I just received the new on the market, Saltwater Bio-Spira from "The Lighthouse", featured on the front page of this site.

Bernie sent it out the next day, 2 day priority, cold packed.

Thanks Bernie. California will definitely throw you a curve ball or two, LOL.

I will give you an update soon. My tank is now set up and I am off this Sunday to purchase a couple of fish.

:P

RodneyCK...

How's things going along with the new tank setup....???

Have you checked any water parameters?? I'm anxious to hear
some info on actual customer usage??

Don't mean to bug you.

Hi Bernie,

You are not bugging me. I am happy to report, so far so good. I added the Bio-Spira last Sunday to my tank along with a small clown fish and a lemon butterflyfish. I tested the waters on Thursday for PH = 8.0, Ammonia = 0, Nitrite = 0 and Nitrate = 0.

Today, I had to get another clown fish to mate or buddy with the first one. He was a failure-to-thrive clown, probably missed his mom or its mate, just sat in the corner looking at its reflection. Once I added the new clownfish today, they both have been bouncing around the aquarium having a ball.

I tested the ammonia level right before adding the second clownfish and it was between 0 and .25 on the chart. The bio-spira website said it is normal to see a slight increase in levels. I figure it must be working because the ammonia levels under normal cycling conditions would have been increasing dramatically by now.

I will keep you posted and give you another update on the levels in about a week. Thanks for asking and I am crossing my fingers.

RodneyCK

OK...Rodney.

Just a suggestion though..... your pH should be 8.3, so you may want
to try a bit of pH buffer commonly available for Salt Aquariums, to get it
up there.
