Start again from disaster - pest wipe out


Recommended Posts

My previous tank was double hit by first aefw, follow by unknown redbug like pest. Lost over 30 plus big colonies with me for years.

Start all over again. Decide most start from frag and mini colony with proper dip and quarantine tank.

Still a young tank of 4 months. Grow under cluster of diy led specially order from tb. 10w chips of 12k, 400 - 490nm. Total of 400w of led over 4 feet. Old sch beckett, gyre 150 and 2 tunze. 3 channel dosing

So far result is good. The picture is from crappy note 4. Will update once i got time to setup my slr. Some algae problem on pipe and glass due to my effort to try to heavy feed to bring up nutrient. Sps a bit pale out of my liking
