Hiya

I have spotted something on one of my Zoa frags I recently bought, and wondering if anyone can identify it.

Apologies for blurry photos,. But hopefully you can see it ok.

Filtration / New tank - looking for a skimmer
« Last post by Matt_toynton on Jan 19, 2019 10:16:14 pm »
Hi everyone

Just upgrading to a Red Sea Reefer 425xl and looking at a skimmer to replace my Deltec HOB.

I think I’ve made my mind up on a entry - mid range skimmer and going with the Bubble magus Curve due to being cost effective and seem to have good reviews, have any of you had positive or negative experiences with these ?

Would you go with the Curve 5 or 7 on a 425 ?

Thanks again everyone

Matt

Beginners Questions / Water tests and Water Changes
« Last post by clairesteff on Jan 19, 2019 9:24:40 pm »
Hello All,

Just a bit of help please.
Since we started our tank our local fish man did all the testing of our water and advised us what to do with certain things..........
So We recently purchased our own water test kit, it is the Sera aqua test box. Me looking like a mad scientist did all the tests and got these results:
Nitrite - 0.0mg
Nitrate - 50mg (its kinda in-between 25mg and 50mg but more to the 50mg colour)
Phosphat - 1.0mg
Calcium - 400mg
pH - 8.5
KH - 14dKH
Ammonium - 0mg
Salt - 1.026
Temp - 77-78
ORP - 337

I Know some are a bit high and i have done a fresh sea water change, is there a recommended time to test the water after a water change? e.g. 24hrs or a few days?

Any advice? i was going to do another water change in 3 days

Thanks
