    Hey just wanted to send you a personal thank you for being so helpful. Lord knows if I depended on the lfs for advice I'd pretty much be screwed.

    Phurst, Thank you for your help today. I really do not think my Blonde Naso will make it. Is it fair to blame the alarm noise for this, for it is very loud. It has only been about 32 hrs. since the alarm went off. My tank and all inhabitants were in the best shape they or it has ever been b-4 this. Can I reasonably blame this, I do not think I am doing anything wrong. Parameters no2 n03 nh3, po4 ,all 0, ph 8.3, sal. 1.025, cal 400

Fishie additions

by Phurst on 03-15-2010 at 05:09 PM
I picked up 4 chromis and a flame angel from a fellow reefer who was breaking down his tank. The flame is of course a bit risky as far as possibly nipping at corals, but the previous owner had no problems, so we;ll see. I've also done the chromis song and dance twice before, and had the numbers dwindle to 1, but i know plenty of people have had success. including the one i already had, that's 5 in the tank now. they all hang out together, but we'll see how they do long term...

Lighting upgrade

by Phurst on 02-18-2010 at 03:57 PM
So, I finally got around to upgrading my lights from 250s to 400s. With a 31" deep tank, there was no way around it. The tank looks MUCH better now IMO. I did photo acclimation over 5 days and everything seems just fine. Colors are shifting, for the better I hope. I've got some onl 10K bulbs on there until my 20ks come in hopefully today or tomorrow. I took some pics, but with the camera doing it's auto aperture dance, you can't really see a difference in the pics.

Phurst's 150 updates

by Phurst on 01-25-2010 at 10:53 AM
You can see my previous thread on my 150 here:

Couple of updates. First, I have begun 2 part dosing again. I top off with straight saturated kalk, but it appears it can no longer keep up with demand, so i dusted off the old peristaltic dual dosing pump and mixed up some 2 part last night. This is the lab grade pump I'm using.
