    Help with water clarity using Triton method

    Hey guys, was wondering if anyone had any tips on improving water clarity while using the Triton method and carbon dosing. My tank always looks like a milkshake and I'm not sure how to improve it without disrupting the nutrient balance. I run higher end nutrient levels 10-15ppm no3 and carbon...

    Ran out of Core7 3b and the replacement will not arrive until the 19th.

    So I realized that I ran out of Triton Core7 3B this morning, and upon searching, can't find the refill carton that I thought I had. I ordered the 5L Jugs a few days ago but they will not arrive until the 19th. I looked around and it lists 3B as Alkalinity + Trace, which is the same as 3a, but...

    What an ICP-OES machine CANNOT test

    Triton Detox raising copper levels?

    So I received back my Triton ICP test and it indicated I had 5.112 ug/l of copper in my tank. So I pulled out my Copper Hanna Checker and sure enough it read .06. Therefore, I removed my carbon, and dosed Triton Detox for 3 days. I placed the carbon back in my tank, and did another Hanna Checker...

    German ICP Water Analysis Comparison

    I ran ATI, Triton, & FaunaMarin ICP tests on my 160 gallon reef tank. All three tests were taken within 3 minutes of each other from the same location within the aquarium. Attached are the results. TLDR: I now trust the results of all three (except Triton Iodine) as they all reasonably agree...

    Triton results from fresh salt mix (a lot of Silicon, Zinc, Iron!) And questions about RODI filter priority...

    So my recent Triton test results show a high amount of Manganese, Silicon, Zinc, Iron, and a bit of phosphate. I'm using Tropic Marin Pro. I have a feeling these results could have come more from the RO water and not the salt mix, So I'll be sending a test in for just the water soon. I have 4...

    What is this, and how do I control it.

    I have a grainy green algae growing on my sand and rocks. I can't find any information about this, nor what can be done to get rid of it. I've heard opinions ranging from it looks like a green diatom (which I can't find any info on), to it is a silicate based algae. The tank is running the...

    Kaiser's Red Sea 750xxl SPS Dream Build

    I've been a hobbyist for about 5 years now, starting when I was 16 and I'm now turning 21, and being of the younger crowd, I could only really dream of owning a larger tank. I started off with a 20g high, and I've had many tanks set up at the same time, but I never really had the money to have a...

    Switching from Zeovit to ARID reactor

    So, yesterday morning I went downstairs to check on my tanks and noticed my power was totally off one two of them. It was raining out, so I figured it might be a popped breaker or something. Was basically right, my GFCI had tripped, fortunately it had only been 20-30 minutes earlier, not even...
