    Help, acro's dead, nutrients out of control...frustrated!

    Fish load isn't too high. Rocks are "œlife rock" man made, can't get actual live rock anymore. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Help, acro's dead, nutrients out of control...frustrated!

    Hi everyone, Need some help here, I've been in and out of the hobby over the last 15 years. Just got back in the hobby after a 8 year break about 8 months ago. I setup a new 150 gallon SPS tank (5'x2'x2'). Sump: Synergy Triton TS44 with refugium section Skimmer: LifeReef SVS3-30 powered by...

    Another update... Dino's are GONE! Changed out my UV bulb, removed my chaeto and feed the crap out of my fish to get my nutrients up. That seemed to work! Also during the last month when it got hot in Michigan, my pH dropped to 7.4! So I added a scrubber and it's up to 8.01! Fish are all...

    Thanks. I actually took the chaeto out today. Also started feeding heavier. Added 12 Mexican turbos, hopefully this stuff isn't toxic to them... SPS are starting to get Dino's on their tips, very upset about this as they were doing awesome before these stupid Dino's came along! I cleaned my UV...

    Update time... Tank has been so, so lately...been battling this algae, not sure what it is. Thought it was Cyano, was taking over my chaeto. The chaeto was growing like a weed, then slowed way down. I dosed some red slime remover just over a week ago with little effect. Maybe it's dyno's...

    Hey! So the regal stopped eating and didn't make it unfortunately. I was really bummed about it. All the other fish are doing well. I have another set of fish ready to come out of QT in 10 days so will update then. 2 cool ones. So the chaeto is at a stand still. Not really growing. Tried...

    nbd13's Return...150g Custom Bare-bottom SPS/Angel/Modified Triton Method Reef Yes Conspic settled in well. The purple tang was being a brat to him, but they've settled down. Tank is doing decent. SPS are growing and coloring up. Battling some cyano now. Tried red slime remover 2 days ago...

    Quick update.... Since getting into this hobby 15 years ago, I dreamed about getting a conspic angel. I was young and in school, couldn't afford one, so settled for a blueline (was was an awesome fish). Today as a birthday present from my awesome Wife I got the go ahead and received my...

    Thanks. I measured PO4 with the Hanna ultra low meter and for 0.01. Chaeto is growing like a weed, will have to harvest it soon I think. Fingers crossed for the sps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Small update.... Stopped by my LFS and got some hermits and snails as there is some light algae starting to grow on the rock-work. Couldn't resist and had to get my first SPS...so far so good. Will see how this test drag goes before getting a plan together for stocking with SPS. Have 2...
