    Question Foam In The Refugium

    Found this on another site "Its caused from having your overflow deep into the water and water going down and bubbling up the same as a skimmer." so you're overflow is to far underwater from what i read up.

    That wrasse is a pain and never stops moving! The nero is neato! at 1% it still moves over 900 gallons an hour! So it's my nighttime setting to give everything a nice break from the ramp up and down form 1000-1500 so there's tons of flow now! My only complaint about the nero is the setting of...

    Done buying fish from my lfs I've had 2 wrasse die in my qt from them. And they were so pretty! It's not the first time I think their supplier is just bad. So now I'll have to drive an extra 45 min in traffic to another store for fish.

    Yeah, agreed. I'm going to go buy some reef crystals today after work and do a water change tomorrow. I'll just use the rest of the salt I have on the small frag tank until it's all gone that way I'm not just tossing a newish box. Since the frag tank just has shrooms and zoas.

    What i posted is the normal amount but I didn't test before I did a large water change when things started going south, so I don't really have anything to compare to when it was bad but i do know that I had a large alk change. so that is a big reason why the acro are dying.

    uhm without knowing the salinity of the current water if you change that large of an amount change can cause the animal to go into shock and kill it.

    What To Use For Water

    Why not use the bathroom sink cables under the sink and directly connect into the water line and use a ball valve to send water to the rodi unit under the sink? That's what i used. cost me a couple $$ from home depot and done. Just make sure you turn it off or you flood the place....

    Help Moray Eel

    Yeah it will be fine for a temp housing situation . But not a long term. As the tap waters have dissolved solids in them and make the water quality go down every water change. But for now use tap water and ocean salt and use a refractometer if you have one.
