    🍻 ALCOHOL and RODI maintenance 🍻

    I'm more concerned with why your wrist is bloody. I need to get my rodi unit back. And some beer.

    I still have not got a magnesium test in yet. 2 water changes this week got my alkalinity back up to 7.5, which is better than the 6.9 I dropped to. Calcium is at 475. Nitrates are still registering at 0 and two phosphorus tests showed me 0ppb and 3 ppb, which equals out to about .006 phosphate. The tester acropora I have is now going from boulder shaped to boulder shaped with little growth tips. Candycane is still looking good one day and losing heads the next. Montis still have great polyp extension but losing color. Everything else is doing decent. I'm thinking I'm gonna have to test every day and figure a dosing schedule after that. Also feeding a lot more.

    I do remember people complaining and someone stepping up to tell Albert Theil that he had to make one thread and keep all the little topics confined. And he was atleast helpful, spreading information and was a pioneer of reef keeping. This dude is posting about 17 different theoretical tank ideas and so far hasn't proven to have set any of them up or even done the tiniest bit of research himself.

    I vote all threads on nanoreef must use freedom units. Europeans and Australians always seem to put muricans down for their school systems. Dont make us dummies do conversions.

    Really? How much? I remember actually being surprised how cheap the full sized brute can was when I bought it for rodi at home depot.

    Were by ourselves too, but being in an apartment complex on the first floor with windows I am pretty sure half my neighbors plus the maintenance guys all know around midnight I like to get a drink straight from the container in front of the fridge in my birthday suit. I get filthy at work and sometimes dont want to stand in the shower and scrub for a half hour after being on my feet all day. Solution=clothes come off.

    Bundling up is great for running to the grocery store or even going for a walk. It sucks when you're soaking wet within the first hour of your day and need to strip down to your undershirt to reach your arm into a small space to grab a wire or small screw. I get more red from wind burn in the winter than I do from sunburn in the summer. Texas gets a little hotter than we do up here but humidity is about the same. After a season or two of being down there, i SHOULD get used to it. Plus, it sucks to climb up a fully extended 32 foot ladder to only step onto 6 solid inches of ice.

    Working outside on a daily basis, I can definitely do without winter. :D. I do love me the fall time though.
