    MrObscura's Nuvo 10 Some Tweaks

    Weekly maintaince day. Unfortunately, things aren't great. A number of corals have decided not to really open up the past 2 days and I just noticed my tort and tenuis have a bit of tissue loss on the tips. I don't know what the issue is, tested everything and it's all in line. I'm also battling a bit of cyano. Only change recently was a slight modification to lighting, but it was really just aesthetic and shouldnt have had any effect on the tank. Anyway, no new pics, because, well tanks not exactly looking pic worthy.
  2. I mean, as long as it's not freezing the bacteria will do their thing, but the lower the temp the slower the process.
  3. Yea, but lower temps will slow the process as mentioned. Granted if your room temp is 65+ it probably won't make much difference.

    MIcoast's IM30L - 12/9 photo dump

    Looks like nauti spiral.
  5. I change my chemi blue every 4 weeks. I don't even really use it for reducing nutrients as waterchanges and proper husbandry keep things inline, but more for peace of mind just in case contaminates get into the tank or there's a sudden enexpected spike of nutrients. Polyfilter seems unnecessary to me and seems to be used more in an emergency to get high levels down, not something used regularly . I don't see a need for it and definitely wouldnt use both. Don't worry about a little phos and Nitrate.

    Dead Clown fish

    The lack of coraline isn't going to result in death, dry rock will look dead for some time after a bio filter has been established. If there was no clear signs or symptoms and water Params are inline there's really no way to know. Was this clown smaller than the other and how did they get along? And sometimes fish just die due to no fault of the Keeper. Could be bad stock, compromised immune system, etc. Wait and see how your other one does and if/when you decide to get another make sure it's a small juvenile so that there's a better chance of them getting along, since your current one is or will be female. Oh what size tank do you have?

    Loading AI Prime Preset?

    I figured it out. It was an email attachment and when I hard pressed it I was able to open it with the ai app.

    Les Bon Tanks Rouler

    I thought about posting a deleted, extended version of the foot scene. Even more accurate, but I'm not sure about the forums stance on NSFW material and didn't want to risk a bann hammer. 😆

    And that putting it nicely, I think of it kind of like this...

    Not sweepers but they can do this... And anything within 6 inches or so is at risk.

    If you have any other corals nearby, I'd watch out.

    They said to modified the start and end times as needed and that the white period could be shifted based on preference. But all of their tanks run this way, with Whites first and then just blues, and I like the just blue look, so I figured if it ain't broke don't fix it and just changed the sunrise/sunset times.

    After 4 hours of the peak settings above red, green, and white drop to zero with the rest staying at 100% for another 7 hours.

    Made a few more changes, nothing drastic just dome dialing in. I cut out the wave mode on my kps and went with random 24/7, and I've a Also adjusted lighting just a bit more. WWC sent me their ai prime schedule that the run on their display nanos so Im giving that a try. It's still a varient of ab+. I also needed to dose a little Alk to supplement my kalk. I want the tank between 8.5-9 but with just 0.5tsp of kalk in my ato it recently started dropping again. So I bumped it a few points with some fluval Alk I've had on hand just in case. Once I get it back up we're I want it I'll try 1tsp of kalk.
