How's your phyto culturing coming along ? Did you manage to grow it thicker in color ?

OK so far to get the culture dark green :)

Keeping multiple cultures going in case one of them crash.

 

The table is so cluttered now. Also trying to culture bottom dwelling Tisbe pods. They are supposedly better than tigger pods (which are mostly free swimming) for Mandarins and other finicky eaters.

Oh... sorry to hear that. What were the symptoms before it died?

I'm running my tank around 26-27.5 degC. Yours?

It was super active, always the first to chiong for food when I fed but during the last few weeks, it stopped coming for food and became skinnier before it perished.

When I got it I adjusted my tank to run at about 24 degs

How's your zoas frag tank doing. Picture please :)


Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app

Nothing new in the Zoa tank. Using it more to host some baby clown fishes. Planning to use it as a quarantine tank for an AT when the right one comes along.

Equipment maintenance weekend.

Clean up the dust and pet fur from the Hydra light fixtures. Easy to access the fan blades. Just lift the plastic cover. No tools required :)

And wipe away the splash stains especially those on the lens.

Work in progress. 

Got an ATO reservoir from CR Aquarium. Waiting for the optical float switches to arrive.

Nice setup!... where did you get your phyto culture from?

Thank you!!
I live in the north of Spain near France.
I live in La Rioja state, is well known for the elaboration of red wine.

I'm going to test your setup, I was running one at the most blues, but the tank looked very blue

Do you get good growth with whites at 40-30?
The setup was from a Brazilian reef, June Melo has a very nice tank of acropores
