You might be right Not much to see at the moment, but I'll get a picture with lights on tomorrow if I have time to clean the glass

Ok so got hold of the PAR meter, fired it up and apparently I've been having lower par than optimal (could be the source some trouble) I've been around 250-290 at the top of the rocks, where most of my corals are, and I'd rather be around 350-400 there for "best" coloration and growth. I adjusted the LED's a bit, and I'm at 320-ish now, will lower the light in a weeks time to see if I can hit that sweet-spot.

Quite surprising though, I would've thought that the fixture would put out more light at these settings. Well well, might be an excuse to add a LED-strip later on



Just a quick photo, and not the best. As visible, mostly encrusting going on, look forward to getting the growth back to what started before Xmas

Tank is tugging along, I see some tiny growth, especially in the corals that were worse off after new years.

I've started feeding more heavily, mainly to see if corals benefit from the increased food supply, despite doing this I'm not experiencing any algae problems, which is nice!

Haven't tested anything else than salinity and KH lately, but I'm at a complete loss regarding the latter
I'm changing 10-15% of the tank volume every week (or twice every week), my tank is currently at 9 KH I test the water before the water change, and the "fresh" water has had between 7.5-8.5 in KH the last 5 waterchanges (different salts)
Despite this, KH in the tank won't drop In my mind it would be going down some at least? Not dosing anything that would raise KH either.

Anyways, despite some corals that have lost color, I'm not seeing any of the usual "high KH" signs (tip-burn etc).

Testing is done by 2 different test kits, Hanna and Red Sea.

Well well, I guess it'll drop eventually

Hello blackizzz, is it controlled for that nasty thing?
Changing the water will make the situation worse or help?
In the case of only blue lights, is the situation worse or controlled?

That nasty thing really hindered me, I tried a lot of methods.

That nasty thing has almost disappeared completely. I have my own personal experience and operation. I don't know if you are willing to try it. Maybe the good thing won't happen to everyone's tank, but it does bring the exact effect.

After getting treatment, I thought for a long time and calculated the reason to go back. At the moment, I probably understand... I am not a scientist, maybe my guess is right.

KH is rising, have you added other strains?

The "algae" / Dino's are 99% gone, and I'm not sure how/what I did

I currently dose:
ZS3, BB, KB, Xtra & FWS daily at recommended amounts.
Zeobak 2x / week.
SP, AA, CV every other day.

I increased the light intensity, perhaps 15-20%, yet to test with PAR meter after change

I also feed more than before.

Perhaps the tank has just "matured" with time?

Not quite sure what you mean, but I only dose what's in the post above, nothing else.

Change water once or twice weekly, 10-15% at a time. Salt I use Red Sea Blue bucket, tested at slightly above 8KH. Despite this my KH stays at 9+ in the tank

I am very happy to be with you, this is an exciting thing, great. Maybe tank is "mature"

A new friend in the tank nearing a complete stocking fish-wise. Only a few days since introduction, and the Potters angel hasnt really been friendly so far, but it looks like its been accepted now.

Beautiful fish, can it be regarded as a functional fish?

Definitely! Wrasses are known for eating "pests" such as bristleworms, AEFW, etc. So keeping wrasses are good, it might prevent a problem from ever occuring
