    Now you do not see such a uniquely beautiful tank like that everyday. The choice of coral type and arrangement is so interesting and aesthetically pleasing. Add your sump and Triton experience and this is a great thread, well worth the read. Thanks.

    It has been nine months of Triton, nothing dying everything growing.

    Wow so why are we not seeing a lot of people showing their triton experience on the SPS forum? I know their are a lot of Zeo vite people out their, Triton should be able to compete with the Zeovite reefs. Calling all Triton users to post pictures of their success.

    Is Zeovite a country?

    Haven't herd from you guys in a while, how are your LPS corals doing with this triton method.

    Hi!
    The triton method has released me from so much.
    Once I started it i noticed a huge drop in no3. Now i have to dose it.
    I dont change water, i test every 30 days.
    Now when it comes to coral its hard to say. I have to quite experimenting treatments for pests to fully see the results.
    At the same time that is my goal so its a double edge sword.

    My SPS corals are growing well, but I'm surprised at the slower growth rate of the LPS corals?

    Do you think it has anything to do with lighting?

    Definitely not the lighting, the only change is the triton method. I think the triton method might be limited nutrients for the LPS. My tank is predominately SPS, maybe that an issue?
    I'm thinking of turning off the skimmer for one or two days a week.

    Thanks Gene!
    I have to dose no3 since switching to the full triton method.
    My lps live but do not thrive.
    I have found it to be a battle

    I have few lps in my tank and they are thriving
    I am predominately sps and the results have been great. I had some issues with my alk being too low but I finally dialed in the right amount to keep my alk around 7.8 consistently

    For a 500gallon system I need to dose around 350ml a day to keep my alk close to 8

    Are others finding that they need to dose this much ?

    I dose 216ml/day on a 145 gallon system, I think were all dosing more and more as time goes buy.
    I turned off the skimmer for two days per week because the euphyllia coral haven't done so well this year. I'm think they need more nutrients?

    Interesting. Maybe the LPS need a "dirtier" enviorment than the SPS do. Is anyone adding amino acids to the reef in addition to the Triton base elementz?

    So it has been 1 year since starting the Triton Method.
    The only problem so far is growing the Euphyllia.
