Saturday update.......Well, I purchased a phosphate reactor and media for it and promptly hooked it up. Meanwhile I tested some fresh ro
water I just did up. It did show a very small amount of phosphates - .10 mg
/l. I am planning on testing again later this evening to see if there's much of a change in the tank after installing the phosphate reactor.
At this point I can only assume that it has to do with my feeding schedule and perhaps I need to cut back.
In the mean time...I am planning on 2 pwc
's over the next couple of days to lessen the phosphates....do you think a 20% pwc
done today and another 20% tomorrow will cause any problems?
Also, one last thought....Our water is fairly soft and I have a low alkalinity reading most of the time. I haven't tested it in the last week. Perhaps I'm reaching at straws at this point, but would this effect the phosphate reading in anyway?
Lastly, hey Kurt....
... I like the chicken bone thing and dancing. Make sure you have someone take pictures so we can all know how to do it ourselves
Sure thing....I'll do it....in exchange for that beautiful new Acanthastrea Lordhowensis you just got.....deal?
