Brandon, which thread does this one refer toI’m in minor shock this morning at the rash of outbreaks for months long sustained free ammonia in the general forum, 100% acceptance that red sea or api ammonia is infallible, but then total silence from the ammonia dosing thread kicked up in the chem forum on how a five thousand dollar 1.5 yr running sps reef tank is stuck and can’t uptake any extra
the inconsistency is troubling lol, deeply.
On one flip of the coin (how a thread is titled) everyone agrees api is wrong and nitrification is trustworthy, timely and reliable. They agree a cycling chart is accurate for ammonia control after X number of days.
on another flip (thread title, ammonia emergency) all that is out the window and for pages the test is right and a cycling chart for ammonia control is wrong.
where’s the objectivity- our microbiology is suffering terribly in reefing.
reefs get to claim symptomless ammonia non control for pages. In any other form of veterinary medicine, the animal dies overnite.
this thread asking about conversion time for protein to ammonia I thought was interesting as we continue on the scale discovering how fast ammonia is nullified in a cycled system.
“infallible, but then total silence from the ammonia dosing thread kicked up in the chem forum on how a five thousand dollar 1.5 yr running sps reef tank is stuck and can’t uptake any extra”
By the way, when my parents were shocked like you stated you were this morning, they would ultimately blamed too much television watching. I blame too much internet watching
