I broke off some coraline rock with a chivel and put it in the top to spread some coraline.


Diatom bloom started two days ago


Will get a hermit and some snails tommorrow to eat the algea


My sump cracked in the bottom due to how I had it setup but I fixed it with silicone and moved it correctly.

Yeah I've been playing around with alkalinity and calcium trying to get a consistent dosing before i add corals.

I will put some sps uo top and on some rocks high on my overflow then I'm gonna lps in the middle with some mushrooms leathers and zoathinds on the bottom.


Right now I'm adding about 1ml of alk per day to the system and my alks good But my calcium is still kinda up and down. I think I need to lower it to .75 ml from 1 but this will get figured out this week.




77 degress

sal 1.024

ph 8.1

no3 0.10

no2 0.25


cal 450

alk 185


still a bit of nitrate will probly be good after next weeks water changes and I'll some corals.
