    Pure vinegar to clean pumps?

    Hey reefers, we've been asked multiple times how to clean aquarium equipment and we've been through multiple options which other reefers normally use. First of all, we recommend to often clean your equipment as this maintains a high efficiency and generally extends the products life. In regard...

    Has anyone tried the Red Sea Reef Energy Coral nutrition A/B ? What effects does it have on calcium and magnesium? How can the calcium and mag dip and rise without doing anything? Started dosing Alkalinity by Red Sea. Need to get CO2 to get my calcium reactor running. Who’s used a calcium...

    pH: trust the probe or test kit?

    I keep testing my pH and trusting the Red Sea test kit, which shows a consistent 8.0-8.4 number throughout the day. Since I like this number over that of the probe, I've assumed it was correct. Now, I replaced my Neptune systems double junction probe without of BRS, also double junction. Both...

    Concerning the Trident:

    Chasing numbers… Sigh

    I've been doing reef aquaria long enough to know I'm not supposed to chase numbers; yet, I found myself doing that the past couple of weeks. Unfortunately, in the process, I've managed to kill 1 clam, while the other one looks like it's on its way out. Everything else seems to be looking all...

    My New ReefBot cannot test 8 things. Only 4.

    So I just received my new reefbot. I am surprised to report that it cannot test 8 different things as one setup. I am able to test Alk. Calcium. Mag. And phosphates. So even though there are 8 vials in the machine some test kits require multiple reagents for a single test. I guess I will need...

    High calc with fresh Reef Crystals?

    Has anyone else had an issue with IO Reef Crystals having super high calc? I had a calc reading of 518 in my tank over the weekend and a fellow reefer on here suggested I mix some fresh SW and test the params, so I did and at 1.026 ppm, Reef Crystals is measuring calc at 522. Anyone else had...

    First time testing Calc & Alk. Calc seems high?

    Hi all, I invested in a couple of Hanna checkers for the first time! I have a 25 lagoon that's about 7 months old. It's all LPS right now, and I'd like to add some montis soon, so I tested both Calc & Alk today for the first time and they came in at 518 & 8.1, respectively. I double tested...

    Kalkwasser dosing

    Hi everyone. So I got my hanna test kit today to move from my regular dosing to just using kalkwasser with an ATO. My calcium is at 483 and alkalinity is at 7.2 which is alright for me alkalinity could be raised a bit but 7.2 is really fine for me. Should I allow my tank to go for a week...
