    ...my demand is high. I'm considering that a good sign. If they were dying I don't think they would be sucking up alk this quickly. #honestyinreefing So what kind of redundancy could I work in? I have a redundant valve sitting on my desk, I just haven't installed it. It will take 5 minutes to...

    #honestyinreefing Ok, time for an update on the Calc Rx. I fought it all last night and ended up shutting it down again. This morning it dawned on me what I was doing wrong. Yesterday, after fighting the CO2 leaks, I picked up some silicone grease to help the O-ring to seal. I thought that was...

    #honestyinreefing Ok.. I made a mistake today when I changed my dosing rate. I changed my dosing rate from 288ml to 312ml this morning but I also switched from dosing 12 times a day to spreading it out over 24 additions a day. And.. my KH director took its afternoon test. Alkalinity spiked...

    Test dKh and Ca just now to see how my dosing recommendations from seachem calculator faired. I think I miscalculated my twv... put 140.. with rock and equipment displacement, its prolly closer to 100g or so. Dkh 9.1 Ca 460 Was aiming for 8.5 and 440. Whoops. #honestyinreefing #learningcurve

    I received a box of rocks today.

    These are the before pictures. Ten days of neglect. I waited until lights on to show how bad it was. I am posting these to compel myself to stay focused and clean the tank TODAY! Cleaning glass, pumps, rocks, floor, wall, etc, etc, everything! FUNKY!!! ;Hilarious #honestyinreefing

    ...too funny this guy has stones. So quick to get comfortable in tank and with us approaching the glass feeling good on chances. #honestyinreefing lta got mad and moved to back right corner again out of the created hole. Not sure what triggered it other than perhaps hunger since no changes to...

    ...I will be monitoring the kH and Ca in the coming days to ensure everything is ok and that I am dosing the correct quantities. #honestyinreefing I noticed aiptasia and bristle worms like never before in my tank. I hope the banded shrimp and the yellow wrasse will help with the worms. I...

    #honestyinreefing When I drained the tank and drilled it last year I shimmed the right side of the stand to help with old saggy floors. Well, I didnt shim enough and the downstream effects have reared their ugly heads. Found salt creep forming along the rim on the lower trim coming up on the...

    ...base to keep it stable. Of course, since it was a quick job, I didn't pull out my stool or remove the cover. Tried to adjust it by sliding my arm in. End result? The rock still isn't straight and I have large pieces of purple and green monti caps laying on my sandbed. grrr. #honestyinreefing

    ...2 weeks ago and ran into problems. Figured out what I had done wrong and got it to work this morning. Of course, here is where the #honestyinreefing comes in.

    #honestyinreefing Confession I trusted my TDS in line meter to guide filter changes try yo get a little more life out of them. Wrong choice folks.
