They are definitely dinos. Took a picture to the local fish store and they confirmed. I’m 2 doses of hydrogen peroxide in and the tank is already starting to look better from my sneak peek behind the bag. So by Monday night I am hoping to be good to go. I am a little worried about the coral not getting a lot of light for the next few days but I am sure they will bounce back. This one snuck up on me and I wasn’t expecting it. While it is not a great thing, the amount of research we do to try and resolve this only makes us smarter in the hobby, and that makes me smile!ouch! Sorry to hear that! Are you certain it's dinos, not just diatoms?
Anyway, I know you'll win the battle! Keep smiling!
I'm also battling with 0 phosphate right now
I added it in my first chamber right where the return is. I have the light mounted on the cover right above that chamber and run it during the day with the rest of the lights on. I am hoping to stay ahead with the nutrients and avoid the 0 phosphate issue that I was having as like I said before, I believe that is how the dinos got their start. Thanks for following!!!Brilliant! And thanks for the details on your procedure!
When you say you added chaeto, did you add it to the back compartment or straight into the tank?
I’ve been thinking about turning the middle compartment into a small fuge but haven’t pulled the trigger yet, even though I have a tunze light for that purpose. Im also concerned about my phosphate as they are hovering around zero.
Mario,Congrats for the tank.Love the golden hammer.......Did the Sicce syncra 1.5 fit in the return chamber of the WB20 ? Regards
Thank you so much Dave, this was the info I needed, 'cause I'm going to change the return pump that came with the WB20 (after 1 year not working anymore ).Mario,
The 1.5 does fit with a little room to spare. The pump was a little loud at first but has quieted down over the last month. I also made sure it wasn’t touching either of the sides when I initially set it up with the tank dry. I just used a couple of popsicle sticks to center it in the return chamber and then removed them afterwards. I have it turned up ¾ full power and haven’t had any issues with it sucking any of the other chambers dry, even with a skimmer going in the center chamber. Hope this answers your question. Let me know if you have anymore!
