Chadwick405 Posted February 1, 2009 Share Posted February 1, 2009 Thank you guys for all of the feedback on my previous post, about the bio balls. I have decided to go ahead and remove them. I figure since I am only a couple of months in, now would be the perfect time to do it. I just had one of my fish die, so I also have a lighter bio load, he committed suicide and jumped into the back, I ordered a fish saver (Thanks for the design stevieT). I right now only have 1 clown fish, so he should be a good fish to do it with. I have 3 mushrooms and small zoanthid colony. All parameters as of right now show 0. As mentioned in my previous post I should remove the bio balls about a handful per weekly water change, until gone. Now I have seen many DIY for refugium building, but I am confused about how the water levels will work. The 2nd chamber stock works like a drip way, so how on earth is this changed to a full water level refugium, is it by adding more flow by making that spillway larger? I have chemi-pure in chamber 3 right now, I guess when all said and done I will move it to chamber 1 with the heater. Now back to the refugium, I guess I should just put chaeto in there with a submersible light, and then put filter floss above on top of some egg crate. What would you guys recommend? I have a maxi-jet 900 in the sump now and a koralina nano in the tank. I would also really like to thank everyone for all of the support and ideas, this forum has been very beneficial to my first saltwater aquarium experience. Edit: I also forgot to mention I have 15lbs of LR. Link to comment
