Looking good :)
How is it going with Phosphate and Nitrate when running with that ClariSea SK3000 ?
I had a SK5000 in my Reefer 425XL, but it was removing too much, so I coundn't keep the values above 0 :/

Have a look at my thread if you'd like :)
Funny you ask that. I recently gave Reef Roids a try and after 3 broadcast feedings it had my Phosphates at .14 with a hanna checker. I feel that is high so I stopped using them and did a 20% water change. Hopefully I can get them back down into the range of .03. Nitrates went up a little as well and currently is reading 10 with the red sea test kit.

Tnanks for allowing me to join. I had a 55 gallon long about 15 years ago. It was done on a budget and effected my enjoyment in the hobby. This time I made sure to correct all the mistakes I made before and also added automation to help make the hobby more enjoyable. I added water to the tank June 16th. Currently I have two clowns, two cardinals, a fox face, a lawnmower blenny, 6 lined wrasse, yellow tang.
