Fine tuning it and making a container would be a project haha, is it the reef glass nano? It would look great in your tank, all bubling and shiny.
I think my problem with GHA could also be contributed to residual phosphates leaking from my base rock that I didn't test for. It cured for over a month during the cycle but maybe I didn't export enough through water changes.NART said:Nanologist yeah. Ran out of time today so I'll have to get to it tomorrow. Strangely enough Ammonia is 0. Really curious of the phosphates now...
Insane!NART said:Good move on the Hanna Checkers. I love using my Alk Hanna. Really easy to use.
So just to give y'all an idea of my chaeto... this is from about 3 weeks of growth and this is just from my smaller chaeto chamber.
I utilize the over flow (smaller) chamber and the bigger) media chamber to grow chaeto. I usually trI'm about 1/2 to 1/4 of it off... this is the result of trimming about 1/2 my chaeto
I have the ULR one and love it.Nanologist said:I love testing and don't think it's boring at all, but I'm a nerd!
Decided to order this based off one of your recent purchases and the GHA in my tank:
I seriously just let out the largest sigh of relief in my life...stella1979 said:Yes! I'm finally back. Missed you guys!!! Cell service is extremely spotty and power is out. Will update better when I can, but the house is ok and we have a car battery hooked up to the reef tank.
OMGosh! So great to hear!stella1979 said:Yes! I'm finally back. Missed you guys!!! Cell service is extremely spotty and power is out. Will update better when I can, but the house is ok and we have a car battery hooked up to the reef tank.
Actually I've heard the Hanna isn't all that accurate on the calc. I'd go salifert personally. Hanna for Alk and phos (ULR). I use salifert for nitrate, calc and mag.NART said:Nanologist Yeah... I expected curing PukanI will take a while. Even on BRStv they made an episode on curing the PukanI with 3 different methods and it still took a month or two.
It's okay though, gives me time to work on the frag tank.
grantm91 If you get a Phosphate test kit down the road... if I were you, I would opt for the Hanna checkers. My Red Sea Phos test kit is sometimes quite challenging to tell the colors apart. I think I am going to invest in a Hanna Calcium and Phosphate checker soon.
Btw - these shirts describes us perfectly...
I bought this one from MACNA
Actually the Tapatalk app seems broken. Pics show up as links and there are all of these auto links (in blue) added in. Also, many posts are showing up doubled. Look at my last quote of Nart. His post was doubled.Coradee said:Ooh you're right it seems a couple are missing, that is odd.
I'll go have a look at some other threads to see if maybe there's a general glitch or just this one, brb
NART It does look like it's just this thread for some reason, maybe the missing ones will reappear at some point, spooky!
That makes total sense, but why so much?! What are you testing?! My tests use 5ml (if I use an API test for something), 2ml, 2 use 1ml and 2 use 10ml.NART said:Coradee Appreciate you taking a look at it. Thank you.
thesoulpatch hahaha... It's my little mason jar of fresh saltwater that I have to put back in the tank when I do a large scale water tests. Not often, but some times I'll draw anywhere from 50-100 ml of tank water to run tests so I don't like to inadvertently kick on my ATO to fill up the tank since I use Kalkwasser in my top off water.
You too! Royal Purple has been my favorite color since high school. It was just plain green before that... but I don't think I gave it much thought until art classes and such in high school. That's when I learned about purple being the color for royalty because it's the most expensive color to make. It was originally made from a "species of sea snail now known as Bolinus brandaris, and it was so exceedingly rare that it became worth its weight in gold."stella1979 said:I've loved the color purple my whole life, but I am beginning to hate it these days.. stupid nitrites!
