So far so good with the skimmer ,.... She's doing her job and pulling out a lot of crap out of the water ,... Really hated to pull the plug ( pun intended
on the MRC skimmer ,... That's really a gnarly piece of machinery ,... Maybe one day dr Frankenstein will reconnect the electrodes and fire up the beast again to terrorize the countryside .
I'm getting rather tired of trying to fight with the Alk
levels in my tank using the tropic Marin " pro" reef salt ,..it seems to be extremely low to start off with so it takes a ton of Alk
just to get it to where it needs to be and then it's like trying to chase a ping pong ball in the wind trying to keep up with it,. Calcium seems to be very high ,...Research on many other forums mimic the same findings No matter what they claim on the bucket ...I've got a few bags of instant ocean reef Salt and some Kent salt left over that I may utilize in the meantime , not quite sure where to go from here salt wise but open for suggestions as always .
Still tweaking an idea or two on modifying the sump area too,..but that'll be on the back burner for now ,...hope All's well with everyone !
