Same batch of coral? Looks much better algae wise for sure
Trying to find my before pic but it basically looked like the wd. There was some lettuce algae that remained on the frag immediately following the dip that is no longer there. I’ll pm more pics if you want.

All good. Main thing is it looks like it works with no problems for the acros.

Not sure if you saw on the other thread but Derek recommended half strength if you know you’re targeting algae.

Here's our ultra indo gold torch we got Nov '22 until last week. I'd say it grew a little bit from the single head we received from @SBB Corals

Nitrate spiked for the first time, somewhere between 10-25 from 1-5, im guessing from the interceptor killing off some filter feeders? Po4 still in range. Nothing seems upset.

LOL thats nothing im at 620 at tap lol . brings down to 7 to 14 which i burn off for 5 min and have to use triple di and im at 0ppm
So, back in 2009 I installed a tankless hot water heater. A year or so later, it wasn't functioning properly. Needed new flow sensor and check valve. Happened again the next year. Real pain in the butt to drain the system, replace, etc. Came to the realization my city water was filthy, clogging up the works. Decided to install a, (on the cheaper end), whole house water filter, "Big Blue". Have to replace the sediment filter quarterly and the carbon twice a year, but WoW what a difference with having to not change any RODI filters/Resin as often.

After seeing what gets filtered out of my so called clean city water. Would recommend adding to any and every house! Glad I'm not drinking or showering with it anymore!

1st Pic is new filter and sediment after 3 months. 2nd, whatever sludge that would normally come through the tap.

"Big Blue" 2 stage filter. 20" x 4" filters.
Changed out the blue housings to clear. If you can see the dates I've changed them. Sometimes water is cleaner than other times of the year. 2021 is when I switched to the clear housings. Hated relying on just the pressure gauges, prefer visual as well.

You just set it up where the main comes in? Did it effect water pressure in the house?
