  2. Hello from me to you

    Ok, thanks, may look. Into that, but I'd be surprised if that was the case. I use good quality fermentation buckets for my water.
  3. Hello from me to you

    Ah cool - would still be worth testing it with a pen though if you can. I found that the container I was keeping my water in was leaching silicates. Wouldn’t have found out if I didn’t get a pen to test it [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hello from me to you

    Right, to last 2 posts, thanks. Had an orange spot goby in for 3 weeks, as said never stops and really seems to have helped. New ro membrane 2 months ago with di resin chamber after ro membrane so pretty sure silicates aren't getting through. No3 10, po4 0.03
  5. Hello from me to you

    Welcome to Reef Face Damo! What’s your NO3 and PO4 reading? I went through a period of this and once I started dosing Nitrate to maintain 5-10 constant it went away (my SPS coloured up amazingly too!). Before that I had an issue with my RO water - have you checked your RO water? It could be due to silicates in your RO water, so water changes will make it even worse.

  6. Hello from me to you

    Also when I had it the last time I bought a blue cheek goby and he cleaned the sand so good the cyano never came back. He was a top little worker Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  12. DIY Macro algae reactor

    Yeah with going back to oval racing something had to give and it would not be fair on the tank as it would end up neglected due to how much time is taken up racing ect Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  23. Hello from me to you

    Not alot to report tbh. phosphate still low, cyano may be slowing down a little (I hope). Mr Dave, that green skimmate has returned back to it's week tea colour so not sure what's going on there. Thanks for the welcome tiger tank, hello to you 😊
  24. Chinese Houyi Lighting Led Units

    No idea I'm afraid. I would guess the hy-ao2 would work.
  25. Chinese Houyi Lighting Led Units

    Hi all, i know this is an old post but need some help with a houyi led unit i purchased with no power pack. The unit is 4foot long and has 48 3w leds. It looks identical to the hy-a02 but doesnt have any vents for fans on the top. I know it needs a 36v power supply that connects to the top of the unit by a screw connector. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get a power supply or would it be possible to just use any 36v 3a led driver.
  26. We have had fantastic feedback on the whole Gamma Nutra range, also use it in my home tank with great feeding response they go crazy for it. Thanks Ant
  27. Gonna give the nutra shots a go. Save me dipping my hands in twice for the rings or algae sheets!
  28. Parameter log

    Here's mine. Bit more complex with some fancy graphs and tools. I also added some conditional parameters to show at a glance where my levels are. Green = good, yellow = requires adjustment, red = danger. This obviously depends on your own ideal parameters, mine are: Temp = 26 Ph = 8.2 Ca = 400-450 Alk= 6.5-7.5 Mg = 1280-1425 PO4 = <0.05 NO3 = <6ppm Reef Tracker 2017.xlsx
