    • Hi. I'll try and keep this short as several questions. Second set up and still class myself as a newbie as pretty inexperienced with my coral and equipment knowledge, but water management is good.  1. Does Nopox affect mushrooms in a negative way? Had great growth/colour prior to starting dosing this, can't keep them alive now. Reason for asking.? Not sure whether to continue use in new 4 x 4 x 2 tank.  2. Can you over skim? My volume is on the limit for the model I'm looking at, next model up is double that. Was mentioned in conversation that after water change, initially skimmer may strip out desirable elements before corals can fully utilise them. Not sure about this one, more wanting advice on rating of skimmer.  3.  Is it worth plumbing in a reactor now, organising position, pump, pipework etc to save faffing around later on if I need it?  4. Apologies if this one sounds a dumb question. How close to the surface can rock work go ideally? I'm asking because I found flat pieces and used them to fully hide my weir, right up to the grid. The only place I have algae growing is, as normal I suspect, behind the weir comb, but also the top edge of the rock. Is this simply a case of concentrated nutrient flow and high light strength, it's only 2" below surface, or is better to keep the rock work lower than I've put it?  Many thanks.

    • Update on tank. I lost a lot of fish to what I thought was white spot but it appears that it was new tank syndrome after my house move. Even with A well known tank starter chemical and live rock from my existing tank (nearly 2 years old) I had problems.

    • Hi Guys, sorry I haven't been on for a bit. The fragging worked as you can see in the new pic I'll be downloading, both for the mushrooms and toadstools. I have stable water parameters finally for about 3 months now except for the PH, it was 7.4 last week so I finally got round to making a CO2 scrubber which seems to have worked as it's been 8.1 for the last few days. As you can see since I got a female my McCoskers is displaying nicely, and since I got an arrow crab the only bristleworms I'm finding or seeing are half eaten ones
