    Skimmer recommendations

    Yeah I do 5 gal water changes weekly, sometimes biweekly if Iv been busy. I’m just always looking for the best way to maintain good parameters. Iv had trouble keeping SPS corals in the past. I have a monti that is doing fine but lost any others Iv tried. Softies have had no issues.

    Skimmer recommendations

    I tried to turn the middle chamber into a refugium but the chaeto kept breaking down. Have any thoughts? The media basket was top: sponge filter, middle: Chaeto, bottom: carbon. With an LED light on the back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Skimmer recommendations

    Hi, I have a 29gal bio cube that has been running for about 4 years. I’m considering adding a protein skimmer. Anyone have good recommendations? I have a chamber available but Could be a hang on back I don’t care as long as it’s quite. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I also like your initial set up. There’s an episode on YouTube from BRS about aquascaping that’s got some pretty helpful tips and suggestions. If you haven’t seen it yet check it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ALGAE PROBLEM

    Origami is right. The tank is young and will go through a few stages within the first year or so. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ALGAE PROBLEM

    At about 3 months my tank (29 gal bio cube) had an algae boom. After regular weekly WC, feeding regulation, and I went from 11 h light cycle to a 9 h. The tank settled after about 2 months. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bio cube refug help?

    Man I like my fish to much to just get rid of them. Definitely don't have space for another tank. I like the suggestion though, go big and get it done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bio cube refug help?

    My phosphates are high and I'd like to try keeping SPS and start building more pods so I can get a madrain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No dosing but I'll occasionally use a PH buffer. just 5 gal WC with Brightwell neon marine salt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sorry to hear about your set up. I would also recommend R2R much wider user base. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
