Haha, that's awesome Hank, where were you 3 years ago when I could of used that advice

Pretty mad at myself... I moved into an apartment and didn't have the right faucet adapter for my rodi so my tank got filled with distilled and tap since I was in a rush. Just tested the tank for phosphates today as my red planet, and mind trick monti have turned poop brown and have 0 polyp extension. Phosphates are at 0.47. Ugh I'm so dumb, I shoulda known better. My red planet was the jewel of my tank and I'm now in a battle just to keep the dang thing alive . Gonna do a 10 gallon wc with rodi tonight and get some GFO this weekend.

Have you thought about using one of the phosphate removers? I've been using red sea's nopox, which is better on nitrates than phosphate, but have been pretty content with the use of it. Basically just like vodka dosing.

I used to vinegar dose but didn't see a big change in phosphates so I stopped. I'm probably just gonna throw some phosphate remover media in and up the skimming as the bubble magus has already pulled out half a cup of nasty. I'm probably gonna do 2 10 gallon changes this week/weekend too. Hopefully that should bring it back down.
