  5. Flake foods

    A few weeks ago I bought this flake food, but I am reluctant to use it now from what I've read on the back saying that it contains some sort of copper, and also being that they portray it as marine food going by the picture. I have never come across this on other types of flake food I've bought over the years stating copper. So I would like to hear your views and is there anything to worry about with this food.

  10. Hello from me to you

    @Dj23bol said he had a good success rate with a product he used and might be able to help you l personally can’t remember what used. On the other hand it may be worth trying to get your phos levels up slightly and see if that works for you first. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hello from me to you

    Hi there Are you using any Carbon dosing by any chance also can you tell me is your No3 and Phos readings if out of balance maybe one reason why are you have it and what is the flow like around that area if there is not enough it can course dead spot allowing nutrients to build up which can sometimes spark this off. these are just a few possibilities. Also there are product on the market which is meant to get rid of this to if you don’t mind using chemicals. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. 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.

  23. 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
