  • What's next after 1st change?

    Hi,

    Am i still in phase 1? going to phase 2? what are the next steps?

    Your now in Phase II.

    What was your original dosing schedule and your total volume? Also, how are your corals? how are they reacting to this new change? by color, polyp extension, and growth. This will let us know if you need to up your dose, lower or continue the same dosage.

              Hi Stanley, I'm glad your corals are thriving Remember to go slow, you'll get to goal, as each system is unique in it's response to lowering nutrients. Color WILL brighten once nutrients become poor. Be sure your reef is not trapping detritus & that your bottom-most LR is not collecting gunk. If so, redesign your reef & tank circulation to avoid this nutrient factory If your are not having excess bacterial film as slime on your upper LR or diatomaceous accumulates on your panes, I'd recommend continuing the same zeo-component quantities for this next cycle. Remember to dose ~ 4 1/2ltrs of zeolites with the correct water flow of 450gph[1800l/h] & ~1 1/2ltrs. carbon. Bob

                Thanks Bob,

                I have 2 reactors with each containing 2 to 2.5 litre of zeolite and running at about 1000 l/h flow. I recently change the carbon and place 3 new 500ml of carbon on it. although the water seems cleaner but some corals seems to react slowly. Maybe due to the bulb that i have.. I remembered i have BLV 10,000k 400W SE bulb which seems to be quite yellowish but the corals are coloring up. But now change to coralvue bulb 10,000k which has a lower par, but very crip white, my sps seems doesnt response well. Will change back to BLV.
