No problems ill take some photos now.We need pics of the tank and all animals kicking around in it, then I’ll respond with a thread that describes why your stuff stayed alive this long
if you pack fish and life in an unready tank, and feed them which I assume has happened, they all die fast.
two months means something special about your cycle if the current pics coming are not of a stinky, gray water crashing system.
My rock was dry when i brought it home. I picked it off the shelf. So the daily water changes and adding of stability and prime is to stop?But they sold you wet rock, lined in coralline or was it dry when you brought it home
the degree to which I’m shocked by your pics and overall reef quality is a very high degree of shock
we don’t usually get this degree of skip cycle proof I found a lucky hidden egg today then. the tank has been fed several times, your water is so clear the fish look suspended in air, you have the most cycled and completed reef I’ve seen all year— or all that stuff would be dead.
do nice water changes and cease adding any dosers, this cycle is done due to live rock and skip cycle transfer. I’ll get you the matching work link as soon as we confirm you added it wet to your system vs dry. Use of prime was affecting your tests, time to cease cycle testing and reef free of cycle concerns.
we fixed your cycle off tank pics, not the posted test reads.
Sorry Brandon I didn't see the second question. I have no idea what kind of star it is I just like it and brought it lol it only cost me $40AUDThat’s a skip cycle reef. Was that live rock taken from another tank and moved into yours
is that live giant blue linkia star worth a lot of money at my lfs, one of the most sensitive animals one could own from a reef?
Na I mix up my own water I brought a ro/di system as the closest Marine shop is 2 hours away. Ok with the lights I usually have white and blue on for 9hrs. 8am on 5pm off. What times do you suggest? The tank doesn't get alot of natural light. I have put a red sea light on lay-by as the standard aquaone lights don't last to long apparently. I upgraded the protein skimmer.Your setup is so sharp
hey is that ocean water running the setup or just dry mix salt and the usual ro/di base water
a lot of Aus shops are selling ocean water / was wondering if yours was ocean water due to bacterial complement it brings
i see one anemone /hard to tell in pics in the middle that looks a little white, I’d lower white light levels, up the blues, and spot feed that coral better to bring it up to color
Other than that the reef looked so good I was tricked by it into thinking the rocks were perfectly pre aged underwater
Do yourself a favor and throw the API Ammonia test in the garbage. If you are concerned that you might actually have some ammonia in the water then use a different test kit (just about any other brand will work better than API).Funny you say that I am using the API test kit. It's showing 0 on nitrate but 0.25 on ammonia and nitrite.
