The balance is super fine! Great suggestion on getting the testing done. I just put fresh carbon and rowa in the reactor over the weekend. Hate to waste it, but have no choice. I did dose some nitrates and phosphates this morning!

The equipment cabinet is still opened up from vacation since I’m still using the brute as my ATO. I miss the bigger ATO container...

Super dirty tank a week later...

Surprisingly didn’t use my ATO water while gone 7 nights. Possibly because I pulled Cheato out before we left and let it grow in... and we raised the temp in the house to 79? I did add nitrates and phosphates to this water to add nutrients to the tank since I had ZERO when we left!

Dirty glass, but growth tips on the large colony green slimmer.

FINALLY took the time to clean the glass, pumps and other tank related items. Ran out of acro power a few weeks ago, today I ran out of the RedSea Reef Energy.... and you can’t find it in stock anywhere.
