Hello Reefmedic79, yep its me again lol. Getting ready to rid my tank of the aiptasia. I have a recipe using Mrs wages pickling lime, it has the same properties as kalkwasser its just much cheaper. My question is how many aiptasia can I do at once, I have seven total in an 85 gallon reef tank
Clean on canister at a time every 2-3 weeks. Carbon only needs to be replaced every 4-6 weeks. When you clean the filters do it at the same time you do your water changes and rinse them with the water from the tank you pulled out, don't use tap water.
I'm running two fluval 305, do one can at a time or one bag at a time? And how long before changing next one, a week or so? Water change is done, and Skimmer is up and running. Still have floaters!!! Man the guy who had the tank before was over feeding. He was feeding brine in the morning and flakes in the evening. I was good to feed one or the other every other day. Guess the particles are coming off of live rock, guess ibshouod have taken them out and cleaned them before I did water change. Another ROOKIE mistake, oh well it what it is
Don't remove the LR, don't stir up the sand, at most you can vacuum the surface but don't allow it to stir up. Change only one carbon bag at a time, with a gap of about a week between them. Killing aptasia is a chore, yes you can inject them with vinegar, I prefer to put a blob of Kalkwasser paste on them.
I had water tested and found out I have high nitrates. So I'm gonna remove live rock, vacuum sand, change carbon bags, and do a fifty percent water change wait 3-4 days and do a twenty five percent water change. I have five aiptasia growing on a couple pieces of live rock. What's the best way to get rid of them? I'm reading that you can inject them with vinegar
