  1. Small Frys 120 Update!

    Well, i've had the chaeto in my system for about two weeks now, and have been overskimming and doing water changes like mad.

    I am now happy to report that my nitrates went from 20ppm to 5
    I did spot some aptasia in the chaeto that i was given, so i ended up throwing about 60% of it out... In hindsight, i should have FW dipped it when i got it (but i wanted the critters from it in my tank :s), or i should have FW dipped it once i noticed the aptasia and then put it back ...
