    Personally I don't see why the sump with Cheato would cause any issues, its just a method of nutrient removal. I run an ATS and not having any issues at all, its still producing a nice bumper crop about every 10-14 days and my parameters are pretty much rock solid except for my above post about running the GAC

    It will be perfectly fine, I run a little bit higher flow rate throuh my sump than Triton outlines and a ATS withzero issues. I use Red Sea Coral Pro salt, I have started to do 8% water changes once a month (2 so far) for sump cleanup etc.

    Placed order for 4 1000ml kits. Will give this a shot since Triton is backorder and seems brs only ones that carry 10L kits. I cant wait forever. Does seem like a better deal. Also ordered Red Sea blue buckets with do some water changes since currently running IO before starting Ati.

    @ATI North America -are you guys planing to work on creating a online reef calculator - for dosing ATI essential its pain to calculate dosing with the provided instruction.

    Guys,

    I made a mistake preparing essentials #2 (from an 1000ml set): I put 1000ml in a 10.ooo ml bucket - 10:1 ratio instead of 9:1 ratio.

    What I should expect from this mistke? Unbalanced water? Just dosing more? Should I make any adjustments to others buckets?

    Thanks in advance,

    Alexandre

    I would dose it as is for a week or so and test your calcium at that point. I have my #2 and #3 at a slightly lower dosage as it was running a bit elevated with a 1:1:1 dose

    It is absolutely fine and no problem to dose using a 10% increase of this one over number 3 that i assume you have mixed 9:1
    Some people here in the U.K. mix 11:1 12 litres total and just add more per day to keep parameters in check.
