second day of dosing milk, just added my phytos to main tank and refugium.(still no seen difference)

Other clarification: I still don't have fish because of previous ich outbreak caused by a blue hippo tang and Affected my other fishes and still runnin' my second week from two months remaining fishless(ich infestation doesn't affect inverts including corals)

BC is fine(still opening), zoanthids, torch(still inflating), and others are also fine.(other inverts have no side effects)

This is just food particle feeding. Small particles like the reef has. The more, the better. However there is a reason to think that using reef particles like pods, blended shrimp, etc, might be more accepted by the corals.

Main point is to keep the particles in the water 24/7. And especially at night.

3rd day of dosing milk

They all look good, and the colors are more vibrant than ever, my bubble coral has been doing better and expands widely, not like any other times that I've been seeing it since I decided to dose milk, so far there are some color changes, my bubble coral's been eating well, and no bad side effects appearing. Hope u guys keep being updated. Tnx.IMG20180420130217.thumb.jpg.4a4a4fe310d3b8821c626f7ca343aced.jpgIMG20180420130234.thumb.jpg.e123a40a14ed281f042086269cba6fa8.jpgIMG20180420130243.thumb.jpg.7cce5e4fbca070a1708c6b66f11d4b24.jpgIMG20180420130259.thumb.jpg.a092bba6763180ea4522ff727a830252.jpg

BEFORE AND AFTER of dosing milk since 1st day to 3rd day.

Info: I've been dosing 1ml milk for my 10 gallon tank.

Clarification: no other inverts beside corals have shown bad side effects.Screenshot_2018-04-20-13-35-34-49.thumb.png.5083d92e7cb2ecff10a4d4b2a04e2566.pngScreenshot_2018-04-20-13-35-23-21.thumb.png.4ea07740dd50732c37a0b9a0f53f3221.pngScreenshot_2018-04-20-13-35-27-26.thumb.png.cbcd0fcab2fb1281e374696c296f3e9b.pngScreenshot_2018-04-20-13-35-30-63.thumb.png.b037031316692912e7b306b5b8407441.pngScreenshot_2018-04-20-13-47-59-82.thumb.png.415308d7a62b63fd9af4d04b1c6f72a4.png

So we can say milk is working

I cannot assure u dude, but as you can see that there are some difference happened to my corals, and there are no other things that I've added beside milk, actually I was worried that my corals might die because of their weak bone structure and clearly been fading its color, but fortunately there is a big change after dosing milk, and I believe that it works.

Keep updated for my next replies.tnx.
