Noticed skimmer is not working well-very little water come out to filter sock, cleaned and re-assembled, problem solved.
Today lunch time, I went to this new fish shop- Green Emerald aquarium, surprisingly close to me, and even surprisingly they have saltwater fishes...
I bought 1 yellow wrasse and one bi-color do
Today I bought Aquaforest NitraPhos Minus product from ReefingReality, they claim this one can help to low Nitrate and Phosphate, let me give a try.
What can I do to bring down the sky high Nitrate (35ppm) and Phosphate (0.75ppm) ?
Large and 4-5 times water change?
Add in Algae scrubber?
Recently no much work done on this Reefer170 tank, I spent my most time on Reefer350 first, once I settle the reefer350 nitrate/phosphate high level issue, I'll focus on this tank.
Today I use newly mixed salt water to test Nitrate and Phosphate, all get 0 ppm. That concludes Test kit is working fine, my tank water is way out of balance. Must do something now.
