The wife and I have had a saltwater setup for about 4 years now.
We have spent a few thousand on it now, but sadly it's not working out and pretty lame.
OH I wish I new, we have had algae off and on for the whole time.
Name the type, we've had it!
The tank has been on RO
water now for about 8 months but the algae is there, covering everything and taking out our invertabrates.
We hardly feed the fish, we have 2 fish, and loads of live rock
I decided to super filter it maybe that would help, 3 filters, 2Rena xp2s and the stock Red sea max unit, along with a protien skinner.
All our numbers are good and no one has a clue why it keeps happening.
SO, we have had enough and are giving up on a reef system.
WE want to get rid of everything inside the tank and start over again but with a cold water system this time,
We live by the sea so rocks fish and crabs are easy to get.
But I don't want to kill anything.
I will need only a chiller right?
Please give us some advice on a cold BC water set up.
PSST.............wana buy about 100 lbs of live rock?
