    Just a couple updated pics of the system set up in my office and a FTS. Tank is looking VERY empty at this point, but if you've ever had a tank packed with SPS that totally engulf any and all space I think you'll agree with me that negative space is crucial. 😀 The SPS I put in here will provide my structure and scape. Hopefully the FTS above will be the starting point of tank soon to be packed full of healthy SPS.

    So, my relationship with Jebao ends today. I came home for lunch and yet another Jebao powerhead has crapped out on me. It's has only been in the tank MAYBE a week and a half. Totally uncalled for. With the money I've spent on all these Jebao powerheads I could've bought one nice powerhead from Ecotech/AI. I'm DONE. Not another Jebao product will be purchased by me. I'm surprised the DP-4 is still working...I think I'm going to try out that AI Nero 5 powerhead.

    Jury is still out on the speed of media usage for me. It’s only been running about 3 weeks now. I got one of the jumbo reactors from BRS and the first full lasted about 2 weeks before I noticed the pH trending lower. I refilled it just before I went on vacation so I’m hoping without me in the house for hours each day it will last a little longer. I think if 2 weeks is the average for me, the 7lb bag of media would last me about 6 weeks @$35 or so per bag. I should add that I also drilled holes for a couple of 1/4” tubes to the outside that I now use to push air to a couple of air stones in the sump. I now have them running into a standing piece of PVC so most of the bubbles don’t get into the sump. Originally I had it feeding the skimmer intake and only saw a 0.02-0.04 average improvement in pH, and would still range from 7.9-8.07 on a daily cycle. After the scrubber it stays stable higher. I have the pH probe on the CaRX set to 6.5 currently.

    I wish mine were anywhere close to those numbers. I got up to 8.0 yesterday with windows open all day. Normally 7.6-7.85 daily ph. I have growth but feel like could be much better if I had higher numbers. I’ve used scrubbers before on the 300, it exhausted very quick tho a couple days at max. I will give it another shoot on this 90 maybe smaller skimmer will Not exhaust the media as quick. Maybe even run only during the night. .

    I looked into CO2 scrubbers a while back. I just don't think my budget can handle the expense of the media right now as far as how fast it seems people blow through it.

    I never really monitored the pH in my old 120g, but the few times I checked it was around 7.95 or so. I don't remember it getting above 8.0 except maybe on a few occasions and especially not after I added the CaRx. I still got what I felt was amazing growth at the time. This tank's pH is running about the same as my old 120. I'm actually monitoring pH this go round and it seems to fluctuate anywhere from 7.95 to 8.1. I would like to get it higher and keep it there, but I'm not going to let that stop me from adding the CaRx. I saw too many positives from the CaRx to worry about pH.

    I added a CO2 scrubber to my tank with the Reactor and it’s been doing a good job at keeping the pH in a tolerable range of 8.07- 8.16. My only complaint is that the purple shift in the BRS media is very slight if the light isn’t just right or you toss a few pieces of new media on it to compare.

    You may want to look at the CO2 scrubber options that bulk reef supply sells. I haven’t used a scrubber myself but have found others that claim their tank showed good results and enhanced growth after installing .

    My carx is sitting in the garage. Wish I could use it. So easy to use, don’t have to worry about dosing and pure stability. But, I don’t have good gas exchange in my home and the carx lowers my ph too much. .

    I was always worried about adding a reactor to my system and found every excuse why I wouldn't because of the big upfront initial cost. But soon found out that most successful sps dominant tanks rely heavily on the reactors ability to keep parameters rock solid. The Skimz brand has really good reviews and will be worth its weight in no time. I will never run a tank without a calcium reactor again!

    I figured if I was planning on adding a calcium reactor within the next year that now is the time to buy. I just ordered this Skimz ca reactor from BRS. Seemed like a good value with the black Friday sale they have going on right now. $52 off the original price. I also had to buy another pH monitor. Sucks having to rebuy reactors and monitors and such, but the flood ruined all my old equipment. My old reactors pumps were burnt up and the acrylic was pitted and stained with whatever contaminants were in the flood water. Definitely wasn't going to take a chance in using them for this reef. At least my CO2 regulator was salvageable. Glass bubbler is cracked and the regulator is a little rusty, but the regulator/solenoid still work and the reactor has it's own bubbler.
