My skimmer pump would not work anymore and the price of a deltec 24 volt pump was almost the same as for a new skimmer. so it became a new Acra Core 80 and better spot in the sump. See how this works when it's break in. tried coral snow plus the other day and the water became crystal clear the aquarium looks very healthy.

I am sorry to hear this news, it is a natural damage, or a phenomenon caused by "foreign objects"

It does not seem like the brown algae in the sand want to give up. so try another solution to grab a fish that digs in the sand.
It is a diamond watchman gobies. A diligent worker, he has turned half the bottom in a few days and does not seem to get tired. Have some snails in the past but it is not near what this fish can handle.

Hello Syd, this functional animal looks great! You are doing very well.

In addition, you can check if the following is within the standard.
Ro/di water quality
Zeolite reactor suitable flow rate per hour
Skimmer adjustment
More frequent filter socks replacement
Zeo bac, start3, sp additive amount
Activated carbon replacement
Zeo Coral snow uses, siphon vacuum sand, change water
Ample lighting 8~10hr
I believe that you have already understood the above measures.

What is the current value of NP, the flow of the reactor, and what dose is added

Hi Jacky it's probably time to change the two pre-filters on the osmosis. Has tried to adjust the skimmer so it should skim wet but it hardly gets anything in the cup, probably has too little load in the aquarium so there is nothing to foam out. Clean the filter sock a couple of times a week. Coal and zeovite are changed in time and quantity according to the KZ manual. Water change once a week by 15% and then I clean the sand as well. Must say that I am poor at measuring the only thing I measure is KH and it is 7.5-8. Trust the water changes and what I see in the aquarium.
Must say that the aquarium looks good, the water is crystal clear and no algae anywhere other than in the sand. The corals grow and color out really well. Will send in a Triton test soon to see how it is.

My dosage at the moment.
Zeobak 1 drop a week
Zeostart3 1 drop per day
Biomate 1 drop 2 days a week
Spongepower 1 drop 2 days a week
Corals snow plus 1 ml a week

Feed the fish with freezer once a day as I thaw and rinse off before feeding.

Bets regards Syd

Bought a couple of corals this weekend which I thought had different colors.

Feed the fish with freezer once a day as I thaw and rinse off before feeding. I am not sure about this product, try to reduce feeding every other day.

The coral of the picture looks great. The coral on the left is very easy to be injured by the collision, which leads to the chance of ulceration and bacterial infection. I believe you have no problem.

I am still a beginner. Lps may temporarily provide coral energy with light. I believe there is no problem, and food may not be used by corals. Plankton, bacteria, fish stools, etc. I believe it is enough.

Try to give the coral the right lighting, the corals may be more colorful, and the frozen food can be changed twice a week.

It looks like a good decision with this fish he has managed to turn around all the sand a round and only continues to dig, he is like a spoiled teenager and builds piles where he thinks they should be, may smooth them out occasionally. Should see if I manage to link in a short movie.

I had one of them also, they are really great to keep the sand clean without moving up the sand and let it fall over the corals. They are just known to be nervous and often jump out of the tank.

Thanks for the warning Alexander, will try to secure the aquarium so that the fish cannot jump out.

Best regards Syd

The Red Sea seems to have an anti-skip network that can be considered. There should be a corresponding size.

Hi here comes some new pictures think it is time to start dosing some nutrients for the corals. Kaliendrum coral and gorgonian have pulled in their polyps a little, thought to try with aminoacid lps to begin with. What do you think about that. Today i only use basic four no algae problems and the Hystrix starts to color out nicely and has good growth so the nutritional level seems low.

Looking good! Love the contrast between the BTA and the GSP (?)

Thanks, even I think it is nice with the contrast.
What do you think about aminoacid lps can it be the right way to go? Or is there anything more appropriate?
Tried to take a picture with the pumps running to get the movement in the water, got it nice

You can try AALPS, unless you feed a lot now, be prepared to get an increase in algae (If you're unlucky)

Since you don't have a lot of SPS, perhaps the AALPS is better, but I usually like Pohl's Xtra, since it has AminoAcids and other things in it
