    Looks like the bubble blaster 3000 pump finally kicked the bucket on my RO Diablo. Anyone have 1 laying around or a skimmer that can take a heavily stocked 180? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

  12. Kalkwasser as a paste. Just be careful not to do too much at once because it could elevate your levels. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

  15. Personal not scientific reply: Carbon has done 3 things for me from my observation. Kept the look of the water clearer, controlled contaminates, and also the smell of the tank in check. I run it passively in my mixed reef. It's in a media bag in a high flow area of my sump. I have a reactor but just don't like rractors because if the extra flow needed. There is argument about how long it lasts and how often it should be changed. I change it once a month with a water change. Some say it's only good for a day before it's exhausted while others say it's lasts much longer. I asked mine how long it lasted but it did not answer. It's accepted that carbon removes things we can't see it test for. I do know my tank looks better to me with it. Could be reefers goggles though. You know that phenomenom of "I'm trying product "x" so in my mind I see that it's doing what it's supposed to do." That being said, if I see stuff in my tank looking sub par as a whole, I'll change carbon. I've noticed things getting beack to normal. There is also argument that the kind of carbon make a difference. Ive used a ton of them and can't say that I've seen negatives from any. I've read that some of the cheaper carbons break apart and can be linked back to hlle. I have no personal experience with this. I believe purity with affect the absorbtion capacity. Could be wrong though. I think the type of carbon become personal preference. Extruded and what I call flakes. I'm sure someone knows the real name. It's just the shape of the carbon. I like the extruded pellets because they have less dust. Which means if the hlle things is true, this should be true. I'm currently using rox 0.8 but like I said I've used a lot of different over the last five years. My to requirements are is it extruded and is it as cheap as I kind find at the time I'm buying? You could argue that rox only fits one of those criteria but it was FREE. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

  17. I guess I would call it minced and fine. Some pieces at too big for anthias to eat but they are for the bigger fish. I guess it varies. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  18. I get a seafood blend from the Asian market, the one without the crab since it's usually imitation. Add pe mysis,shrimp, spectrum pellets, garlic, selcon, some cobalt flake, seaweed strips. If it's dry, I'll add a little rodi, but usually not necessary. The mysis is usually enough liquid to work. Been using it for about 4 years. Never had a nutrient problem and there is something for everyone Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I will say that with that glass center brace you will get shadowing from the 2. I know from experience because i think i have the same tank as you. I added a 3rd just to fix this issue and im happy. Not that 2 would not have worked but the shadow created by the glass brace was annoying. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
