  • Double Dosing AA's

    I've taken Marco Haaga's experience and put it into effect in my tank. I recently started to double dose AA's and I also took John B's experience and started to feed Cyclopleeze and have noticed a tremendous amount of growth on my corals. Every day I see new growth. Im not too sure if its both working together or if its just the AA's. Nothing else has changed in my system. The only downfall to this is that my corals are getting darker and the sand is more dirty with the windows needing cleaning more often from the haze it gets. Any of you double dosing on AA's?

      Every tank system varies even those with the same vol.in their ability to use AA's. Alexander has a zeo-user who doses 25 drops of AAHC daily in his 200g w/o excess occurring, while the next 200g tank maybe only be able to take 5 drops w/o excess. At some point, one reachs the crossroads of color vs. growth. Edward, if the darker coloration is not troublesome, then higher dosing does result in greater growthBob

              Im dosing 7-8 drops daily on my 140g total wv. I was doing only 4 daily.

              I've also noticed polyp extension like crazy now. Looks like marco was right.
