Thank you! We look forward to adding some frags, maybe in the next couple of weeks.
We're getting in some pods
from reefcleaners tomorrow or Friday. I'm thinking of putting them in our Whisper HOB
filter - we're not using it as a filter, more for water movement as we have a Fluval 204 canister running as well. The HOB
has just the bio sponge and I've seen some pods
in there already. Is this ok or should we just add them directly to the DT? - We've heard a HOB
filter can be a type of fuge.
Also, can you explain how you did the DIY overflow box and how you're doing the DIY sump/refugium as well? That may be something we look into doing in the future.
Water test results yesterday: both tanks tested 0 ammonia and nitrite, nitrates were 10, the pH stable on the 30. The pH was 7.4 in the 10; not sure why. Any ideas or suggestions?
Will the nitrates be lower once we have more coraline algae growing on the base rocks? It will be nice not to have to do water changes every 1-2 days.
