Sorry I have not updated in a while. Tank is doing good. The algea reactor is doing great also. I'm pulling out extra cheato every 2-3 weeks. Finding out that filter socks are a pain in the butt. I added a 10 gallon top off tank in my cabinet that last quite a while. So that and my auto feeder make it almost cruise control. I'm doing water changes every 2 weeks. Im sure you'll love the tank.Any updates? I receive my 65 JBJ this week so definitely following.
So I went on vacation for just over a week and forgot to tell my tank sitter not to mess with the auto feeder. I had it set for a small amount and if you wouldn't see it drop food you'd think food wont fall out because of how I have it set.. so with that being said the adjusted it and it was dumping large amounts of food for at least 7 days. And I was seeing algea when I got home and didn't know why. Then I realized my food dispenser was empty and it had been messed with I knew what the issue was. So I'm doing my extra water change volume to try and knock down the algea.how do you like caribsea rock? any ugly algea, high phosphates? have you cure rock?
Hey Tupes, I saw on your local forum you went with a reef octopus 2 for the return. Did you T it off to both returns and hows it working for you compared to the stock pumps. I started work on my stand yesterday so Im still a few weeks away from mine getting wet.
I'll take a photo this evening when I get home.Please update us on recent pictures of the build! Curious to see overall progression of the system as there aren’t many pictures online of the JBJ flat panel tanks.
Thanks, it really came out nice.I really like that stand.
