  1. Tapatalk issues

    Sorry for the delay. This should now be rectified. There were issues with the server not recognising the new version. Let me know if you are still having issues please.
  2. Tapatalk issues

    Yeah I'm getting the same. I've raised a ticket so we'll see what comes back but I fear the recent security patch has some incompatibilities. It's server side not your end. I'll keep you posted. For now I'm afraid you will have to log on the forum as usual rather than tapatalk.
  3. Dosing made simple

    Nice simple guide mate
  4. Mg/l

    Just checked the instructions. The pack comes in a 400g box so 360mg (1mg per litre) seems a very low dose! For info there are 1000mg to a single gram! Can't help you any further than that mate. Watch your alk as this stuff will drop it.
  5. Mg/l

    1mg per litre (1mg/l) so for your setup it would be 260mg which is a seriously small amount lol. Are you reading the instructions correctly?
  6. 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

    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 :).
  8. Bryopsis??

    I'd say so yeah. Raising mag stupidly high (1500+) sometimes helps. My foxface nailed whatever bryopsis I ever had.
  9. Hi Guys

    Boiling it should be fine. You could just put a small piece of milliput over the nem which would save you a lot of hassle. Chances are though if there's one in the tank, more will have already seeded unless you are incredibly lucky.
  10. My Bit Of Water

    Sounds great. Got any pics?
  11. Hi Guys

    Wish I had that much space to play with!
  12. Light for 2ft tank - Evergrow??

    The new 5 serious seem to be a good option if you don't want to go Maxspect again. You might also consider a single 2nd hand radion 3 which seem to be around the £200-£250 mark now.
  13. High reef temperatures

    My chiller broke over the weekend - back to using a fan setup.
  14. Hi Guys

    they will normally only eat what is dead/dying but if there is no rotting food available they will feed on other stuff that is available as they are 'opportunistic' in nature.
