    I think I prefer it when they disappear rather than getting stuck in a rock so I have to take them out, it sorts of makes it much sadder...

    At Just under 10 months old, the corals are really growing, infact I’ve been fragging some of them into the S650

    Enjoy, although as usual, the video doesn’t do It justice to what it looks like in real life, but you get the idea.....

    The S650 has some serious alkalinity uptake these days, I’m having to add 275ml per day of Red Sea Foundation B solution.

    I use the 1kg powder and mix to a solution into a 5 litre container, but with this usage you can see how much I’m getting through.

    Now you can imagine what I’ve spent, so although I don’t want to appear like a ‘tight a...’ Ive been looking at alternatives. You know, save a penny save a pound.....

    Now I’m not going to get another calcium reactor, yet, so I’ve been looking at Kalkwasser to add into the ATO, but only in small amounts, just to reduce the Reef Foundation’ usage and the chore of refilling it every few weeks. I’m thinking maybe at 50% of the normal amount

    The ATO system is Apex ATK with Apex of course, so it can also monitor pH and therefore have an emergency switch off point just in case

    Anybody else do this ?
