    Underwater video using go pro

    My go pro has a case on it that allows me to go diving with it. I mount it to a 1/2" dia piece of PVC and just swing it around in the tank. Bruce

    Underwater video using go pro

    I have run the go pro in my tank many times. Here is a video I took right before I eradicated all mushroom style corals from my tank. You can see why in the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCLJAsjHt04&feature=youtu.be Bruce
  4. Remove the rock and pressure wash it. Do not replace the pests. They took over my tank at one point and were very difficult to get rid of.

    Eyepopping colored coral situation

    I have seen many tanks with corals that pop with color not using magic lighting. It often takes time for a coral frag to mature and then color up. The tank also has to have very good, stable parameters and good lighting. Best of luck Bruce

    Calcium reactor flow rate not steadily.

    I have mine set up like this. So it would be on the output. But that is because I do not feed mine with a pump. I think you could put it on either line in your case. Actually, mine is set up like this so I can scrub CO2 and raise pH.

    Calcium reactor flow rate not steadily.

    A peristaltic pump is a good idea. The needle valve will clog over time and flow will be reduced or stopped all together. Here is a link to a detailed article on how I set mine up. https://reefs.com/magazine/the-kalk-calc-combo-method-185/ Good luck, Bruce

    Kalkwasser in ATO and 2 part? Dazed and confused

    Jason, Here is a link to an article I wrote that might assist. If you read through it, I talk about good ways to achieve stable parameters with Kalk only on a small tank. https://reefs.com/magazine/the-kalk-calc-combo-method-185.html/ Good Luck, Bruce
