Hey everyone, Ive been having thoughts about my tank lately and knew you all would know the answers
I bought my R/O water from the LFS
for about 4 months. I then, went and bought the Kent Marine Hi-S Maxxima R/O unit so i wouldnt have to buy it anymore. It seems that from about the time i started my own water that the coralline stopped growing. I had a minor outbreak of red slime algae and took the advice from this forum to add more actinic blue. The slime stopped growing and is slowly dissipating, but the coralline has yet to come back to growth. That wich was there already hasnt died, but its not spreading either. Ive been doing water changes about every 2 weeks, (10 gallons for a 55 gallon tank). I started my tank with all new rock (for live rock) that the LFS
sold me too. I then, went and bought a rock totally covered in coralline algae and for about 8 months ive been growing everything. While buying the water from the LFS
the coralline was showing up in spots and appeared to be growing. Ive been adding the Reef Plus and coralife calcium supplement to no avail. If anyone knows a trick for helping out the coralline id love to hear it!
Also -- Everytime i add the Reef Plus my durned skimmer seems to just skim it back out, yet the skimmer just skims a tiny bit in between treatments. Anyways- Thanks for reading all that sometimes i carry on
