  1. Hey, I had to replace my old ATO sensor and someone recommended me the Hydor Smart Level Control. The issue is that every time my tank refills, the alarm goes off. It looks like that the pump is too quick for the sensor, but not sure what to do. Any recommendations? I opened the thing to see if I could cut the speaker, but I was unable to do so 😊.
  2. Also, it's important that you know the range of values of your salt. Salk like IO tend to have high alkalinity. Sometimes you do a lot to control Alk, but then perform a WC and it goes out of track again.
  3. I am on the same boat here. My Alk consumption is not even, sometimes .50dkh per day and sometimes .25.
  4. No. High alk will estimulate the coral to grow faster and if there is a lack in nutrients, you will see burned tips since the tissue cant keep up with fast growth.
  5. Hahahaha. Let me practice first. Your tank is larger than mine so my lens may not work.
  6. Burned tips due to high alkalinity. Let it drop to 8 and keep it that way.
  7. Love the article! Thanks for sharing.
  8. Is this a good range for reef photography? I got it, but not sure if I should go with 100mm? My camera is not full sensor, so it add more range.
  9. You will have to find the source of the metals in the water. Once you remove it you will need to do a big water change to bring them down. Also, using GFO without a good understanding of your tank needs, will drive everything else out of control and nuke your tank. Your Kalk will help you maintain pH while keeping calcium and alk stable (just dose it all at once, use it as you re-fill evaporation).
  10. Tahitian moon sand... you can ask me anything about it lol, you can take a look at my post: Simply put, take the sand out of your tank and do a 100% water change (please read my post above). The corals that survived didn't have any growth in 10 months... after removing it everything is growing fast!
  11. I would use the the shotglass idea.. but it will take time!
  12. Wow, long time I do not post new pictures! Here are some that I took today 😊. enjoy
  13. Dont go for zero phosphate or zero nitrates... it's even worse.
  14. Awesome!!! Here are some pics. Do you think the UV can be used in an IM fusion 40?
  15. Yes. My tank is low in nutrients and Ive been using carbon dosing too. Ive been dosing nitrates as well, but looks like I need to do some adjustments. Great! There are some articles in the Reef2Reef forum that may help identify them if you can take some pics. Where are you located?
