PostSubject: my tank   Sun Apr 04, 2010 10:22 pm

ok all bought some phosphate remover been in over a week now
yesturday bought another powerhead but it seems more like a wave maker
so I Have directed the top inlet nossle the tank came with down.....
the bottom one sort of facing up......
the powerhead on the left is pointing to middle....
and the new one is now breaking the water on the top of the tank.....
so its a waiting game now see if the diatoms clear up.
I See there is more movement but will have to wait and see.
can you see the clowns in the cave.lol

maybe bring the korallia power head down the tank but at the rear blowing across the rock the center of the fron pannel, see if you can rent or buy a little sea hare then give it back to the shop once it has finished


how was your phosphate reading ?

look good tho chez

depends on the stuff tbh

if you have between 0 and 2 then their is a weight ammount you put in this will take out a cirtain ammount of phos

the best way is weekly but when you add the phos remover the leve will start to drop once it drops and levels out you should then change the phos remover

this is only when you are trying to bring it down once it is down then it is best to test until you get a slight rise in it then change the media normally about once a month
