Update

Some work has been carried out on the tank over the last couple of days. It was supposed to be a simple weekly water change and replacement of zeolite stones but it turned into a lot more

I decided to get a few extra things done which I had been putting off for some time. These included, cleaning the sump out thoroughly, re-routing power cords to make the appearance better and setting up the ATO using the GHL.

Problems arose when I couldn't open the zeo reactor to remove the stones. I had this problem twice before and I guess it was the icing on the cake. Subsequently I purchased a new reactor (something I should have done months ago) and I am very happy I did.

Zeovit filter Easy Lift Magnetic Small 2L


An Aquabee 1000 pump connects easily with minimal space wasted. Some of the smaller stones can still fall through but I will monitor this. Will even consider using a filter pad at the bottom of the stones next time. Operation is so simple and easy. The misses is very happy about this too.


In its new home


The skimmer is performing really well and is super quiet


I will make more of an effort to keep the sump cleaner


With the removal of the old zeo reactor, I had a spare Ehiem 1048 pump. It has been placed in the skimmer section to create more flow and reduce dead spots. It can be seen behind the skimmer pump.


Latest water test results (one day after water change)

Temp 27 - 27.5蚓 (GHL)
SG 1.025 / ppt 33 (Hanna)
PH 7.8 - 8.1 (GHL)
No3 0 (Salifert)
No3 undectable (La Motte)
Alk 125ppm (La Motte)
Po4 0.05 (Hanna)
Mg +1500 (Salifert)
Ca 450 (Salifert)

Fairly happy with these results. ALK is the most important to me. Ca & Mg are high, maybe due to the water change and not thoroughly mixing the RBS. I'm suspecting the Po4 has jumped from 0.02 - 0.03 as a result of me stirring the sand and cleaning the sump. Time will tell

That combo looks good. Plenty of variety so you can change things around if you like.
Thank you sir, I value your opinion!

Your new reactor looks very sexy BTW

Andrew I always have skewed results on PO4 after stiring up the sump. I bet after 24 hours the reading is back to normal.

Very nice V1!

With the little Zeostones in the filter we have all the same problem, that they all fall through the bottom.
We are discus in the german area about it.

I like your clean work an I hope you keep up the good work in the near future too!

Good luck my friend!

Cheers Clint, let us know how it goes. The yellow/orange colour KZ reactor looks sweet.
I will test the water again once I get back. It will be interesting to see if it has decreased.

Thank you Dennis... I had a look at the German forums but can not find. Do you guys do anything about it? It doesn't seem a big problem.

No every body has this problem.

We can only hope, that Korallenzucht find a way.

Hi Mike. The tap and pump came fitted/attached. I just had to connect the pump to the reactor itself. Did your tap come with the reactor/pump when you bought it? If so, the shop maybe able to assist.

Hi, yes the tap came with the pump, but was not attached, looks like the same tap.

I will contact my seller

Many thanks

Mike

Update pics & New corals

I got some more clams (right side). Balances it out nicely now. Finally picked a pink birds-nest yesterday after waiting months for some to arrive.

Your tank is heavenly.

Gotta love those colors.
