Another realization today...my sps
are still brown. I can't believe I actually thought my marshall island latana was always brown with blue polyps, rather than yellow! I downloaded "Jonathan's Graph" to give a shot. This is a setup used by an ecotech employee, I don't know his exact credentials, but there seem to be many people using it in several forums, from Reef Central to Ecotech's forums. If I remember correctly the peak intensity on my setup is around 80, where Jonathan's is 100. Shouldn't be too big of a stretch to just switch over to a different graphing of lights on/off.
The skimmer is skimming and the GFO
and Purigen are going strong, the increased flow through the dual reactor is helping keep the GFO
from clumping up. Red bone grass is growing in the fuge, along with hair algae on the side of the glass (as well as in the tank). Feeding is minimal, so I'm not really sure how there is still issues like this. Browned sps
, hair algae, and cyano
in my overflow tells me there is a nutrient problem! Just not sure where it is coming from, especially with all the flow in the tank along with all the other filtration slapped onto this setup. Maybe I should just start buying one of the MP40's that I want for the future upgrade...feedback much appreciated.
