Feeling like crap but more cleaning for me today. Gave the sponge another pass and sucked out as much detritus from the chambers after the Fuge that I could.

Powerhead’s were also cleaned and repositioned slightly.

As I mentioned elsewhere I removed the Phosguard I have always used in a reactor with carbon in favor of 1/8th a cup of GFO. ICP revealed high levels of aluminum and suggested GFO to remove. I knew Phosguard was aluminum based but didn't expect to see so much of a leaching affect. Not that it should hurt anything but if Im going to run Triton i may as well follow their direction.

PO4 down from .08 to .04 as of this morning and Ill be watching it closely. GFO scares the crap outa me having nuked a bunch of frags overnight the one other time I used it.

Tomorrow we plant some seeds!

So I know I cleaned a ton but the GFO works insanely well. Down .02 PO4 in less than 24 hours. Actually dosed some back in the tank with dinner just now.

I have only a tiny cobalt 165gph pump on the reactor so my guess is im probably only getting around 100gph through it.

This exercise isn't going to last very long i can tell you that much. 3 days tops.
