That has to be the saddest friggen picture I've seen in SOOOOOO long.Sorry to hear about sweet Sophie.
@Fudsey , I am SO sorry for your loss, Sophie looked like an amazing companion and she was lucky to have you, as I'm sure you feel you were lucky to have her. Best wishes on healing.So, I got 25 gallons of Fritz blue mixing and will do a 25% water change tomorrow. Received my Hanna salinity tester and although the unit itself is fine, BRS shipped it in a padded envelope and the case is broken, the top is cracked almost completely across at the hinge. I contacted Hanna and we'll see if they respond to it.
Tank is suffering and I am unsure what it causing it. SPS are all dead except 1 and it's not looking good. Frogspawn are also dying. But everything else is doing very well. @Scurvy 's toadstool is around 10" across and very happy. Trachy's and Lobo are puffy and Dragon Soul Torch (@RichtheReefer21 ) is extending per usual and needs another fragging.
No idea on parameters because I'm lazy as crap right now Might check them later if I get the ambition
Been busy trying to get kitchen island top urethaned so we can use it again. It's going to look stunning when it's done. Just have to put 3 more coats on.
Not gonna get into it all and make Keith's BT a mess, but maybe I just got lucky using RPM blue from fritz. 2 years. Never an issue that could have been salt related.I would bet your SPS issues are related to your salt, a lot of threads lately relating to SPS dying off and the common denominator seems to be the Fritz salt...
That is just AWESOME, our one dog Zoey, try as she might, just can't catch them lol@JoshH I'd say that Fritz was the problem but I haven't used it yet except for about 4 gallons worth. This will be the 1st time I've done a water change with it....
Sophie was my little muffin, she was my Frisbee dog when she was younger and have many pics of her feet off the ground catching a frisbee. She was the first dog we have had that would go for a frisbee too.
And don't worry, we will have more dogs, probably sooner than Laurie predicted too. Already have her looking at them and she said we should look for a bonded pair this time too...
I see what you’re talking about now. I’m gonna do another WC this week as well. I will test again Wednesday morning and if NO3 and PO4 haven’t moved in the right direction I will do mine Thursday.Thanks guys ! !
So @RichtheReefer21 I got the ambition and did a full set of tests....
PO4 - .061
NO3 - ~50
pH - 8.2
Salinity - 1.025
temp - 77F
Ca - 430
Mg - 1430
NO3 is refusing to come down so I will be doing a 25% water change a little later. Not sure why the sulfur denitrator isn't bringing them down even though the effluent tests under 10... I really need to plumb in the 40b for a fuge. The ball of cheato in there is about the size of a beach ball now...
