  2. Calcium Reactor & Kwalkwasser

    I have a 210 Gallon tank, mostly soft corals, but am getting some LPS to grow.
    I am running a 818 GEO Calcium Reactor. I also have a 75 gallon sump.
    Just did a water test, everything was either at 0, or right on the number.
    Only test that I couldn't do, was a Magnesium test, I don't have one, was told that you really don't have to test for that,

    Brittle stars
    Asterina (tiny starfish)
    Bristle worms
    yellow polyp zoanthids

    I am picking out Asterina stars as I find ...
  5. Bring on the cycle

    Yesterday I bought about 10lbs of live (seed) rock and filled the tank. I have about 30lbs of sand and 25lbs of base rock in addition to the live rock. Now that the water has been added I am waiting for the ammonia to rise so I know the cycle has begun.

    Below are some pictures form the morning after filling (the day of was nothing but cloudy water). Since the pictures were taken the rock on the left side was moved slightly inward to allow for better access to the glass for cleaning. ...
