    Vinny, I have stabilised the alkalinity with a doser from 7.3 to 7.7. But my LPS are still continuing to lose their tissue. My acans are totally dying and only 1 manage to survive.

    Vinny, Can help explain this statement you mentioned above. “The lower the nutrients, the less MinS is needed” Thought it should be the other way round, higher the nutrient, the less minS is needed What would you recommend on the starting dosage and frequency? Thanks

    Hi Vinny, Finally I feel diatom issue is under control. From 100% sand covered with diatom , now it’s about 10%. NO3 at 10ppm. PO4 at 0.034ppm . Both tested last night. Waiting for my BRB to arrive to increase number of balls. My aim is to reduce it to 5ppm. Added 0.5kg of siporax, cleaned my skimmer and controlling water level. Skim mates are more dark and foul smelling indicating better nutrient export. Lesson learnt, clean your skimmer regularly Cleaned & repositioned power heads for better f…

    Zitat von Vinny@Fauna Marin: „Zitat von Kilo: „When you say Dino has string-like appearance, does that mean they float upwards in a string like manner with bubbles on TOP? Dino can trap air bubbles so yes. I will assume its diatom first. I will perform a water change and black out the tank for 24 hrs. I will try to get a fighting or tiger conch. At the same time I believe my rockscape is also leaching silicate. Thought of using SERA marin silicate clear. If silicates are the cause, then this wou…

    Zitat von gettingthere: „4 are too many I guess but perhaps you can feed them with some seaweed? Do you have a veterinary somewhere nearby you, they definitely have a microscope to check out and you could use your hand phone to make a pic but perhaps a vet might be able to identify the species. coming back your other post, do they regroup after swirling? “ there is alot of ‘brown stuff’ for them. The fighting conch are just not touching them. On the first try, they regroup but subsequent swirlin…

    Zitat von gettingthere: „Hi Kilo, that looks like cyano ,typically they come in red slimy version, to me. does this patch come back after you siphon it out? I didn't read about your rockwork is made of ceramic but then yes that could leach silicate and diatoms are driven by silicate. there is a invertebrate named "fighting conch - strombus alatus" they are voracious diatom and algae eater. perhaps you can get more information on the net about this animal and then try to get one. I personally wou…

    Vinny, Thanks for your reply. I scooped up the brown algae and smelled it. It smelled like my filter sock so I really don't know. When you say Dino has string-like apprearance, does that mean they float upwards in a string like manner with bubbles on TOP? I agree there are 1 or 2 patches of red cyano. Took it , wiped it on a towel, and its Maroon Color. Someone in another forum mentioned , take the algae , put it in a cup and stir it. If it clump back, it's Dino. See attached I will assume its d…
