    nbd13's Return...150g Custom Bare-bottom SPS/Angel/Modified Triton Method Reef

    Hey man, great looking setup! How is the algae battle going? I have seen this problem a few times, I think you should take your macro algae out, it should help let your other algaes grow to help compete for the minimal nutrients the dinos have a hold on. How are all the corals doing? Any...

    Leds vs mh vs t5 ?!

    All 3 work it is personal preference. I will say long term T5s and Metal Halides are more expensive. I prefer LEDs simply because they are cheaper to run, more customization, and you don't have to replace the bulbs.

    Skimmer For BioCube 32 led (chamber1)

    I am not denying how effective a protein skimmer is however I want to see a study that says a protein is as highly effective as you all claim it is on a small tank that has less then 30 gallons of actual water.

    Skimmer For BioCube 32 led (chamber1)

    Why do you want a skimmer on such a small tank? Have you stopped and asked if its really worth it to have one. The micro bubbles that get dumped into the tank from a skimmer and the very little skimmate they produce dont make it worth it to me.

    Can someone explain the benefits of bio pellets...?

    Would it just lead to excessive phosphate and nitrate? I figured it would be a hard no - I'd just like to know the science behind it.

    Can someone explain the benefits of bio pellets...?

    I'd like to piggy back off this thread post. Does anyone have a bio pellet reactor in a small nano aquarium that does not run a protein skimmer? Would running carbon / GFO help remove the excess bacteria?

    How are my zoas still living...

    Have you added anything new recently? GFO dust can really irritate corals, did you add that to take care of the algae? I would consider dipping the colonies also if you haven't.

    What is your favorite tang?

    My favorite is the Sohal Tang I have one in a 300g he's about 9-10inches and shows no aggression towards any of the other fish. That could be because of the Broomtail Wrasse, they seem to keep each other in check.

    Help with magnesium

    Your water quality is fine. Just leave it be and the tank will use it up on its own, no reason to do a water change or add/dose anything.
