    Yes I was concerned about my phosphates being high . They where .013ppm and 0.17 I got 2 reading from my Hanna test kit also I use RODI with reef crystals and I have 4 hermits and a nassarius snail they are very tiny tho It happend over night it’s all over my sand and rock it’s a mix of light green and brown

    Hey everyone I just recently had an algae outbreak I just did a water change yesterday and it seemed to make it worst not sure where all this algae came from looks like a diatom bloom , anyways could it be because I recently started running a refugium light in the back of my tank to grow cheato ? Anyways what should my next step be ? I’m going to test my water I turn my whites on so everyone can see thanks everyone 🙂

    When are phosphates too high ?

    They said my phosphates where good and said about 2 or 4 using api test kits wasn’t sure what they meant but they said I was fine

    When are phosphates too high ?

    I did notice some algae on my rock that’s the closest to the light it was green and flat but I had reds on my hydra 26 I have now turned off the reds on my light completely I also just installed a Cheato algae in a phosphate 150 reactor with a reverse cycle on a night but I’m going to do a 20 percent water change tomorrow all the coral doing great and fish
  9. So I have been using my new Hanna checker and I have been getting a reading of 0.13ppm and I also got a reading of 0.17 testing more then once as it difficult to pour the reagent in the vile is my phosphate too high ? I am doing a water change tomorrow btw also I feed my fish mysis shrimp and formula 2 I also when to my lfs and they tested phosphates using api and they said that my phosphates were fine

    Ai Hydra 26Hd settings? For mixed reef

    Thanks for your feedback . Do you think as long as your watts make a certain number or using enough power it should support corals ?
  12. Hey everyone I was wondering what setting does everyone run there ai hydra settings at ? For successful coral growth I’ll post my settings I have these setting because I like the color and running them at 42 watts is at about 40-50 percent of full power from what I understand ?

    Rising salinity level in tank too fast ?

    Thank you I hope all goes well with my water change tomorrow 🙂
  14. If I rise my salinity in my tank from 1.023 to 1.025 with a 30% water change will that stress my fish or corals ?
  15. Thanks so much that really gives me food for thought ! How much percent of water do you change and how often ?
