OK, I have not always been consistent with pwc
. Usually 10-15% every 2-3 (maybe 4) weeks with regular fresh water top offs.
Now that I have corals I am committed to being a bit more regular with my maintenance. Friday being a rare day off I did a 15 gal pwc
and cleaned the sump and skimmer. While cleaning the sump I changed out the basic floss pad with a pura pad.
Today my corals look unbelievable! 8) Everything is out and bigger than I have ever seen them. I thought they looked pretty good before. The bubble coral is huge and the red shrooms
as standing up the size of silver dollars(normally quarter size). Even the polyps on the plate coral are sticking out farther than I have ever seen them.
I am going to try to keep up with a 10 gal pwc
weekly and change the pura pad monthly and see how that goes.
All water parameters have been good, but obviously this made a difference.
I'm a believer.
I will get some new pics up later.
