Everything tank wise is progressing nicely as I continue my everyday snails pace dosing of alk
etc trying to get all my parameters back in check ,.. The color and growth of the corals the last few weeks have become quite noticeable if not amazing., nice to know that I'm on the right track with things.
I ordered a "next reef" reactor for my carbon replacing the brs reactor that I was never too fond of ,,it should be here sometime early next week. I plan on utilizing the same throttled down mag pump that powers my gfo
reactor by installing a " y" fitting with separate little ball valves to adjust the flows.,.. It'll rest inside my sump also taking out any worries of leaks .
I've purchased a few new corals including another beloved " Martian" coral that replaces the ones that were killed thru my own fault a few months back., so far she looks gorgeous ! ( fingers crossed !) I also have a acropora and a birds nest that will arrive this coming Tuesday from live aquaria and will take their place among a bald spot on a rocky shelf.
It's also time to replace the filters on my brs " Spartan" RODI
unit ,..for those of you that have actually followed this thread know the troubles I had getting everything operating without leaking horribly,.. I'm not looking forward to this undertaking at all ., maybe a cold one or two may help soften the blow (?)
School's still out on wether I like the Hanna testers or not.,I do like the digital Print outs but they always seem so far off from the Red Sea / salifert test kits that I use. I'm not sure if I truly trust their readings or not .
At work these days ( San Diego sportfishing fleet) we're experiencing one of the best tuna seasons that I can remember ,... (and I've been there for 38 years now) ... Yellowfin tuna , bluefin tuna and yellowtail continue to chew for the fleet ,.hopefully they'll continue their biting habit for awhile so we can make some money to buy more corals etc for the tank.
