What are your water parameters looking like? What kind of fish are in the 72?
The 72 tank has 2 clown fish, a yellow tang and a 6 line wrasse (I just got rid of a large hippo tang a few days ago FWTW). I have 2 rbta's, a ton of lps
(which I'd be happy to list if needed), 2 leathers and 1 devils hand, 1 large maxima clam and a medium sized crocea clam.
As for the parameters....
= 380 (I know this should be higher)
is approximately 7 dKH
Phosphates (I hate this subject) .1 ppm
I have a phosphate reactor that is running phosban in it.....I change the media about every 4-6 weeks. It seems like I constantly battle phosphates. I've changed my resin (in the ro
unit) every 3 months just for good measure.
I think I've included everything....if I missed something necessary, please ask.
