Lol I always get them confused, especially since baking soda is a powder... Thanks for correcting me, sorry!

Thanks, I thought it was the Baking Soda one.


I'm trying to raised the pH to try to get rid of the dino.

I can't increase flow anymore so I am doing partial blackouts (2 hours light a day) and raising the pH. So far lowering the lights to 2 hours a day is looking like it is slowly helping, the lower half of the tank of Dino is slowly dieing off. Don't want to die off too fast either.

Hydor Koralia Wave Pump Controller

Does anyone have this? If so, did it come with 2 pumps? I have 2 pumps plugged into it and I don't remember where I got the pumps but I hate them, they are Acqueon ACP 950's, are suction cups and they do not stay. I have to pick them up and put them back on everytime I turn around, that doesn't do good for my flows and currents.

I have 2 750 Koralia Evolutions that I would like to use instead but I don't know if they can be used with it.....Does anyone know?

Dino's are slowly going down, top half of aquarium is starting to show less.

Thanks ya'll

I have the wave controller and I use it with those pumps. The only problem I have is that one of them will run backwards every other cycle. The other one works fine and they are the exact same.

Try wet skimming. Just let more skin mate form. Some people even do pwc's that way. They get the wettest skimmate possible for it. Just replace the water!
