The CUC will be here next week Wed/Thurs. I just added the phosphate reducer, tested before on the high end of Salifert so 2-3 ppm
(hard to tell). We'll see what it does in a day.
I'm going to order some powdered carbon and run that on my diatom filter, as suggested by someone on either this site or another.
He runs the lights from 11am to 8pm. I told him to cut it down to 2pm-8pm. It probably gets enough indirect ambient sunlight to where he could just leave them off until 5pm and run until 10-11 pm, or even just run them during busy hours (11:30-1:30 and 4:30-7) just for display purposes.
I talked to him about the 'mush' feeding method, blending up a variety of seafood and freezing it in ziplocks and portioning it out better, so he's going to try that. They suggest feeding a puffer several times a day though, so we'll have to figure something out
