I didn’t know if it was smart to just toss some salt in there though haha
Take some water out and dissolve it in a cup. Them pour it in
Do it slowly
Get a thermometer.
Get new test kits.
Weekly 5 gallon water changes. Mix your salt properly and get a good hydrometer
Clean filter sock at least 2 Times a week
Run skimmer 24/7
Yes no doubt, will do. Thank you for the help!!
Putting in my corals now.
Here is my personal email email@example.com
I would appreciate it if any of you could email me so that if I need anything in the future I have someone to contact! Thanks!
Great explanation on a reset folks. May I suggest using this.
We'll be here on R2R!!! Not going anywhere! Tank looks better, just need to test for awhile to keep an eye on everything.
Yes I agree. Keep an eye on tests, especially Ammonia. Your tank_might_recycle.
Next morning update - everything seems to be doing just fine. My frogspawn has started to open. As expected the Zoas and GSP have remained closed.
I ordered more filter socks and plan on getting some super glue today so that I can put my corals back onto the rocks.
And I plan on doing my first water change on Thursday or Friday.
Nutrients and poors husbandry.
Change all the water but what in your sump. Scrub each rock in the old water.
Add everything back and keep up on water changes.
I'd do twice a week changes because once you get this much nutrients build up it soaks into the rocks and it leaches back into the tank.
Otherwise deal with how it looks with hair algae, cyno and dinos.
So I’ve got another question for you guys ...
a friend of mine has an anemone he has to get rid of soon and I am very interested in it. Obviously I know it would not be good to add it anytime soon because of everything I just had to do.
But I was wondering if you could tell me when it would be okay to add it.. about a month or so? After my tank starts to cycle again and I have no ammonia and nitrites and some nitrates.
He has the same LEDs as me and the anemone is doing great so I am not worried about that. But can anyone give me any advice or tips about what to do and what not to do?
Unfortunately I would not add an Anemone for another 6 months at least. They need stable parameters, and with you having a newly facelifted tank, the parameters swing to much.
I would say 8-9 months
Okay .. that’s unfortunate but thanks.
What do you think about a torch coral?
He also has some dragons breath macro that looks amazing. How hardy are they?
Dragons breath is pretty hardy. Dragons breath with chaeto is good refugium algae to export nutrient. Do you have a refugium? or do you plan on putting that in the DT? Some algae eaters (as in tank, fox face) will eat dragon breath. Good luck with your cycling.
Thanks. I was planning on putting it in the display tank. How long do you think I’ll have to wait before adding it?
Macro algae can go in right now. But it may become a nuicense in the display.
You will have to prune it back or find something to eat it
