Just test the DKH every four days until it reads 7DKH adjusting the dose of the elementz equally.
Yes, you could, but the frags will double in size every year depending on the coral type. I sold a colony of staghorn that was about 18" around. Quit a few corals triple in size every year.
I am doing icp now monthly.
The elements replacing is done manually or can automate?
Congratulations gpwdr on creating such an amazing aquarium.
And also, well done on keeping the updates comming over a relative long period of time.
Dare I ask for a photo update of the fuge ?
Also, what types of algae do you use and recommend for the fuge to enable such success?
Enjoy reading this thread, awesome reef!
You can dose some manually or with a dosser. My corals use a lot of strontium so I use an auto dosser which replenishes the strontium through out the day.
Triton recommends putting in as many different kinds of algae as you can get, so thats what I do. I get it from; https://www.live-plants.com/index.htm
Thanks for the reply.
Do you use another inorganic nutrient export method other than the algae & live rock?
And do you use activated carbon at all?
I use carbon and I switch back and forth between AL99 and Rowaphos. I just follow the Triton reef keeping method. It's a pretty simple and easy reef keeping method.
I find with my tank when I run al99!or rowaphos it bottoms out my phosphate even at 1/4 the recommended dossage and heavy feeding while dossing acropower what have u found to be the sweet spot for running phosban
I had the same problem as you. So I loaded up the tank with fish.
What are you using for lighting these days gpwdr?
Three Kessil Tuna Sun and Three Kessil Tuna Blue.
Plus Two Reef Bright 150 watt HQI metal halides using Giesemann Magachrome Marine bulbs.
I first bought the Kessil Tuna Blue and they just didn't seem to have much power. So I bought three more Tuna Sun and really like the combination. Still the lighting seemed to lack the power so I bought the two metal halide and now I love it. I should say the corals love it. I believe corals love sunshine.
Wow! That is awesome. Appreciate the reply.
I would like to think I am “over stocked” and over feed
Fish in a 90
Atlantic blue tang
Three Bartlet anthias
Blue throat wrasse
I feed twice a day with pellets
And feed three home made “ice cubes” that have all of the lrs combined in it
Plus dose 10ml of acropower daily
Phosphate is 0
I guess I have to find the sweet spot
So it's been 4 years of Triton.
Looking Awsome @gpwdr. Congratulations for keeping this thread updated.
Have you ever had any nuisance algae, cyano, diatom or dinoflagellate problems during the Triton period?
No, There has been some algae in the main display, but the residence take care of the matter.
