Thanks! I am overskimming a lot especially since my bioload is pretty small for a 180-gallon tank. Here are some pictures of how it is working below. The first pic is 5-days worth of skimmate, then I decided to make it little wetter, the last pic is from only 1-day.
A lot has happened since I last posted. I also took my VHO
actinics out and added 1-60" T5HO with an individual reflector and and Aquablue bulb. I wanted something which directed more usable light for the coral, so this was my choice since the VHOs I had didn't have any reflector whatsoever.
I also a battled a bad case of Valonia (Bubble Algae) and finally beat it with the addition of lots of a certain type of hermet crab, about 6-Emerald crabs, a Scribbled Rabbitfish and a couple hours of scraping the rocks one Saturday morning.
Some new corals I added lately are the Tyree LE Royal Plum, Tyree LE 20k Leagues Lokani and ORA Tri-Color Valida
