    Hi guys, Quick question. When preparing CarbL. 1.Do you use boiled Tapwater or Boiled RODI water? 2. Why must it be left in boiled water overnight?

    Hi vinny I have cut dosing as advised. Colours seem to be returning, thank you. 1. I have also recently added a large T. Maxima to the tank. Do I need to make any adjustments to my dosing schedule as a result? 2. When is the best time to dose CS? Currently I dose in morning when lights are off. But is there a better time, e.g during photoperiod or sunset etc.

    Hi vinny. I have noticed coral colours starting to darken over the last week. I made 2 changes to my system. Bit of a schoolboy error, I should have made only 1 change, sorry. These changes were 1. Started dosing 1/2 spoon CS x3 week 2. Increased organics dose from 2ml to now 3.5ml daily. What do you suggest to bring things back inline?

    great, thank you vinny. I will incorporate the following routine now M - RV T - CS W - CB and CE (not dosed simultaneously) T - CS F - RV S - CS and CE (not dosed simultaneously) S - CB Along with daily MinS (automated) Does the above look ok, or should I change anything. Is it possible to stop dosing Ultra Organics as it is often another thing to remember and I would prefer to keep things as simple as possible? or will my corals suffer as a result?

    Can CS be dosed on the same day as CE? What are the signs of overdosing?

    Thanks vinny. How does alkalinity affect colouration, could you please explain? Will I benefit from introducing coral sprint? If yes how much and when?

    Hi Guys, Just giving an update and asking for some more advice please. So everything in the tank has been running stable for some months now. I dropped my dosages of CB and RV as suggested by vinny and increased feeding corals. Things seem much more stable now. My goal is now to create the best possible colouration I can for the SPS and would like some advice on how to do this. I have seen some amazing tanks in the FM facebook group and I would love to get my tank to that level. Corals are healt…

    Thanks vinny Coral Colouration and health by and large seems really good compared to before. I have today noticed something new. Some acro have had poor polyp extension and colouration with stripping from base. Upon inspection and removal, I suspect AEFW. But I have seen no eggs and the RTN is from the middle of corals rather than the base up which is normally the case. I was planning on dipping the coral using FM Dip and scraping away any eggs if found. I have added a picture of an acro and tak…

  • Ok Vinny So I am now dosing: 0.04ml MinS Daily 2ml Organic Daily 0.5 RV x2 weekly 2sp CB x2 weekly 10ml CE x2 weekly I was looking to reduce the bactoballs from 18 to 14 on the next change as I get white film on the glass often and the balls are now shrinking at a much slower rate. Or should I keep 18 balls?

  • Thanks vinny So to confirm, I will not be adding "excess organics/nutrition" using the three, Reef vitality, minS and organics? The corals should be fine?

  • Hi vinny So I returned a week ago and have resumed dosing. Some corals look great and others look drab, less vibrant. Polyp extension is much less also. I was talking to my local store and he recommended Ultra Organic, stating it will transform my coral colours and growth rates. I checked the label and the product is advised to be used with MinS. I understand it to be certain organics that MinS does not contain and therefore fills in the gaps. Can this product be used zeolite method and or in my…

    Hi guys I was wondering if it is possible to overdose Reef Bacto Balls, and if yes what would be the visual indicators to show this. I understand the dosage to be 2-3 balls per 100ml of water. How does a user determine how much to dose and reduce/increase the amount?

  • Zitat von Nadia: „Hello, I also have question about RV and CB. Waht is best time for dosing CB and RF if I use FM Zeolite system, before - in moment of shaking - or after shaking zeolite? Thanks Nadezhda “ I dont think it matter Nadia, Shaking the zeolites simply removes mulm (baterial mass) from the stones, into the reef to be consumed or skimmed off. I do not see how it would be affected by CB or RV.

  • hi vinny I have been doing the waterchanges as suggested. I have dropped the CB by approx 50%, to now 2spoons. 1. .I have not dosed any RV, as I would hold off until I have done enough waterchanges to have diluted all the barium and sulphur deposits in the tank. I am concerned RV may make these available to the corals and negatively affect them. Is this a possibility or is it ok to dose? 2. I go on vacation next week for 2 weeks, in my absence is it ok to stop dosing CB and RV? My CE, MinS dosin…

  • ok I am starting to understand, So the RV dosage is very much dependant on locked up nutrients, but how do you gauge what the correct dosage should be? claude when you say 'not much nutrients' do you have an idea of what that is and how to adjust dosing? For Example, If we have 1000L aquarium. How does the RV dosing vary by level of nutrients (no3): NO3 of more than 10ppm, 2 RV capsule NO3 of 5-10ppm, 1.5 RV capsule No3 of 2-5ppm, 1 RV capsule NO3 of less than 2ppm, 0.5 RV capsule Is it possible…

  • hi vinny this is interesting to read. In my experience however I have had sudden losses to corals due to the addition of Reef Vitality, BUT my nitrates have not been 'too low'. In fact I have had coral loses whilst my no3 has been ~5ppm. So this explanation of low ntrate does not make sense. Does RV temporarily drop no3 to ~0ppm shortly after dosing, where it stays at this level for a short time and then returns back to its original level? else the explanation makes sense but in practice does no…

  • Thanks vinny, I have started using FM salt now, I have done 2x10% water changes over the last 5 days. 1.What steps/dosing to you suggest I take going forward? 2. Should I resume dosing CB and RV? 3. What dosing do you suggest ? Currently 1 RV x2 weekly 3.5 CB x2 weekly 0.05ml MinS Daily 7ml CE x2 weekly 18 Bacto Balls changed every 2 weeks

  • Any help with the above please?
