    Aqua One 35 Nano Tank

    Can some identify what this is in the back of my all in one aquarium. I believe it may be some kind of songs am I right ?

    AI Prime HD Settings for 10G Tank

    I would use the ones I like but they are on too long and I'm unsure how to reduce time

    AI Prime HD Settings for 10G Tank

    Can anyone recommend a light setting for my AI Prime HD over a 10g tank. If used others but they are either on too long or have large amount of green, red and white which is causing hair algae issues. Would be much appreciated if someone could send me one. Thanks

    Acan and Goniopora Not Opening

    Thanks for the advise iv started dosing 1ml of 3% peroxide daily reduced my lighting schedule and light intensity and iv noticed all of my dinos have gone now. Iv bought the ati nano assential and I am just calculating how much of my parameters my tank is using at the moment before starting to dose. The ati nano assential is a two part so presume it is something similar to what you where talking about. The only issue I'm currently having atm is due to me stopping water changes and removing my refugium my nitrates are between 30-40 and I don't want to do a big water change because I believe that's what causes my dinos in the first place removing nutrients too fast. I'm going mix some saltwater up tomorrow and start carrying out some small water changes.

    Acan and Goniopora Not Opening

    My tank consumes a lot of calcium, magnesium and alkalinity making it almost impossible to keep stable also when I use ati nano assentials is seems to be making my dino issue worse. I thinks it something to do with the trace elements in it. Iv currently got all my corals on frags plugs on a frag rack as if only got my dino issue on the sand bed and to try remove it I use a turkey blaster daily to let my filter floss capture it. Also my goni and acan are not opening up at all now but I think this is because I have stopped water changes causing my nitrate to go up to 40ppm as a way of getting rid of the dinos. I'm going to do a water change today to lower it because most if my dinos have gone since dosing hydrogen peroxide, doing a 5 day blackout and blowing the dinos of the sand.

    If just got one jebao sw4 peacemaker pointing towards the surface of the water. If tried everywhere in the tank but the coral seems to be getting worse.

    Acan and Goniopora Not Opening

    If had two acan frags, a Goniopora frag and a few different zoanthid frags in my tank for a few months now and I'm unable to be the Goniopora or acans to open. The zoanthid have no problem but iv tried many things such as feeding reef roids, constantly testing the water quality, placing the coral in different spots but still no luck. They both sometimes start to open but close after a few hours. From testing my water if seen that each day my parameters change a lot and have been doing ati nano assential to try keep my parameters in check but it seems to be very hard to do so. The tank is a aqua one and is only 35l. Also when I dose reef roids my nitrate spike so I tend to not feed this. Another issue isbthat I'm suffering from dinoflagellates could this be the issue ? My acans is now showing a lot of it skeleton aswell.

    I just did the 3 day blackout and I believe it made them worse. If just got some marine pure plate to improve my beneficial bacteria so I'll try that

    What would you say is the best protocol when dealing with dinos

    If covered my whole tank up and I'm doing a three day blackout to see what is happening iv also purchased a marine pure plate to increase area for beneficial bacteria to populate

    I'm pretty sure it is, it's brown has bubbles in it and is like stringy of the sand bed. I also believe this could be the cause of my coral not opening properly due to the toxin dinos release

    Could I possibly have dinos due to have 0 phosphates. Because when I measure phosphate it's always zero. However, I have GHA aswell consuming the phosphate and I run gfo in a media reactor.

    Can hydrogen peroxide be used without a skimmer and I know if had them for ages now I blow the sand bit in a day they are back.

    Finally upgraded my lighting to an ai prime hd. Also ended up removing the hob refugium as I have a rodi system now so it is easier to do water changes. However, I am suffering with dinoflagelates and hair algae. I added a clean up crew so all of the hair algae is nearly gone. I'm also now running rowaphos in a media bag and im hoping to install a protein skimmer and media reactor soon. Does anyone have any advise on getting rid of dinoflagelates ?
