Ooo, that's tough to say.... The valida has always sat Utrecht.y under the sol so "intense" lighting or sure.... I'd say a big part is water quality....

 

 

Figured that.

 

I am prolly back at too little nutrients. Will start feeding heavier.

 

thanks,

Ya... I do use phosban along with chemipure elite, chaeto, and skimmer, so my phosphates r always 0.... But even softies are happy.... I dose a lot of Phyto daily n oyster feast overnight......

 

I don't check my nitrates but corals tell the tale...

Do you ever have a problem with the chemipure elite an the GFO being counter productive since they are both with GFO?

Tron....I think I may switch to phosban also since its alumnium based. Apparently the protozoa that causes pinched mantle is iron dependent....and guess what gfo leaches? Lol

Oh I'm going to - especially after confirming through reading that most people that have had pinched mantle run gfo....and others with successful clam keeping run an aluminum based phosphate binder or none at all. There's a huge article about pinched mantle on reef frontiers...anyway as always your tank is gorgeous tron...

I really want a PiCo but they don't make em my size lol

I'm gonna wait until things color up. I went through a crash from running too much gfo. Some pieces went through rtn so I either had to frag them or toss em. Anyhow, Picked up a red planet mili and forest fire digi the other day--glows like a high lighter under the AI unit.

Hope ya have a good Easter bro! Side ? How often do you change out your filter floss? Once a

Week... Every other day? I think that maybe a source of my nitrates... Gonna Start changing every other day instead of twice a week.

Floss? Like once a week. I wait til it's REALLLLLY gunked up and water flows over it and not through it. But my chaeto and slimmer have really come alive lately. Even with daily Phyto (day) & oyster feasts (overnight) feeding my nitrates are never an issue.

 

Highly doubt it's ur floss... Check ur chemical filtration

I am a rookie lol. If I wanna go 150mph, I have my car... But $300 a month in gas is not cool.

 

The bike will b for economy & fun. I know.... Oxymoron lol
