    Need some suggestions for new Skimmer

    I’d be trying for some 20-30% water changes on a consistent basis to clean things up. Then the skimmer can maintain it

    Have I killed my corals

    I think I’d do a few changes while monitoring levels. Might be good to look at something like microbacter 7 to help things.

    Need some suggestions for new Skimmer

    You are more than welcome! I think your challenge here will be the space you have may be small/tight for the skimmer you need for your size tank. but, the reef octopus family of skimmers is where I think you will land, good value for sure

    Need some suggestions for new Skimmer

    How about the Regal 200SSS 8" Space Saving Protein Skimmer (VarioS) - Reef Octopus. If you can fit something in the neighborhood I think it would perform well.

    Need some suggestions for new Skimmer

    Welcome back! Can you tell me a little bit about where you’ll place it, how much footprint room you have as well as height? In sump or out? And most importantly, budget! Ill wait for that until I make a recommendation but the reef octopus ones are a really good value and the new varios pumps...

    Blue's 40G Mixed Reef

    Tank looks super healthy! Flow is so important when trying to keep detritus suspended. I just added 4 mp40s to my tank so the flow is definitely rocking!

    Looking for some guidance on my chemistry

    What kind of salt are you using? Some big water changes with a quality salt should get things turned around for you, just don’t go too quick. Alk swings can be tough in corals.

    Fleece Roller Filters and Red Sea v3 Sump

    I hate filter socks so In my new sump, I’m sockless. It’s big enough that the detritus settles and the skimmer gets first crack at it. I just do water changes through the sump where I vacuum it out. Now for your question, I love the idea of them but I hear they jam so I’m assuming they need to...

    HELP! Strange measurements in my water chemistry.

    You can absolutely do a 100% change......especially in a fish only tank. Now if it were me, I’d do a few, 40-50% changes because it’s easier.

    Highly's Red Sea Max 400 Mixed Reef

    Well I’m hoping this won’t be the case but you may have problems with your tank going forward. Your rocks and sand all likely absorbed the copper and that can have bad effects on corals and inverts for years to come. Continue to run carbon but I bet if you sent out an ICP test, you’d see...

    Highly's Red Sea Max 400 Mixed Reef

    I’d love to see an update. Takes are working but even when I’m busy I enjoy the mindless nature of it. Just do water changes, that really helps! I took 5 years off but now I’m back in for good!

    Pancho’s Reef S-500 Roller Coaster

    My Radions I believe run a small wattage lunar light for about 3 hours at night then it goes off so what you’re doing sounds like it’s in line. Looks like the zoo trip was fun!!
