    Pics of my reef today...

    I figured I'd show you all how my tank looks today.

    Here's the current state of the tank as of this morning at 11:30am...

    dKH: 9.8
    calcium: 420
    pH: 8.17 (This reaches up to 8.21 at peak)
    ORP: 400
    Temp: 77
    SG: 1.024

    I stopped dosing ReefBuilder on the 15th (5 days ago), and the last waterchange was 10 gallons on the 14th.

    So the tank seems to be back on balance. Ammonia and Nitrates are another story

    Ammonia's still showing .3 and Nitrates are around 25-30.


    Wish I knew what was up with that....

    Anyhow, on with the pics..

    Looking at your tank it's almost hard to believe you have an ammonia and nitrate problem, it looks great to me. I sure hope you can get this figured out soon, must be frustrating.

    frustrating ain't the word.
    Thanks for the kind words though. It's only through encouragement that I've managed to keep my sanity.

    wow, you tank looks GREAT! so nice and clean. but it doesnt seem like you have too much live rock - how many pounds do you have in there? perhaps not enough to process the nitrates? but i would expect you to have serious algae issues if your nitrates really were that high! my nitrates are less than 10 and i cant control my algae... YET.

    lol... thanks alrha,
    it went through it's algae cycles. I'm sure your algae should come and go. Thanks for the kind words.

    Algae in my tank has really started to dissipate. I've cut down feeding to once every other day for the past month.
    It seems to have helped.

    As for LR, there's approximately 60-70 lbs in there.

    i havent fed my tank in a month and i still cant get rid of the algae! - i'm jealous. hopefully the new refugium and tons of snails will start to help turn the tide. - i guess you must have a strong clean up crew. well i am sure that someone of your stature can fix anything.
