    Hot off the press from Interzoo 2018 The Red Sea ReefWave is a new addition to Red Sea products and a great addition to any aquarium IMO They have taken the patented Gryre concept and made it wireless through the Red Sea App ReefWave™- advanced cross-flow wave pumps (based on “Gyre” patented technology) provide natural and powerful water movement across the aquarium with unique reverse and alternating waves. Incorporating quiet and energy efficient sine-wave technology, each pump comes with a controller that includes a wide range of on-board programs, as well as a wi-fi connection to Red Sea’s user-friendly app that offers even more wave options The official release date and pricing is still TBC

    I've noticed the forum running smoother and uploads are working really well. Good job guys and this is my favourite forum! It's sometimes a little quiet but has a nice feel about it I've always felt at home here Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

    I can only second what @mrdave has already said really. In truth I've been struggling with my own setup, well not so much struggling but pretty much running it on autopilot and what with the photobucket demise (no longer free) my own thread took a hit with regard to picture updates. The forum software allows us to simply drag and drop straight onto here though so I'll update my own thread before asking others to update theirs! I'm not one for facebook etc and feel the forums are where the real structured information is. The thing with facebook is trusting who is messaging. With a forum you can look back through previous posts (And tank threads) to ensure the info you're getting is based on experience and not regurgitated. We're open to any and all suggestions for how YOUR forum should be operated so please don't be shy - give us your opinions please. Long live the forum. Long live Reef-Face :).

    I know this new dosing system has been in development some time, it will take dosing to the next level I'm sure, I'll let you know when I get my hands on a set but we are unlikely to see on sale until the last quarter 2018 all will be revealed in the Red Sea newsletter so if you haven't already signed up follow the link https://www.redseafish.com/red-sea-newsletter/ Thanks Red Sea Kev

    Hi everyone. I have been a tropical AQUARIUMIST for 20 years, until my last tank seals started to leak, so got a new tank and decided on trying Marine out. It has been a long road and a lot of modifications along the way but got there in the end, now enjoying my new tank. this is what my tank looks like, still bare, but liking the difference from tropical to marine.

    Nice one@JamieJ4249 [emoji1303] There’s some well experienced guys on here that will be able to give you loads of advice. Create yourself a thread on your current tank and another for the one you’re planning (do it in the ‘member tanks and threads’ folder) - that way, you will have a track record of everything in one place (including somewhere to store pictures). Threads have helped me out no end - you get advice from others and you can look back over a period of time. This often enables you to identify what you changed in the past that might have had a positive or negative impact on your reef. As you know, my build has been a year in the making. To be honest, I’m glad it has. I’ve changed an tweaked plans so much since my original planning. Nothing happens fast in a reef tank - the same goes for the planning [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Guys, I received a text last night from Grant ( @mr tap water ) telling me that he has closed his system down and moved it on. To say I was gob smacked is an understatement ! He has also asked to step down from Moderator but will continue to contribute to Reef Face as a member. I would like to thank Grant for all his hard work and input over the past few years and wish him luck in what ever he decides to do next. I feel it is a massive loss to the reefing community and truly hope he gets the salty bug back again soon. Thank you Grant !!!!!!! @W3bbo and I had been discussing asking another member to join our Team due to increasing traffic. So please welcome @chris.viner87 to the moderation team.

    I recently added a dos to my system and what a great bit of kit it is, the down side being if you want the fluid monitor in your dashboard you have to buy a DDR - well no you don’t after messing around with my multimeter and searching the net I made it display without the DDR by adding two wires To two of the inputs and a float valve I had lying around i have bought the correct plugs and associated bits and bobs to make my own sensors to connect to the Dos Watch this space

    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.

    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

    I had been thinking about one of these for a while a macro algae reactor but the prices for these units seem crazy for what they are so went about making one. It consists of a second-hand TMC500 pellet reactor (Thanks Shane) and a £10 waterproof 5m strip of 12v led's 300 in total and daylight spec 6000-6500k I got them and wrapped them around the reactor followed by a several rolls of insulation tape and there we have it DIY macro algae reactor I'll see how it goes And here it is fitted to the tank Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Yeah I've used a cyanobacteria remover a couple of times and it worked like it stated on the packet however I found it returned after about 6months, i don't know if this was down to it just being masked by the chemical or my bad husbandry, what I've learn from weeks and weeks or researching is one of the main factors of cyanos appearance is an unbalance between your nitrates and phosphates when I got on top of this and kept them within a good ratio it never returned.

    Hi mate, i can do them , they’re not a stock item , normally they take the form of a T shape with the top of the T up against the main baffle then you choose where to have the separation for skimmer size fuge size etc

    Deffo interested in cheato reactors IF they can be made and sold relatively cheaply. The ARID reactor looks the business but is ridiculously expensive for what it is which is why many have taken to the DIY route. If you could produce something in the middle ground (effective but cost conscious) I'm sure it would appeal to many. For the purposes of this thread I would like to see a direct comparison of effectiveness between a cheato reactor and one of your ATS. IS one better at low or high nitrates? Positives and negatives etc. As the turf scrubber 'produces' GHA from scratch whereas the reactor simply grows cheatomorpha that is required to be added to kick things off - which route is best? Of particular interst to me is phosphate reduction effectiveness. Look forward to your updates

    if you only have a few pull them out as a Harlequin will need a lot of starfish to live which will mean you will soon need to buy starfish to feed it. I have some in mine I just pull them out now and then but if you find any munching Zoas ECT if you have Zoas then look at getting a Harlequin to take them all out but until then see them as free CUC Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Hi, Thanks for the advice. Today I'm doing water change and had everything tested - going on holiday for a couple of weeks. My mates coming in to feed and check the tank whilst I'm away. Good news is there's been new new aiptasia since the last one 2 weeks ago so I'm hioping it's all clear now - I'll know more when I get back.
