    Been meaning to keep a log of what's been going on in the tank with the new Sustainable Suppliments etc.
    A couple of weeks after starting the new dosing I had a couple of frags STN , now I am going to say that the tank more than likely picked up something airborne as the polyp extension throughout the corals disappeared overnight.

    The dosing rate was still at half the recommended full dose at the time.
    Could be anything really, STN is one of those things!

    The worst thing about this update was losing that amazing red piece similar to the fire truck, The tank won't be the same again since it's gone:(

    The dozen frags I got last update are still alive and colouring up really nice!
    The tank is due for some TLC today so stay tuned whilst this happens.

    Let's reset , get this tank sparkling again! IMG_1339.JPG

    Alright, I am done! At least for now , tested phosphate 0.00
    Tested alk 5.1kh !! Bit low, found a leak on the CO2 line and replaced all the media in the reactor! What a mission but it's done!
    The tank is cloudy as but I think that will clear up soon.

    She scrubs up alright! ;)
    Shame about the STN but good to know the frags are doing well.
    Will be interesting to see how the supps get on over time.
    My alk has been running at about 5.5dkh for months so your 5.1 should be alright lol :D
