Went to AAC's opening day  in Harlow, it is a very nice shop, ended up buying a strawberry shortcake frag and a yellow tail wrasse and a red head fairy wrasse, both went in and were swimming around and eating within 5mins, also stopped using nopox and started dosing nyos zero and bio bactor similar to nopox but not as aggressive and managed to work out how to download lighting schedules for my hydra 26 hd units, using the current David Saxby settings and liking it so far, but will see in around 4 weeks if It is ok or not.

I've always fancied going to AAC, it's probably about 50 mins from me, would you say it's worth it?
I've bought things of them and found Paul the owner very helpful.

All the nyos stuff arrived today, gonna be changing from the red sea reef care program to Nyos. Hopefully will get good results plus it works out a lot cheaper long term.

You only need between 1-5ml per 100litre depending on what is being dosed, it recommends to start dosing at half the stated dose, just got to find the time to set up the doser and start dosing, bit busy with work at moment with the flooding caused By burst water main in Islington

@Amo Manik Where did you get that little lot from please?

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

After going thru a bad stage with my tank, losing sps corals for a while I got to the stage where I was thinking of packing it all in or going fish only. My wife mentioned this to my  Lfs and the owner talked over what had been happening with my my tank etc, anyway after some good advice things seem to be taking a turn for the better and tank is slowly coming back to life, I brought a couple of sps frag two weeks ago which are doing great and today brought a gomezi frag ..touch wood things will go in the right direction now.

It turned out that the red sea Phos test was giving wrong results, I had changed all my other test kits to Nyos ones apart from the red sea as it wasn't brought so long ago and plan was to start using Nyos Test kit once red sea was done.  It was phosphates, red sea kit was saying they where 0.20 when I tried the nyos kit it came up .50. Lfs used a elos kit and got .50 as well, I added a reactor with 500ml rowa phos tested daily for three  weeks and it came down to 0.025, which is where it should of been according to the red sea test.
Also Alkalinity was at 6dkh and needed to bring this up to 7  - 7.5dkh as it had thrown my Calcium 500 and Magnesium 1500 out. I also stopped dosing trace elements and started dosing Alkalinity + my alk has been at 7dkh for about two weeks now and Calcium 450 and Magnesium 1350. I have been test every other day now as feel I should of been testing more then I was originally. Hopefully I should be able to keep water parameters stabilised and pick up anything with regards testing. I know I will need to start dosing Calcium and Magnesium in the future but water changes fortnightly should manage this for now. My sand is clear of any algae and nice and clean now also. My plan is to slowly cut back on the carbon dosing and eventually stop all together. Currently I am changing 250ml rowaphos  roughly 12-14 days.

 :O  The trouble a dodgy test kit can lead to...  Been there too.  Just shows how important keeping levels where they should be is.  Glad you worked it out and got it sorted.

Not been posting on here for a while as a lot been going on personally....got made redundant so been busy applying for jobs managed to sort something out and starting new job on the 12th March, anyway brought a Clarisea sk3000 Gen 2. Got it temporarily connected and running. Must mention that it needs to be assembled but is not very hard to put together. I had been running a filter sock week prior to changing over and you can see the crap getting caught in the filter roller. So far I am impressed but will see in  a couple of weeks to see if water clarity is better as people have reported.
