The second pic, is that a goni or a pagoda? Luna
i dunno it was a peice of rock when i bought it those pink things just popped out one day
Ok with the wonderful world of the WWW i found it is indeed a Goniopora, Flower Pot Coral
Which now that i know its supposed to be very delicate i know my water cant be too bad cos it doubled its "fluffyness" since that last pic
not bad for a rock outta the live rock bin at the LFS
That's awesome when you get nice easter eggs in your LR and not unwanted parasites. When I take pics of my tank, I usually turn off the cirulating pumps in the tank to keep the flash from refracting from the moving water. I also take the picture at a slight angle if I use a flash to get nice pics. The picture I have of my puffer, lion and ray are from a DSLR with no flash, only using the tank lighting.
Thanks man i ll keep that in mind, and i did get one pest in the form of a mantis Shrimp it only took one damsel to find him, RIP convict.
PO4 is just a waste byproduct. Unless you have a method of disposing of it, you will see build up, or algae will bloom (and use it for food). A phosphate reactor or macroalgae will take care of your levels pronto.
I have a big wad of Chaeto in my fuge, should that not do it?
Whats going On???
Ok some updates I added a calcium reactor and C02, and i did a round of testing
Dont know whats going on my tank should have been done cycling but its going crazzy again
ANy help?? Tangster, Otty, John the farmer lol
Ok, sorry. I don't know what the CO2 is for.. thought that was a planted fresh tank thing.. anyways. the mini cycle could be from new rock or possibly if you added a few additions at once. You should probably bring up your mag a bit. They usually say around 1400 ppm is about right. Your PH should be above 8.. but your ammonia i have no idea where that could be comin from.. do you have a dead fish in your tank somewhere.. or clean with windex?
The CO2 is for the calcium reactor, and that is the reason for the drop in the ph I was doing some reading and the C02 is doing it wonder if i could cut it back a bit and still have the reactor work properly
And as for the ammonia there are only 1 fish in the system a Pj Cardinal and the clean up crew. NO Windex lmao thats a bad thing lol i use a eye glass shamis to clean the glass no spray
