    Wow, that’s definitely a mature and stunning tank you have there. And at 300 gallons, that’s more of a bohemonth, as you put it. Very nice!

    What is your water regimine in detail? What % of you water do you change a month? Do you dose aminos? Iodine? Iron? Potassium? Strontium? Carbon? Anything else?

    Thanks

    Thank You!

    Here's my 1st tank I started in 1996, and the set up I bought from Exotic Aquarium in Sacramento included a kit, with this Refugium Sump with Miracle mud and I have been using it in every system I've had, don't think I ever started a tank without one. I just stuck with it and it works for me.[​IMG]
