AFR dosing seems to be stabilizing my Alk around ~8.5-9, 7mL/day (dosing each hour.) Monitoring Alk closely.
I'm going to the mattresses with this cyanobacteria. Blowing off/siphoning all I can easily get to every day. I WILL WIN THIS BATTLE. Also watching anything I can find about best strategies for combating it. Lots of suggestions on dosing other bacteria, so I've started dosing Microbacter7 again. Turning the skimmer off 4 hours a night to let the bacteria grow.
Phosphates are still reading 0 in my daily tests, so I started dosing 1-2mL of NeoPhos daily. I don't want to feed reef chili every single day as that seems to be fueling nuisance GHA in a few spots, and obviously the cyano. I know the algae/bacteria are taking up phosphates, so it's there, and coral growth is going well. I'll just keep on keeping on.
I've added three new corals from my LFS. I picked up some Blue Eyed Blondie Zoas (hate the actual name for these, I refuse to use it), a Forest Fire Digitata 1" frag, and an orange Setosa 1" frag. More SPS and more red/orange!
I really really really want my clowns to be hosted by my rainbow BTA. I've been playing a video for about 8hrs a day on the glass for them. Some days the female will rub up against the BTA's stalk, and nibble on the tentacles, but that's about it - no real hosting yet. I'm being as patient and anti-interventionist as possible.
