“Dirty 30” mushroom tank

Recommended Posts

reefhound

So I decided to keep it simple..

on its second week...

i cycled “reactor” media with quick start in a bucket prior to adding to the tank... expected a little bit of a phosphate rise and got one..

 

the first week I ran Chemiclean elite, but decided the GFO was causing more harm than the phosphates would so I pulled it..

 

Animals were much happier when I pulled it.
