Steve's Mixed Reef IM Fusion 30L - Baby Acans in the House

Recommended Posts

I've officially given up on the stock mesh top.  Ordered the 1/8" clear netting from BRS and will replace the stock stuff next week.  I loved the way it looked but just feel like it is blocking too much light.  I have the Nanobox approaching deathstar mode and just am not seeing the reaction from the corals I would expect (pretty much feel they should be balled up in the fetal position at this point).  Guess next week I'll swap the mesh and back the light down a little and see how everything does.

Looking at my BRS account just now.   

 

Is this normal?  I'm going with yes...maybe 🙂

Got new test kits for nitrates and phosphates today. 

 

Phosphates .04ppm

Nitrates 3ppm

 

I expected phosphates to read lower, as I have the chaeto light running 17 hrs each day and have virtually no visible algae in the display, despite the frequent feedings.  TBH I'm not completely sure how to interpret these results. I do know my sps aren't coloring up the way I had hoped.  I do believe the mesh top is playing a role by blocking a fair amount of light and now I am wondering nutrient levels could be playing a role as well.

Stock netting is junk.

I bought some reef chili last night from them to make myself feel better after the power outage.
