  1. Maybe I'm old fashion, but maybe more frequent, smaller water changes might also help...
  2. You only do 100% wc?
  3. 4 months since your last WC?
  4. Maybe send off a triton test, see if snubbing weird comes up.
  5. Artfully acrylic screen top, on Ky Red Sea reefer nano
  6. Be very careful, I had this happens and the file eventually died of starvation/intestinal obstruction
  7. My RO buddy is not really workong very well and I think I just need to get s better unit. I saw the Koolermax AR-122 6-stage RO+DI Aquarium Reef RO system 80 to 120 GPD unit on Amazon and was wondering if anyone has any experience with it? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00U1TPBZY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_IsCZybHGPNZT9
  8. You could also get a rough estimate of the co2 levels in your home by placing an air stone in 1 gal of Rodi water, leting it run overnight and then testing the ph and alkalinity of the water the next day. If there is significant CO2 in the air, you would expect a PH drop and some conversion on CO2 to carbonic acid
  9. This is the CO2 scrubber I use
  10. Well I came home last night and found my chalk bass dead on the sand..... was healthy and happy the day before..... not quite sure what happened.
  11. Updates: i retested my Ca last night and it was 543, so I turned off my doser channel for it. My ALk is 8.26 dKH. I also retested my NO3 and it was 0.25 after dosing 3 ml of KNO3 solution the day before, so I think I will continue to dose 3ml per day or ever other day. My corals seem to be much happier now that there is detectable NO3. My PO4 has also dropped to 0.04 frol 0.13.
  12. The tubing/top off container might be part of it, I actually know a few people who replace all of their tubing yearly for that exact reason.... I always thought they were nuts....
  13. This is what I use and it works well... may be easier that having to go to the LFS to get water....
  14. Yes mine is red with purple legs
  15. NEVER unfiltered tap water!!!!! I use Rodi tap water. I also have to replace my sediment filter monthly.
