    End of cycle? All my nitrAtes disappeared?

    Hello, So I have been fishless cycling my BC29 for a couple weeks now and I went through an ammonia spike, nitrite spike, and… not a nitrate spike? [USING API TEST KIT— I know, it’s junk] I may sound delusional but literally, my ammonia was so high that the tests were robin-egg blue. Everyone...

    Finally have phosphates but still 0 nitates

    Hello fellow saltines, My tank is still young (8 months now) and until about 6 weeks ago I had 0 phosphate and 5ppm nitrate. I started to get some hair algae and instead of just adding some snails I panicked and started doing manual removal by doing daily pulling and siphoning which of course...

    Fuge Rites phosphate

    First time posting on reef 2 reef. Been asking for advice from a Facebook good but haven’t had any luck. I have a 75 gallon display with a 18gallon sump. I have a fuge going, but to me the rites and phosphate are still to high. I had .17 on the phosphate and 17.6 on rites. Done a 20% water...

    Bio Pellets During Cycle to Manage Nitrates

    Hello, I Just began cycling my tank (shrimp method) and as we all know, the standard method for reducing nitrates is to perform a water change at the end of the cycle. Instead, I'm going to run bio pellets in a reactor through the cycle and see if it will help keep the nitrates low. I'm going...

    Nitrite not zeroing out?

    So I've got a Red Sea Reefer 250, but I might be having some issues on the cycle. The tank has been up for exactly a month today. I am currently testing the cycle with API (I have red sea test kits for all other aspects of testing, the API is only for the cycle). My current readings are ammonia...

    Can brightwell purit reduce no3

    I have a 20g tank and I'm using a canister filter, the issue is my no3 getting high, my no3 reading at 5ppm. In my canister filter, I'm using crushed coral stone, sponges and chemi-pure elite. My LFS recommends using a brightwell purit. Can the brightwell purit really reduce no3?

    Cycle question, ammonia and nitrate but no nitrites?

    Hey everyone! I set up my waterbox 20 a few days ago, and added dr tims ammonia and one n only to start the cycle. I dosed ammonia to 4ppm, and have been testing daily. I'll attach a screenshot of my excel spreadsheet with test results. I've been recording ammonia and nitrates from day 2, but...

    The One and Only Thread for Hair algae control

    I should start by saying, I do not have all the answers, in fact, I hardly have any. After combing the forums daily for weeks, I realized that there are hundreds(thousands?) of threads concerning GHA. Unfortunately many of these threads have either gone unanswered, or the answers varied greatly...

    Can I test for nitrate in freshly mixed saltwater as a "control" to make sure my test kit is working properly?

    Just got some new hanna checkers today and tested high range nitrate. The result was too high to read, and the instructions say to dilute it if that happens. I cut the sample in half and added more water, same result. After a second halving I got 52! This result seems ridiculous as I'd expect...

    Hanna HI782 in freshwater

    Diluted with 5 mL RO/DI so it's giving me 148.8 mg/L! Not diluted but it's in NO3-N which converts to 99.6 mg/L nitrate! I did a ~95% water change on 10/30 so this is pretty surprising. And my 2nd largest fish is in fish jail for being aggressive while my 3rd largest is in the FICU (fish...

    Impact of Aquavitro Alpha on Nitrate

    Hi there, I am running a mixed reef and recently introduced a batch of new corals. Apparently, in my excitement I have been over-feeding my new arrivals, because after a week I've got a spike in Nitrate to 25pmm (using a Hanna Instruments HI782 Marine Nitrate High Range Checker HC). I normally...

    Adjusting Chaeto light schedule to maintain nutrients.

    I recently created a chaeto reactor for my Biocube. The chaeto is just starting to grow and has made me more comfortable feeding my fish and adding more to my tank. I currently have the lighting 12/12hr opposite the lighting of my display tank. It has been so efficient at reducing nutrients that...

    Filter Floss VS Filter Socks | The battle between changing Filter floss or bleaching and maintaining filter socks.

    I personally use filter floss because it's cheaper than buying new filter socks and maintaining them but I was wondering what Reefers would think.
