I'm not planning on big water changes. Right now due to higher no3 (hitting 30 after I did maintenance) I'm doing 5-6% a week, 3 gal at at time so about 3 or 4 days out of 7 to get 9-11 gal or 5% approx. Once I get no3 where I want, I'll do maybe 5 or 10% a month. I need to find a better salt. Almost out of the dr foster, then have some io left.Nyos Zero - I run 2000ml (or basically a full 2.0 body). I just remove the black filters, pour the rocks in about an inch from the top and rinse it out with warm water before placing on the Torq reactor.
Nyos Zero - I add 2-2.5ml daily in my tank. Same with Nyos Bio Booster.
Not sure about Red Sea Trace Colors. I don't really do water changes, but I add 12.5ml of Active Elements weekly and 12.5ml of Active Stronium and 12.5ml of Active Iodine every 2 weeks.
Royal grammas are funny. Look in some spots you wouldn't ordinarily think of, like behind the powerheads (that's where mine took up residence).
"Turdeau" and "No.2" out and about this evening.
My display is 160 gallons (200 total) - so 32-40 gallons less than yours, I believe.

How many gal is your display? I can prob. dose about what you do as my display is 190 or approx 220 total water
Sounds like I need to make a dosing schedule and try some google searches for running the RS and Nyos. The trace colors will be automated. Need to test again. Iron, iodine are always zero so I add a bit more of those
I have 1000 ml of the zeo which does about 100 gal, so half what I need, though I have siproax and probably other "stuff" in sump. I'll add some to each filter cup and when I change the boyds in the reactor, I can move it there. Plan to bag it to make dealing with it easier. If I get to the point where I need another reactor, I'm going with the nyos. I had that planned but the reviews weren't good--breaks.
I know where the royal was and keep trying to look with a flashlight. Placed all my corals. I was nervous about the wrasses jumping but they actually swam around my arm! Feeding vitamins and garlic to food and feeding a bit over to be sure they get their share..
wish dave would move...
I have the 3 different RS recipes and amts based on what you are going for. For trace, I think 3 ml was the highest .My display is 160 gallons (200 total) - so 32-40 gallons less than yours, I believe. Red Sea has a Trace Color/dosing calculator so that could be a good starting point.
The new Nyos G2 reactors have redesigned bodies and bases, and the rare issues that some people reported with lids popping off in some isolated scenarios are now practically non-existent. This isn't an issue with Zeo as the rocks are so heavy you couldn't blast them out even if you tried.
You can always try nudging Dave onto the sand. He may have simply found a happy nibbling spot. The black sea cucumbers I have are very different from Dave. They don't like being on the rocks and prefer being in the sand bed.
That is a pretty extreme drop over one day.Wow, so the nyos zero and bio booster seem to work. No3 yesterday at 25 and today at 1.5! Yikes. Cut Nopox in half and will not dose tomorrow or dose half of the zero. Only dosed 2 ml of up to 6 of the bio booster. Will feed a 3 rd time, added spirulina and broadcast AB+ Might do the bio booster every other day and half or 1/4 of the zero. Also have the zeo media but will wait a few days before adding half the amt to the sump. Will test no3 again in am in case reading off, but the hanna vial did not turn bright red/pink indicating nitrates.
harvested my phyto. One batch turned olive green. Not sure it is good.
which is why I'll retest. Possible yesterday was too high. I'd like it at 10ishThat is a pretty extreme drop over one day.
Once things stabilize you can probably cut NOPOX down to zero. But yeah, the Nyos stuff is pretty awesome - I'm definitely a convert.which is why I'll retest. Possible yesterday was too high. I'd like it at 10ish
What I did yesterday was 2ml zero, 19 nopox and a refugium with new and nice big ball of chaeto added Wed. If too low in morning, I'll cut nopox in half again and zero half or quarter
Me too if it is consistant! Okay no3 back at 24. Will dose both at regular dosage and retest after work.Once things stabilize you can probably cut NOPOX down to zero. But yeah, the Nyos stuff is pretty awesome - I'm definitely a convert.
I wouldn't think so as everything else is not only good but thriving. I have sps growth like crazy right now!hi Susan ,sorry about the ele..bummer.
but for the record ,i don't think it had anything to do with your params, lights ,etc.
it's 1 of those things,was doomed before you got it...
