    I am a little surprised Cheryl's hand will actually fit in her tank.☺

    One question, Cheryl- how long does it take for your corals to open after you remove your hand?

    It's a beauty, I lost mine to an alk issue early on.
    Plating out and tabling are my favorite acropora.

    What are you tinkering with?

    Says the other Nano keeper.

    My paws are petite, I'll have you know. :rolleyes:

    About 5 minutes.


    Day 6, no work done on the tank today.

    The Nano Zeo products and Sponge Power decrease the development of film algae, instead of cleaning every day or multiple times I can go 2 or 3 days now.

    Actually leaving the film algae and cleaning it every two to three days at night is beneficial to the corals, they like the bio-film.

    Which other Zeo products are you using? What are the effects you are seeing from them?

    Hmmm... Either you have a wastewater treatment plant for filtration, or you're not really introducing anything into your tank. Sounds like they might just be responding to the disruption in flow, or perhaps they can detect some type of vibe or emotion.

    Pohls, LPS Aminos, Vitalizer and the Sponge Power, the Nano Zeo Package

    All the corals seem to really benefit from them, but they are expensive. I notice some of the corals taking on the pastel coloration, not everyone like that look but I do. With one fish upfront and one in the sump I feed very little, once a day and small amount. It's running basically like an ULNS.

    It reminds me of when an Angel fish swims past an Acropora, a nipping Angel, the coral does not have to nipped it still closes when the Angel approaches.

    would all these be safe in the future with a anemone?
