Make sure you monitor ALK while dosing AFR. I found with a low calcifying load (my frags are relatively small) that the recommended dose was too high for me. I was maintaining ~8.5 with only 1.5ml/day with a 25 gallon volume - just a heads-up. I checked ALK every day for 2 weeks when dialing in. I've since added more stonies and my daily dose is now 2ml/day. Also, dunno if you are aware, but AFR raises ALK a bit more gradually than other chemicals do, so don't test right after dosing because you will not see the correct ultimate rise from that dose. I dose at lights out - when calcification should be slowing, and test ALK approximately 12 hours later before lights go on and one hour after my ATO does it's morning thing. Took awhile to dial in the dose and see what my tank was consuming. Now I can just about predict what the ALK will be most times of the day.
Very nice. Was just thinking about you.
Love all the softies, nice blue mushrooms.
Lol, listing Apitasia on stocking list.
Really sharp looking system.
