Saltwater mixing station all up and running. Sump plumbing fixed. Torch is looking good. Salt water station pump turned off. Will investigate soon.

Reconfigured the sump turning it around. Definitely better that way but I need to change the plumbing.

Things seem ok in my little box of ocean. Nusiance algaes are starting to subside but still way to much for my liking. Gonna hit the tank with a 20% water change and monitor for an changes.

Well the rescape is done and the tank scape looks great. More live rock should really help with the bio filtration. I have added a small colony of Zoas and a torch coral frag.
It has created a diatom bloom . I have started to add phosphate ex and nitrate ex. Gonna get the numbers down and see what the tank looks like. I have added 6 scarlet hermits.

Gonna spend some money on the tank. I should probably save and do RODI.
But will probably buy coral

Thinking about a rescape.

Didn’t get round to doing the water change today so will have to find time in the week.
I desperately need to start testing for nitrates. I plan to use hydrogen peroxide to kill the algae I have.
I am gonna give away my trigger. And I’m considering getting rid of the filefish.
I have been looking into my water change system and an apex controller . I will be mastering my tank as a SPS Dominant reef . Once I’m more competent I will start the bigger tank.

Mixed salt water overnight. Pumped from water bin. Much easier than buckets.
Going to try removing biopsis algae by increasing mg .
I am still trying to lower phosphate. I am still getting a absolute 0 reading but that is just showing I have 0 free po4.
I have a new TDS meter and need to calibrate. But shop water is not zero TDS.

Collecting water containers for my water station today.
Started to bring phosphate down. Salifert test is reading 0 but that can’t be right. Going to continue to bring it down till I get a reading.

Corals are struggling. Probably gonna lose everything . Sad
