    ATI Doser DP-6 - tube keeps pulling in air

    Duna - when you say check valve is to be put at the last part, do you mean the input end that goes into the dosing container or the output end that goes into the tank/sump.

    How To Calculate The PPM Concentration In DIY Supplements

    Evergrow IT2080 Settings

    Thanks Hentz. Yes, these are the reefbreeders 36". I forgot to mention one thing. I have not started at 60b/55w. This is the current max at which I am operating the tank. I started at much lower levels and increased the intensity over several weeks.

    Hi I am using an Evergrow IT2080 LED fixture on my 100g tank. I currently run my lights for 14 hours a day, ramping up from 0 to 60 for the blues and 0-55 for the whites with the lights running at 60/55 for 3 hours. I would like to know if this is good enough or should I increase the...
