    Should calibrate refractometer with calibration fluid. Stay unburdened. Get a Milwaukee digital refractometer
  2. Algae reactor mush problem

    Hmm I run a reverse light cycle,so it happens when the lights are on. I cleaned the reactor and pump so flow is better. My plan is to go back to chaeto and test nitrate levels. If that doesn't work I will look into chelated iron and manganese
  3. Algae reactor mush problem

    Yeah my skimmer pulled way more gunk than normal but no harm to corals . I assume. Mush is almost clear, happenes quick overnight.
  4. Help me out, I have been running an algae reactor since Feb. chaetomorpha grows great. I remove a bunch every other week. After about two months it turns to mush. Replaced it same thing happened.. so I tried using grape calupera which grows in my tank, same deal grows great then turns to mush.grape calupera is fine in my display. Low flow in reactor?? Crappy led strips from marine depot? Or some element is depleted?
  5. Testing for Salinity in aquarium

    I have the Brs and Milwaukee. I prefer the milwaukee . My milwaukee has only given me wonky readings when the battery is low. Brs works fine if I calibrate it every time.
