Oh ok. Can I do it only in specific places near rock or do I need to do it all throughout the tank?

I think I am going to take the camaro shows advice about buying slow with the tank. I kinda am doing that with my fw slowly converting them into just indoor ponds. I am going to save money so I can actually get the cool fish and inverts I want instead of going cookiecutter and buying a cheaper version of a fish that might do bad things

before I get into less hardy corals I’m gonna get a 2nd light fixture and 2 acintic bulbs. I’m 99% sure my diy reflector will work and I can just use scrap polycarbonate for it

Setting up your RODI-
Id first call your water department and find out what they are using to treat your water specifically. I live in AZ. We have 9 water treatment plants just in Phoenix Valley alone. And some plants in some sectors use different chemical to treat water than others.
Pentek sells a filter designed to specifically remove Clorine/Chloramine. All you do is pop it into your prefilter stage. After sediment stage. Preferably after 1 micron block 2nd stage.
Id highly reccomend getting a 3 canister DI from brs and set it up as described by them in there videos.
Your going to get out what you put in and Source water is #1 where it all starts.

Not sure how works in america but in uk we can go online and get latest water reports which usually updated every 2- 4 weeks.this mine from 30/4/21.
This should be enough info right ?

Ours does that too but there are multiple sources. Some say there is Chlromaine some say there isn’t.

should I 24/7 drip phyto from a culture or dose with a cup?

Keep in mind only a small percent of the phyto will go to food and more will settle and die and become waste.

Process with caution. Personally I would not drip and instead target feed the organism small amounts with a pipette so less is wasted.
