Hi all, I'm new to this forum and new to marine tank. This is my first post and apologies if I'm not posting it correctly. To start off with, like to share my 1.3 ft Nano tank. Looking at upgrading soon :)

Yes! I saw that too, not sure where did it come from? I do 20% wc weekly (tap water with conditioner). Attached is the test kit I use for Po3/4 measure. Not sure how to read absolute. It's this normal?

The test kit u using doesn't test for really low levels of po4.(>0.1ppm). For marine po4 @0.2ppm is enuff to trigger nuisance algae growth.

Thanks bro for the encouragements. Going to source for a RODI to bring down the phosphate before Alage go out of control. Any good recommendations?

Nice tank bro~! You can check out the Zero rodi unit at madpetz or the crystal di unit. These 2 are the more commonly used ones. You should get one if you are really getting an upgrade soon. As for now, stop using tap water and go get the life distilled water for your water change, 12 bottles of 1.5 litres for $6 only. I have been using it for the past 9 months, so far so good

As for your po4 test kits, go for the hanna checker, the most accurate po4 test kit imo..

Reef on~! :thumbsup:

Just have to keep reefing... cant stop now~!

Consider also Rowaphos to help bring your po4 down. Rodi helps remove from tapwater however the food we feed our animals will also increase your po4 and remember u still have no3 to deal with :)
