This is a general question and I am really only looking for general answers..
How long after you added your `fuge did you begin to see a decline in nitrates/phosphates?
For sake of comparison I have a 55g and sump, total volume is 65g. I just added a 18" cpr aquafuge with about 2.5" of aragonite sand in the bottom, two small chunks of LR
and a fistful of grape caulerpa lit 24/7 by a 18watt 6500k pc
desk lamp. I've had the `fuge up since Friday and I just haven't seen a drop in nitrates.. still around 19ppm. The caulerpa seems to be growing now just in the past day.
am I just being impatient?
