the question of where the doors go. by bandraoi dúchasach on 16 Jul 2009 01:26

2. The bio pellet reactor had clumped and the biopellets were not tumbling. I checked all the valves and it was open full. I then tried removing the flow valve from the line (not needed if on full) and that was the extra movement needed to start tumbling again!

3. The sand bed needs a little more agitation (shallow sand bed) so I have introduced a blue cheeked goby and change the filter sock every couple of days.

I let this run for a week, did a 10% water change and the socks are good and filthy, skimmer working overtime for a few days and phosphate tests 0.3, 0.1, and now 0.

This has allowed me to think about improving the corals colouration, I have started the red sea colour supplements and energy supplement. I am three days in and...
