  1. 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

  3. Good luck[emoji846] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Hi Chris Welcome to reef face If you so wish Now would be a good time to start a diary so we can follow your progress right from the beginning with lots of pictures to. Until then good luck with your new venture[emoji846][emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 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
  8. So what have you seen your No3 go from in the last two weeks of using it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I saw those when they first came out and was tempted in the beginning get one myself but was put off by good and bad write-ups. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hi there if I'm understanding this right you just need a double socket connector where two heater plugs go into 1. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Hi Paul How did you get on with transporting your fish. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. It really makes you wonder what will come out next for this hobby. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. What would be the possible reasons for my hermit crab to keep coming back to the same coral even if I put in one end of the tank he will still make his way back up to the top of one of my islands to the same coral he doesn't seem to be doing any damage and From what I can see there are no eggs either.
