Yeah can give that a go. Was just eager to get it sorted while I'm waiting for the replacement tank. The rods should do the trick.

I've seen a demo of Nyos Cement before and it looks pretty good ... :)

It's good stuff. Think I was asking a little much of it.
New plan of attack should sort that :)

Replacement tank has arrived and is now safely in place. Phew.

The retailer and EA were great, organising the solution in less than a week.

I've now got the jecod dcs 7000 return pump recommend, and a new vertex Zeovit reactor so think I'm there with equipment now.

All that's left is a few bits of return hose from the local garden centre, and to finish of the scape.
Should be getting wet this weekend!  :grin:

Cheers Tim, something a bit different.
We've recently bought some new furniture, so when I saw that the EA was available in the same finish, it made it an easy sell to the Missus  :grin:

Hey @olyoz will you be doing zeovit dosing in your new tank?

Hey Steve,
yes!
I've been running it with great success in my current tank, so will be continuing the system on the new one, all be with an upgraded reactor.

I'm using the korallen zucht coral aragonite sand in the new tank too.

Ahh ok would that be the ZeoBak, ZeoStart2 and ZeoFood7?

Oh my!  Just when I think I am starting to understand things - I now have no idea what any of that is - is it something I should be looking into for my new set up? :O :O

I looked into it but the prices put me off a little, I've gone the MB7 and ethanol route. May look to change in the future though.

Don't panic Debbie! It's something you can look into, it's interesting stuff but you don't need it. Always worth researching interesting stuff.
Personally i prefer to keep things simple but maybe in 6mths you'll find yourself wanting to keep certain trickier corals and then knowledge is power  :grin:

Thanks:
