  5. Hi Guys

    Yes it's quite normal with new skimmers when doing water changes or even adding anything to the water to go mad for a brief time but as the skimmer beds in it won't be as bad in the meantime try taking the lid off the Collection cup or rising the skimmer slightly higher when doing water changes until it settles.

    Welcome to reef face[emoji106] When you have time and if you have a System why not tell us all about what you have and how it runs with lots of pictures[emoji846] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hi Guys

    I would say 12 hours is average four hours ramping up To a full spectrum for Photo which is four hours then four hours ramping back down to 0. Some like longer some shorter it's just about tweaking to suit their own needs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Hi Guys

    It's entirely up to you really imo they're both as good as each other you could use both One in the morning and The other in the afternoon in small amounts, As for the skimmer I would get it up and running straight away it will take a few weeks to probably work properly anyway.[emoji846] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hi Guys

    I wouldn't add any more fish for a while imo you need to let colony do its job and let it build up the good bacteria to handle your fish Bio load for a length of time. And make sure you have no ammonia also keep an eye on your No3 as you want that down to reasonable levels first, before you move on. How are you running your system do you have a sump or are you running with external filter have you got any rock and what type, and what type of equipment have you got flow pumps lighting filters etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Phos removers experiences

    Yes I couldn't resist first of all I use it half the recommended amount didn't see much change within the first few hours of using it being it's meant to work instantly I decided to use the full recommended amount and brought it down from 0.36 to 0.16 with no side effects i.e. Floating particles are cloudiness. Or even irritation to corals. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
