  2. Hello from me to you

    Also when I had it the last time I bought a blue cheek goby and he cleaned the sand so good the cyano never came back. He was a top little worker Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  6. Hello from me to you

    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.

  9. Red sea 250 baffle kit

    Hey Toby don't suppose you do a baffle kit for the Red sea reefer 250? I've had a look on your website but couldn't spot it. I've been browsing the web and seen a couple people running triton on the 250s and toying with the idea. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  12. Light for 2ft tank - Evergrow??

    I had my evergrow it2120 on my 4ft reef for almost 3 years before I sold the tank and everything it was a fantastic light unit and never missed a beat, I'm currently setting up my new tank which is just short of 3ft and I'm considering the new evergrow it5060 unit these light units come with the legs and the hanging wires so it can be mounted however you please. I'm also considering a second hand Radion or hydra but my only issue is there's no warranty with second hand units. I mean if budget was unlimited I'd go for a new Radion but it's totally out of my price range currently.
  13. Hey guys so with setting up my new tank I will be going with dry rock and trying to keep unwanted pests to a minimum so I've got an 100l tank that I'm thinking of turning into a coral/fish holding tank so that I can inspect and monitor them for a month or two before adding them to my main reef. I do have a carrier bag of alfagrog that I'm planning on using in the rear sump as the tank won't have rock in I'm going to make a frag shelf unit with 2-3 tiers and add some pvc tubing for fish to hide in. So has anyone any advice or tips this will be my first holding tank but I've been toying with the idea for a year or so after having nudis come in on some zoas I bought in the past. Also a friend of mine got some zoas from a fish shop in Manchester and they had nudis aswell. I know that there's always a risk when adding new inhabitants to your tank of introducing a nasty or bug of some sort but I would just like to reduce this risk, i will also be dipping new additions before they go into the holding tank.

  14. Setting up a holding/QT tank

    Well This tank is now officially my partners soon to be mini reef got some bacteria in a bottle today and my friend who was shutting down came round with his last fish that no-one would come for a Tiny black clown fish. Now I'm not normally a fan of the add fish straight away witch craft bottles but what the Mrs wants the Mrs gets so in went Mr clown! So a quick re-scape and some quick photos and she's off. I suppose I need to create a tank thread for her lol might see if she will join up and add to it herself lol
  15. Dosing made simple

    Thanks buddy I'm sure even I can follow this haha
  16. Setting up a holding/QT tank

  17. Setting up a holding/QT tank

    I wasn't particularly looking for a live sand just the red sea reef pink sand caught my eye and then the ocean white looked amazing aswell was just good to see compare them in person Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  18. Setting up a holding/QT tank

    Yeah it was BAS the guy noticed me taking the photo so came over haha when I pointed it out he just totally ignored it. Then again most of them are like zombies in there. My Mrs had to nip into the office at work so while she was there I had a drive down to nosey they have some new Red sea stuff in so I could check out the live sands and the foundation elements while I was there. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk Yeah I've got a bottle of dettol in the cupboard ready I'm going to dip all corals aswell. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  19. Setting up a holding/QT tank

    Might just go with the Alfagrog.. basically with this just being a holding tank I'm not wanting to throw loads of money at it it will have all basic equipment that's fit for purpose at most it's going to have a semi-decent light like an LED tile or something for when the corals go in. I've found some cheap return pumps so going to pick one up on payday and fill it with RO and test for leaks and then give the media an RO bath for a week or so to pull out all the brad pit and stuff as it was sat in the garden in the rain. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk Went into a local fish shop today and spotted an urchin carrying some zoas and a massive Nudibranch on them so it's definitely made me want to set up this holding/QT tank Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

  23. Coral Feeding Lps

    Hey guys and gals so I've got a few lps corals now and well I've never directly fed any of then but they seem so be doing well, but I've recently picked up an acan And I'm wondering if I should start feeding a coral food? I do plan on getting some more acans and other lps (caught the bug bad) also thinking abut trying out some sps soon as well.

  25. Coral Feeding Lps

    Thanks buddy well so far I'm looking at reef roids D+D lps food and there's two similarly products called coral fusion and reef fusion. I think I'm just going to get one and give it a whirl at my current stocking levels I don't expect I'd be feeding it often possibly a pinch every week/fortnightly
