I took a nitrate reading on my tap water and got 20 ppm
I used to have lots of algae issues, but since I started the large water changes (after those pictures/video were taken) that algae has died down pretty much entirely.
So pointing powerheads towards my LR
would be a good thing? I can try that.
I tried using multiple types of light bulbs for my chaeto. The first was a regular CFL from Wal-Mart, then I got one that was made for refugium lighting but I don't remember what type of bulb it was...
I have an RO
system. Back when I was able to get it to work at all, it would produce maybe 15 gallons of RO
water a day, and about a million gallons of waste water. I tried getting new membranes and a booster pump but this thing just didn't work for me at all. It was an Air Water and Ice RO
system, looked a lot like this
I remember what I paid to get that system in the first place, and then what I have to pay to try an get it to function at all. That's a lot of money. Does it really cost that much to make RO
water? There's got to be a better way...
