  6. Marine sand cleaning

    Hello to one and all, I could do with some helpful advice on how i can clean my sand bed without sucking up the sand up when using my eheim sand cleaner.It seems to collect more sand than the waste that settled between all the sand.Im guessing that all the waste in there is making my phosphates rise and making my monti go brown. I've just bought a tub of rowa phos and going to fluidize to bring the p04 back to zero. Over to you guys any help will be much appriciated. Thanks. Rob.

  10. Hydro Stream By Ocean Free

    Yep your right najer, I don't have a sump. But need to find something new so that I don't have equipment hanging off my tank.I was talking to a salesman at maidenhead aquatics and he was explaining on the two types of tanks.One was a veneer one which did have a sump with it but no pipe work but not a problem for me.Second one was a tank which had solid wood surrounding it but he said that it would not fit a sump but could go with the mentioned hydro stream.He also mentioned that I could still run my external canister filter and also do away with my protein skimmer which I think would be not a good idea personally. I want to upgrade my tank before I fill it with more corals and fish. Just need some guidance Rob
  11. Hello guys I would like to get some quality feed back about the external hydro stream filtration units by ocean free.I'm looking to upgrade my tank and I think by reading some info on this unit would be the best thing to have and to replace the use of a sump system. What's the thoughts of you guys. One last question on this topic would i be able to do away with a protein skimmer by using one of these?? Many thanks ripcurl67

  13. Coral Problems

    Thanks for that najer.I was going to get them but the size i wanted was out of my price range.I hope they bounce back.I will put it down to lack of experience on my part.
  14. Coral Problems

  15. Coral Problems

    Hi kev,You are completly rrigh did the check monday and start to dose 4ml.BUT i got home yesterday to find my candy cane looking worst for ware.So i did another check and nitates had come down but phosphate had gone up.Bth i think my rowaphos may need changing in my reactor as its been in quite a bit.Everything looked ok until i increased the whites on my leds to 75 from 60% so i've reduced them back down again.The whites are only on for 4 hours after ramping up and down.Could this be the cause of my problems with my corals???. Rob.
