365 Day Challenge: 1G Office Ocean

Update as of 22/07/2020

 

Feeding day today - the tank will be getting a good hit of reef roids! Everything's looking happy except the rasta zoas - I'm not sure what their issue is to be honest. No sign of pests etc. It could be that they're repeatedly annoyed by the shrimp or are irritated by some other water parameter. I need to get around to checking the nitrates again to make sure they're not too low, but everything else seems nicely extended and happy. Not sure, but not going to sweat it.

 

I'll post the final July FTS in a week's time, I'm hoping the GSP on the left will have hit the overflow by then. Likewise I'm hoping to swap out the middle mushroom with a super bright uranium bounce shroom which is resting in my nano, but I need to get it to attach to some rubble first (and it's taking it's sweet time!) 🙂

It's been two weeks since the tank had it's last water change and the shrooms down the bottom are starting to look a little grumpy, so it's probably about time they had some of the fresh stuff! The rastas continue to be pissed off (as well as the goblin's fire zoas, on and off) and I've decided it's probably down to tank temperature, as other params are spot on - it's so warm in our little flat that even in the cooler weather the tank consistently runs around 29 degrees C (84 F for you Americans out there). No doubt the tank will be glad when some cooler autumn weather finally arrives.

 

All good otherwise - the tank's had plenty of phyto and reef roids this week and it's got a nice copepod bloom as a result. Nitrates sat at 7.5ppm, which is pretty choice I think!

I had the same issue with my Pico, at the end i just left it at 28C (82.5F) seemed to work well. Fairly sure that the consistency of the temperature is more important then the temperature itself, to a certain degree anyway

Yeah I think you could be right there mate, the shrooms and GSP have definitely just adapted to a warmer temp. The zoas have oddly enough cheered up in the past few days, not really sure why but I've been adding phyto this week and I've got plenty of algae on the glass now - maybe they just like it dirty!!!
