Hi Randy, just finished translating 'What is seawater" ( originally posted on another forum).
It's at: http://www.korallszirtes-akvarium.hu/kb.php?a=215
Thanks and Happy Holidays to you all!
Thanks and Happy reefing.
ok. Until now I have time to do the translation to spanish lenguaje. I will post a link to my blog and give the credits. Happy new year.
I wold like to thanks to @revhtree and @Randy Holmes-Farley Holmes-Farley[/USER] for allow me to do a translation to spanish of the work "Optimal Parameters for a Coral Reef Aquarium: By Randy Holmes-Farley" and post it in my blog "Mi Arrecife".
Many Spanish-speaking people will benefit from such great work. Thanks a lot!
Quisiera agradecer a Revhtree y a Randy por permitirme hacer una traducción al español de su trabajo"Parámetros Óptimos para el Acuario de Corales de Arrecife: por Randy Holmes-Farley" y publicarlo en mi blog "Mi Arrecife"

Thank you for this! It is very helpful.
You're welcome and thanks.
Can anyone achieve perfect zero parameters for ammonia, nitrite and nitrates? I can maintain low levels but never seem to zero them out completely.
You actually don't really want zero nitrate. Some people get there, but the corals starve and are highly unhappy. In fact on unls, alot of people are dosing stump remover(potassium nitrate) to great success.
Why do you want zero?
The first page of this thread gave my recommendation, which is a less than value for phosphate and nitrate. When I wrote it, not that many people were actually driving way below my less than number without providing more organic foods. Now people are, and I wouldn't recommend zero. Unless you actively feed specialized foods for corals, I'd probably aim for 0.2 to 3 ppm nitrate and around 0.01 ppm phosphate (with a wider range OK).
Would you help me in this thread. (https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/how-to-balance-nitrate-and-phosphate.295928/)
Its about the same issue.I would be thankful that any one interested say his idea to me.
The article is very interesting and helpful. I have a question about diy two/three part method. I understood that I have to add both cal. and alk. part together _ of course separability. Is that right? In my tank, the alk. is about 7 and cal. is about 500. Yet I have to add both components? Or I add only alc. part?
Just to let you know I'm almost done translating another of your articles to Hungarian: http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2006-06/rhf/index.php

Randy, you are now a famous person worldwide. Congrats!
Randy, are you still in favor of dosing silicate? This is something I haven't considered and don't see mentioned too often.
