Is it really necessary to dose triton components in the refugium .
Due to surface problem ,I wanted to add components in the main pump box.( plus it has more flow there)

And my second question maybe you have plans to release an additive specially designed for the growth of the Chaeto, it would be really very valuable and useful for many of us who have problems with the growth of the Chaeto due to the lack of necessary macro and micro elements for its growth, regardless of the method of keeping aquarium.

It is exactly what I do - add it in the return chamber. It works excellent. It is best tp dose 3a+b in a fast flowing part of the sump

Don’t know if this has been asked- got to page 9 of this thread last night and fell asleep- will be setting up a 75 gallon Planet Aquarium with a 1” drain, only drain at that, and will have a Durso standpipe. Don’t know if I’ll be able to get to the 10x total volume turnover, but I intend on putting a manifold inline with my return pump. If I recycle some water via the manifold into the fuge section, can this be in lieu of the 10x minimum flow rate? I guess my drain will be around 600 gph as it is. Would this be ok, or would this necessitate the “other methods”? Thanks!

There is really no definitive answer to this. I would say "as big as you can fit and afford". The larger the nutrient export system the more fish and coral your system can support. It is not uncommon for people to wish they had bought a larger filter component down the track.

hello, I am setting up a new tank of 250 liters net for sps some lps. Where can I find information on products and dosages to start with tritone for ripening? all advice and suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Usually you don't start dosing TRITON Core7 until you see your Alkalinity start to drop as dosage is based on Alkalinity consumption.

Core7 has 9750dKH/L

TRITON Core7 starting dose:

2ml/100L/day

We recommend that you maintain your Alkalinity stable between 7 - 8 dKH.

If you start with this dose rate and your alkalinity continues to drop then increase the dose rate. If your alkalinity starts to rise then decrease the dose rate.

If you have an algae based filter (refugium/algae reactor/algae scrubber) then you would use TRITON Core7 Base Elements.

If you do not have an algae filter then you would use TRITON Core7 Reef Supplements.
 

Do you keep "Reef Safe with Caution" fish?
