The Nero 5 at around 35% rips haha. I just moved it to the side of the tank as opposed to back middle to see if that helps out. Also poked through a section of the sand today to stir it up and clean it.How’s the flow around the corners once it’s hitting the front glass? I think that would determine placement better. Also have you tried turning it up some? When I had one pump I had to set to 70% and only dead spot was right under the pump because of the Rockwork.
Pump is doing awesome on the side. I increased the % as well. Perfect.Weird water changes should drop them. If you don’t see a drop with a 50% water change I’d take a sample to a lfs and have them run the test.
How’s the pump working on the side vs the back?
long journey but you made it gratz . you should prob take a toothbrush to that rock there is only so much a clean-up crew can handle. Tech we are the biggest part of the cleanup crew.Good news! I just placed a clean up crew order with ReefCleaners yesterday. Should be here this week!
I have a long brush I use but it doesn’t seem to take it off. It’s weird.long journey but you made it gratz . you should prob take a toothbrush to that rock there is only so much a clean-up crew can handle. Tech we are the biggest part of the cleanup crew.
Ha ha well I'm at a point where I think the dinos came back. Makes 0 sense. Did a water change 1.025 salinity with RODI water...more elbow xD some times u just gotta work it
Kinda hard to tell! Do you have a microscope?Ha ha well I'm at a point where I think the dinos came back. Makes 0 sense. Did a water change 1.025 salinity with RODI water...
Here's pics - can someone help identify and let me know what you think I can do? Not sure why this keeps happening...
I don't - here's a few pics in natural light. I thought maybe diatoms because of water changes, but this looks to be darker than that. So frustrating. Just tested nitrates and came back at around 15ppm via Salifert.Kinda hard to tell! Do you have a microscope?
Not entirely sure, no. I have more clean up crew coming today. I would guess that they will take care of it, assuming it's regular algae. I don't see the bubbles on the end of the algae (which is normally a strong dino indicator) so that's good news.Are you positive it’s Dino’s? It might just be algae that you have to deal with.
