Dary, how's the tank?
Well., it's been a few weeks since I've been back here,..sometimes life just gets in the way !! Re.how the tank's doing?.., I wish I really knew,. Both good and bad,.. I had to stop and rethink a lot of things trying to figure out what went wrong lately,... For the last year or so everything that I put into my tank Coral wise grew like weeds ,..I never bothered to really pay too much attention to what levels I had in the tank and usually just left my PWC
's replenish what ever was used up....then one day I was advised ( lfs
) to start to monitor and replenish my calcium etc etc,..as my levels were a little low,... I think that this is where everything went downhill ,...... Ive lost a lot of my corals that I've had for a long time,...I finally decided to go back to my basics and let my tank fend for itself with the PWC
's without my frankenstien interference ... So far things are looking much better,...no more coral die off ( fingers crossed)...... the less I do the better things seem to be.
I think it was mr.x who kinda does the same thing,...just let the water changes do the work. In my situation I think this is my best option .
I did replace my two little fishies reactor that were joined together via one pump and a little tubing to one of the bulk reef supply's duo gfo
/ carbon reactors.....the canisters are the same as in their RODI
setups,....so much cleaner,..absolutely love it.
While doing today's pwc
I decided to try and reintroduce " pyscho " my picaso triggerfish that has called my sump his home for months ( after getting the snot kicked outa him by my rectangular triggerfish ) back into the main tank just to see if time healed any bad feeling that they had,..... Well,..that lasted about ten seconds before the rectangular trigger started violently attacking him again.....back to the sump he goes again ,..:-/ ..
Well, right or wrong that's where I am today.....
