    Starting a new tank next year.
    jbj 10 gallon rimless
    Its been up and running since March of 2021
    Includes mp10 Xr15 blue
    apex neptune el
    smart ato
    mighty jet innovative marine return
    tune 9001 non dc

    Looking to do a full sps tank with this setup
    probably just going to get some clown fish captive bread for the tank.
    phosphate and nitrate is really out of control at the moment
    looking to implement some carbon and phosban in the near future

ID:	602411 Thanks Alexander.

      I am using a kent aqua dose as a to resivoir and it fits perfectly into the stand.
      The stand is also made of some kind water proof material.
      the hinges appear to be semi rust proof.
      Its a JBJ 10 gallon rimeless

        This is what happens when you don't use Start 3 and feed a little bit of Nori
        Im at 0.83 phosphate after a 50% water change it was twice as bad last week
        I ran into some cyano problems a few weeks ago and dosed chemi clean to the tank.
        My Nitrate is over 5

          These are some of my favs. Coral booster is really a must have if your doing zeovit.

            Did another 40% water change. It kicked up a lot of debris the checker read 91 after the water change which is a lot even higher level then before the water change.

            I tested tropic marine New mixed up water and it came back at 28 which is

            0.086 phosphate.

            0.05 is what I'm shooting for so looks like I need some reef snow plus or phosban

                    Installed a frag rack from zen reef. I don't know if I'm going to keep this look but it would make the frag organized nicely.

                    I got some siporax coming in a week will be interesting to see if it can keep nitrate and phosphate down low.

                    Corals ware coming in a couple months

                      Installed the siporax and my phosphate went off the chart.
                      Theres no way I can put anything in the tank right now.
                      Looks like siporax is a phosphate sink

                          Phosphate is down to 0.1 ppm after using all these products.
                          I must have scooped 4 heaping spoons of probio F
                          Added one drop of all other products did a 20% water change.
                          Dosed every other day.
                          Its a big improvement

                            I have no experience in using mixed products. Just a little question, why not use the complete system architecture of the same product
