    Auto Water Change - 4L Pico

    Hey all, So after 3 years without a tank i'm finally "easing" myself into it with a 4L pico set up plus a few gadgetry things. I live on the coast and the water here although a bit high in nitrates is generally very clean. I'd like to set up two large resovoirs under my pico one for fresh SW which i will drip feed into the sump. At the same rate fresh SW drips in, i'd like system water to drip out the sump into the second resovoir. But how do i match the rates without a peripump £££. Any ideas? Cheers, Aaron

    Dosing and Water Change

    So eventually I am gonna start dosing once I reach a certain amount of corals.. My question is.. When dosing Alk, Cal and Mag to the correct levels.. will a water change be needed monthly? and if so do I re adjust my dosing since i have replenished what im dosing? Im new at this lol Ive read how to calculate how much to dose after testing but not sure what happens after a water change
  4. Hey so I make my own salt water using distilled water and instant ocean. I was curious.. if I do water changes weekly do I have to let the water mix with the instant ocean and my power head for 6 hours every week or is there a way to store water? Just curious, i have no problem doing it every week but wasnt sure if i can let already made water sit. Thanks in advance

    Ebay Peristaltic Pumps

    I am looking to automate my WCs with a peristaltic pump. I have seen some cheap versions on ebay and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them? The pump head itself is a pretty simple mechanism and although not stackable, seems like it will do the job okay. It looks like a replica Masterflex pump. I am curious about the DC motor and gearbox that comes with it. For those of you that have used them, how did they hold up? What sort of RPMs were you seeing in the head of the pump? Example
  6. Thinking of plumbing lines from the rodi/mixing station in the basement to underneath the kitchen sink on the main floor. Terminate with valves and John Guest connectors. Lines: * saltwater * freshwater * drain On water change days bring out 3 extension lines to go from sink to tank. Is this reasonable? Any better ideas? I don’t think I’ll be able to plumb lines from basement directly to tank.

    Water changes vs Supplementing

    So I’ve seen a lot of different opinions on this, but basically I want to hear people’s thoughts on the matter. I started a tank about a year ago and it was an epic fail, so a few months later I took it down. Now im getting ready to restart. Im looking at getting a 50 gallon tank, it’ll be a basic mixed reef nothing too fancy (1-2 SPS, 3-4 LPS, 5ish softies) If i did about a 1 gallon daily water change ((2% daily) 14% weekly) is that enough to not supplement. Also I rather change daily instead of weekly/monthly because if I miss one it’s no big deal, and it’s more consistant for the fish/corals (and partly because if I dont do it daily I’ll slack and it’ll never happen). I really rather not supplement just because it’s all so expensive and complicated. I’ll probably use Red Sea coral pro salt. But I’m open if someone thinks there’s a better one. Let me know! Thank you! -Spencer

    Tank Revamp

    Hi all! This will be my thread for the revamp of my 26 gallon bow front reef. Long story short, I had to move the tank to a new house about 3 months ago, and ever since then it has been very neglected. It seems to be doing decent, as it is currently lightly stocked (IMO). The reason it has been neglected these past few months is that it is in a room full of other stuff, and I haven't been wanting to get all the other stuff in the room soaked. But, now as I have lived here for a while, stuff has slowly moved out of the room and I can now focus my attention to the tank. Here is what I have stocked in the tank ATM: - 2x ocellaris clowns - 1x yellow watchman goby - 1x Emerald crab - 15 or so snails of different variants - 15 or so blue leg hermit crabs - 1x Shrimp Coral: - 1x acan frag that has 2 heads, has been at a standstill for the past couple months, due to the lack of water changes I have a aquaclear 50 and a koralia nano 425 for filtration in the tank. Inside of the AC50 I have some chemipure and polyfilter pad, along with a stock sponge that came with the filter. I just ordered some more chemipure and polyfilter pads to replace the ones I am currently using. I came here for some help on what I can do that will help me out with: A: Getting these small, hard dots of algae that cover all of my glass off B: Getting rid of some bubble algae that I have attached to my acan frags plug C: Increasing the overall health and growth out of my acan What I had in mind was buying about 6 gallons of distilled water(I know, rodi is the way to go, but we don't have a spot for the rodi filter in the new house yet, and I have been topping off with distilled this whole time and highly doubt that is my problem, as I have seen many other nano reefers use it successfully) from the store tomorrow and changing out 6 gallons once a week for the 3-4 weeks and see how it progresses. Also, any recommendations on a reef salt mix to use? I am currently using the generic instant ocean and feel a reef mix will be the way to go when I run out of the mix I currently have. Any recommendations for a water change schedule and salt mix will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Water changes

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and to this saltwater hobby. I have a 24g jbj nano cube with 1 blue damsel 4 turbo and 6 hermit crabs. It's been running for 2 weeks now and the Nitrites are high. I wanted to do water change on it to help lower the nitrites. I add seachem safe ever 24hrs. How much water change do you recommend for this 24 gallon tank? when I'm mixing salt , do i have to match the actual salinity in the tank or it needs to be within the range from the hydrometer? and does the PH matter every time i do WC? any recommendation on how to do it step by step? thank you guys!
