So far so good with the zeovit reactor. I lost 20 ppm additional calcium today and lost 0.6dKH from my usual. Time to bump up the doser again!
The tank was awful looking the day I installed the reactor. I was really nervous yesterday after I did all the work; dismantling a year old fuge really stirs up some junk!

I still have more to clean. It’s very difficult to get this sediment out of the sump. If anyone has any ideas please chime in. I have a mj1200 I use for work like that, but it was having difficulty sucking it all up due to clogging with larger pieces of sediment. Every time I shake the zeo reactor junk from the bottom of the sump gets into the display and temporarily clouds it.

Just get a CaRx. You got room for another big reactor :cool:

Birdsnest is a weed. But yours looks nice. Mine looks more like.... an actual bird nest.
Lol, mine is looking a little rough after last night. Note to self, don’t frag in the dark, lol.

I’m trying to get them to settle on this rock I had in the 90.
Whoa! Nice colors on those RFAs. I’ve always wanted one. Keep us updated with pics!

They look great! Hopefully you will get lots of babies!
I hope so too! I want to get a few other color variants if I see them. These things are awesome.

Looking for a pink with black tentacles and a black with pink tentacles. I feel I could get some really stunning babies with those colors along with the current ones I have.

I feel RFAs are very often overlooked and underrated. Looking forward to seeing yours open up wide!

So true! I overlooked them for years! I don’t know why. I guess I assumed they would wreck havoc on a reef similar to BTA’s. Really loving these guys and the variants they can come in. It’s like Pokémon, gotta catch em’ all! They are opened a little more today, they’ve moved a little bit. Let me grab a pic. It’s peak so it’s more white, they look even more vibrant in ramp down dim UV/blue light.

I'm not sure if you're familiar with @Ron Reefman and his love of RFAs. I consider him the "go to guy" on all RFA related things.

Ron's tank threads are below and both entirely worth reading. Be careful though as you'll get addicted! ;)

Yes he does know his RFA’s. His thread about breeding them is actually what peaked my interest in acquiring some!
