    Sometimes you are at the right place at the right time - do not think that it is many that have seen this like I did - 30 minutes ago

    Is that what a snail does to multiply? I have never seen that before.

    Yes - it was two sitting 40 cm apart that let out gametes. I had babies in the start of the aquarium and maybe it was time again. I have seen it before but never get the opportunity to film it in this way

    I got my last Triton test back today and it was a rather pleasant reading with one exception – my Si concentration. As I have described before – I have a rather odd construction of a DSB – I have a reversed flow through it. The first part of the DSB was constructed with help of Siporax. In the bottom. This part is probably anaerobic, and it seems like the Siporax dissolve Silicia to the water during anaerobic conditions like this.

    The Si readings was above 19, 000 microgram/l. !!!! :)

    I have suspected high levels – but this….

    However, I have decided to make a water change (have not changed for a year) and will start with 50 l tomorrow (15 %). Will probably follow it up with some more WC in the coming weeks. I have also decided to use Triton Pure Salt 2.0. They have a own way of delivering the salt – you get 3 bags with white powder and 3 bottles. In 50 l portions, I like the concept – you do not need to worry about bad mixing and so on.

    Sincerely Lasse

    I like your “Mad Scientist” approach to Reefing!! ;)

    Finally finished reading all 36 pages. It was very interesting and it gave me a few new ideas. I’ll be following along to see what you come up with next. :)

    Ok, noob question but would sponges be able to deal with the Si levels?

    I had a lot of sponges for a while but at the moment its only pineapple sponges that seems to be there. I´m not sure that this high levels not is harmful for my aquaria. I think I know where the problem is – my Siporax. My real problem is that these Siporax is located 25 cm down in my DSB. Its rather easy to dig it up and replace it – will take some hours – but it has taken me 1.5 years to establish my DSB and I fear what’s happen if I disturb it now. But probably I will dig it up in January but solve the current problem with WC.

    I have done one more 50 litres WC today. Yesterday I did a colour comparison between my one year old water and new mixed saltwater. I use an oxidator in order to avoid yellowing of the water. It has been some yellowing in spite of this but a rather slight yellow tint after 1 year without WC I´m going to change from 6 % peroxide solution to a 9 % solution in the future – I´m rising the dose a little.

    @najer How many catalyst do you use?

    I use 2 catalysts.
    Your water looks great for a year old, I had an extended power cut in September so had to do water changes due to die off, my water went "yellow" for a couple of months.

    Double post so I'll use this to say that I'm leaning towards getting and oxydator as well. I just have to decide where to place it.

    Do you have suggestions in that regard?

    Cheers, Tony
