    Tank Tests use to sell a few P04 reducing products like phos and doc (P04 remover and carbon) which worked very well but as @W3bbo stated a PITA to rinse. Rowa is essentially the P04 remover side. They also did a liquid phosphate remover which was diluted Lanthanum Chloride very effective but did bond to calcium causing precipitation (cloudy water) like I said very good but am word to the wise, if you are using it keep an eye on your Ca ! Rowa can be using in conjunction with Nopox to help bring P04 under control but only for a short period as it will strip out the P04 giving nothing for the N03 to bind to and be skimmed out. Nopox/Vodka are food for nitrifying bacteria which introduces and healthy balance of bacteria for N03 reduction. The key when carbon dosing is good skimming.

    I didn't realise your tank was as good as that, as you never seem to post any pictures, you should post more pictures more often and of individual corals and it looks very impressive and you certainly made the most of what space you have in your tank.[emoji846][emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It will be become 'live' with bacteria but not live with critters (copepods/amphipods) until you add some live rock (or a coral with its base). Take things very slow at first. 3-4 weeks is rarely enough time to cycle a tank properly, especially if you have not added bacteria and are growing bacteria from scratch by use of ammonia. I know its very tempting to add coral/fish etc early but there chances of survival are much better the longer you leave the tank empty.

    Hi all, thanks to Luke (HighEndOfTheLow) for suggesting this new forum on reef-Face. Basically if you are growing any frags on but they are not ready yet, you can advertise them in the Frag Offers and Reservations forum and people can request for a frag to be reserved for them. There is a ready made template in the forum when you start a new post, all you have to do is fill your info in and keep the first post updated with people who request reservations. I hope you make good use of it as it sounds like a great idea to me. The forum can be found in the classifieds section of the board. cheers Mark
