    So I received my Trident a couple days ago. I've been playing around with it and here's what I've come up with so far. They give you a small piece of paper in the box that tells you to go to TASKS>Trident Initial Setup. They also give you a piece of paper with a BIG NO NO on plugging it in...

    Trying to Maintain a steady alk for my sps.

    So the past few days I've been testing. In short, I tested the Alk initially, after three days, and after six days. It had averaged a drop of 0.166 dKh/day for both tests. I used the Hannah alk checker, along with my standard for assurance. Basically, my (130ish gallon) system went from 8.2 to...

    Alk Swing Crisis Averted...but my Torch Coral Didn’t Like It

    It had been smooth sailing so something had to test me to see if I was on my A-game right? I guess I had somehow shaken loose the acrylic tube from the bulkhead in my dosing container that contains my Alkalinity buffer. I dose 28 ml of Ca and Alk per night via my Jebao dosing pump spread out...

    Carbo and calcium and kalk?

    so I’m thinking about using tropic Marin’s carbo calcium. I have a highly dominant sps tank and sps frag tank. I’ve heard that the carbo calcium and kalk are a great combo. I’m curious if anyone else is using this combo and why? Thanks all!
