What is your recommended Iodine levels or where do you keep your Iodine levels at?They are fed strategically. I keep water parameters at natural saltwater levels as best I can, this includes Iodine which I consider critical! ICP testing is crucial for accurate Iodine dosing. I use ESV brand 5% Iodide for dosing. Iodine levels are very important and impactful to bacterial popopulations.
Awesome,It’s a shade over a month and this guy is pretty settled in. No more moving and haven’t seen any localized deflation spots in several days.
I am doing my no3/po4/mag testing on Wednesday. I’ll see where it’s currently at then. My alk is a bit high at 10.5, but I’ve added about 10 sps recently so I expect it to slowly drop on its own. I like it closer to 8.5. Once it hits the 8.5 area that’s where I will keep it. I’ve been slowly bringing it down from 11.5. So about 1.0/month…got a couple more to go to get it where I’ll keep it.Awesome,
You feeding it anything yet?
Just curious about where your no3/po4 levels are at?
Mine are all OK. Need to move the last split green back to tank here.. waiting for split foot to close up some more. Looks like it'll be fine though. Pic here was several days ago of the two (now one remaining, bottom right on glass) in HT:
The rest in the 65g are good for the most part i reckon; some local deflating here and there but always followed by mouth poop purging then back to glory a cpl hrs later.
One yellow nem has been moving a couple inches here and there and back for some reason the last 36 hrs.. maybe a little bit of water parameter fluctuations making them a little irritated. Had temp issues last week with radions warming the water way too much due to the old solid acrylic top. That has been remedied.
Salinity issues (ato still not set up, hand watering atm), undetectable no3/po4 (hanna HR-no3 and hanna ulr/ppb-po4, feeding more now the 2 clowns, 1 yellow watchman, 2 fire shrimp), alk probably around 6.5dkh (not regularly testing or adjusting yet, apex & trident still in box for this system)..
Basically taking these guys for the ride of their lives...
Plan is to tie this system into the 50g lowboy frag tank next to it, hook up the neptune stuff and get this whole system more stable...its coming and would help the mags out I'd imagine. Risking my no-tech husbandry skills I've learned using all-tech on my 310 system with these $$$ nems!
But for now they're alive and doing presumably well.
Thanks for the update !
