    Week 2 Giveaway, Pods and Phyto!

    @dvs1986 bahaha... @Pod Your Reef it tasted like a mixture of sour fish ass with a zest of saltiness. I think I just lost my appetite..

    Week 2 Giveaway, Pods and Phyto!

    My most embarrassing moment in reefing was trying to frag my frogspawn for the first time ever with a dremel. Only wore eye protection and had my mouth open... the end result? Had a mouth full of frogspawn fragging splatter juice right down my face into my mouth. Instant gag reflex from the taste that I will never forget...

    Just from first glance it looks like you don't have the skimmer properly dialed in. It looks like you are skimming too wet and your bubble line is too high thus your bubbles are overflowing out too much. Try having your valve opened all the way and slowly adjust it. See Billy Pipe's video for protein skimmer tuning:

    It does drop fit right into the IM25 without the brackets. Here's my unboxing video of it if you're curious of how it looks. I just got it last week so it's still breaking in but i'll do an update video on it in a few weeks. If you check out my instagram pics ( @mightynanotank ) I've posted pics of it skimming during the break in period so far. @nickyJ hey - does your skimmer make a low helicopter'ish sound? I've had that happen to me a few times. I had to turn it off and blow into the air intake and it seemed to have fix it, but will make that helicopter'ish sound every now and again.

    I was able to put would shimmies right below my wood top which filled the space. Why not just cut a black yoga mat to size and lay it underneath? That should help fill the space as you fill the tank.

    I picked up Icecap's K1 nano skimmers too. I hope it works well.

    How much dkh drop warrants dosing?

    Everyone runs their tanks differently with great success. I personally believe in keeping Alk as humanly stable as you can with either hand dosing or utilizing dosers. So, say in Scenario 1-3, the Alk is 7.7 any fluctuation day to day is unacceptable for me, therefore I would dose in all 3 scenarios.

    ATO nano suggestions

    Smart Micro ATO. Hands down the best for nano tanks.
  12. Yeah... I only made it to adding up tank, heater, and lights.... then decided to stop lol. I think I could've leased a Porsche 911 turbo by now.

    @805NanoReef I was using the Custom AB+ setting that BRStv did a video on. Off the top of my head... it was something like UV, V, = 85% .... RB = 79% , B = 80%.... G/R = 4%.... W = 16% 1 hour ramp up and 1 hour ramp down, 8 hour day. Keep in mind though, I started off very conservatively and slowly worked my way up increasing just by 2% each week. So if you have low light corals you might want to half the UV,V,RB,B channels to begin with and work your way up.

    You are going to be in loveeeeee with your tank. I was using a single AI Prime HD, then added a second one. Decided to go overkill so I have Radion XR30W Pro Gen4 over it now.

    Jebao SW-2

    Exactly what I did over the weekend. Tossed out my SW-2 and upgraded to a MP10QD. Loving it. World of a difference in variation of flow.
