OK.  Rewind 9 months to when it started:

I previously had a converted Jewel Vision 180, which I shifted into my garage when we moved into the house, and then set the new tank up.  Using most of the water, sand and other things. With the back wall linking to the garage, I could not resist the temptation to put the sump in their - removing most of the messy stuff from the lounge and making it a lot quieter too.

I ran out of CO2 and things got well out of stability - most of the maricultures were lost, but the hardy stuff all was fine.  Right now I'm concentrating on getting things back to where they need to be.


Took some close up tonight

Interesting month that i am quite pleased with. With some help from the admins i have cleaned out a lot of equipment and got the calcium reactor and therefore key levels nice and stable. dKH has been 8.3 +/- 0.3 for the past month, with Calcium at 450, Mg 1350 Nitrate at 3 and phosphate barely detectable. I have noticed my pH was quite low at 7.4 and following yet more advice from the admins i have tracked this down to high CO2 levels in the air. I'm about to run the skimmer intake to outside the house and see how that effects pH. If thats not enough then i'll add a airstone in the sump.
