  1. A Few Zoas For Sale or Trade

    Nice meeting you Nathan. Zoas opened up within 20 mins after putting them in tank. They look great!
  2. What is this and how do you get rid of

    On Reef2Reef there is a lot of discussion on this. I fought this for a couple of months, and with flow and getting my nitrates between 2 and 5ppm and Phosphates around 0.03, finally beat it. Good Luck

    I have been ordering from them for a couple of years and never a problem.
  4. Corals For Sale

    Nice meeting you also Ken! The corals colored up almost immediately when I put them in my tank. Most definitely want a piece of the Titan. Thanks again Ken.

    Thanks for the link. I have tried the vibrant for a little bit of hair algae with no luck.

  12. Mike, If I hold function button in it will stop flashing but starts back after releasing button. Tried what you suggested, but still flashing. Everything is working OK, so I kinda ignore it now. Thanks
  13. One other option to raise cal., alk, and ph would be to use Kalkwasser which is pickling lime. You can buy at Walmart or most grocery stores. Mix one teaspoon per gallon of RO/DI water and top off with it. 5 dollars of this would last you a long time. It's chemical name is Calcium Hydroxide. You will need to test your water to make sure your Ph doesn't go high though. Make sure that you don't buy pickling spices instead of pickling lime.
  14. Yes put in pan or baking dish. It doesn't hurt to go a little bit longer on time. By baking it, it helps get the CO2 out of your water which raises Ph. Kinda does the same thing as running a CO2 scrubber on your skimmer.
  15. I agree about the nitrates being way to high. My tank is currently running a little less than 8 on the ph, but have real good growth with the SPS and LPS. I just started recently dosing Kalkwasser through the ATO to raise my PH. Are you baking the baking soda before dosing? By baking it in oven will help increase PH more so than regular baking soda. The recipe is 2-1/4 cups of baking soda baked at 300 degrees for about and hour. Mix with 1 gallon of RO/DI. There are some good articles on the Reef 2 Reef forum explaining this.
