Hey Graham; Im on day 22 now; still only have the CUC in there; hesitant to add corals as still some trace of phosphates.

But hope to catch some fish from existing setup to move over soon.

By the way what way are you running the MP40? Which mode is best?

Thanks mate; time does fly by indeed! :)

I will definitely move some fish (if I can catch those f*"kers! :lol: ) and corals next week if only to try coral wise; how they fare in there. Can see diatom getting lesser by the day.

So much to move from one tank to another!

Setting up the MP40 as we speak so trying to see what mode etc to go with it.

Hi Keith, thanks for input, I can't wait to move things over as well! :)

So reef crest mode seems to be the most popular I see!

That green plate is lovely Andrew! And so is the last monti with the red polyps

Pop that red plate monti into your new tank bud and test it out bud

What are your cal,alk,no3 and p04 levels?

Nitrate at 1-2 using D&D while phosphates in 30s using Hanna ULR, which is 0.09-0.1 :? This was few days ago, will check again tomorrow. I thought of moving corals over when I get it to within around 0.03.

Did first zeostones exchange today, changed out 50% and topped up to 0.9 litres. I used less than the recommended stones the last time, got confused by converting kgs to litres and vice versa :cry:

That might explain why my nutrients not coming down fast enough. Looking forward to moving some corals over next week fingers crossed.
