Ca · Vibrant
Red Sea Foundation Dosing Data:

Mg Dosing Perimeters (based on 100l):
2g = 1.34 ppm
max dosing per day = 10 ppm
so, 2g x 7 = 9.38 ppm

Ca Dosing Perimeters (based on 100l):
2g = 3.6 ppm
max dosing per day = 20 ppm
so, 2g x 5 = 18 ppm

kH Dosing Perimeters (based on 100l):
2g = .33 dkH
max dosing per day = 1.4 dkH
so, 2g x 4 = 1.32 dkH

Started the Red Sea RCP foundational elements program today. Ca Mg and kH are very low. I have to use the daily max and bring the system balance slowly. This is going to take some time.
Sand-Sifting Goby was found dead on the bottom. Recovered him before it was cleaned-up.
Added a Orange Diamond Sand-sifting Goby.
I moved the wave makers to the back of the tank in an attempt to address some dead spot of algae growth on the sand. I may have to get another Goby.
I caught and turned in my large female clownfish. This is because the LFS and I felt that it had an aggressive eating habit that was leading to starving the other fish.
Add a DIY screen top from Bulk Reef Supply so no one jumps out again.
