Nice growth. I now see the base out that you were telling me about at the meeting. Pretty sustantial colony you have now. I like the Halide look much better! Keep up the great work. Maybe we'll trade some corals later.
As of that last pic from the end of January I had been running a calcium reactor for about 3 weeks. Before that I just dosed calcium daily. Now that I have a reactor, I would never go back, makes it much easier to keep the calcium and alk at a good level
Were you using a two-part additive or kalkwasser? I've been having trouble keeping my calcium level where it needs to be just adding kalk. It's now running in the 275mg/L range which as you know is too low. I'm thinking it's time for a calcium reactor.
I was starting to have problems keeping up w/ my cal also w/ a 2 part and that was when I decided to go ahead and make a reactor. I really don't have much money in it, I am borrowing the pump and the regulator/bottle. I think other then that the plastic cost me about $10 and the plumbing cost about $35-40 w/ all the JG fittings. It works like a champ, and now I have no problems w/ keeping up.
