Post it to YouTube then link it here.Been a lot going on with the tank. I got a some frags the day after I posted in this thread last. I had them in a frag rack until I figured out where I wanted them. Finally came up with a spot for everything and epoxied them all in. The next day my neighbor gave me 3 more so I found a spot for them and got them epoxied for a total of 13 new fags. My skimmer was going nuts from all the epoxy so after a couple of days, I did a big water change and put a bunch of carbon in the tank. The skimmer has finally started to settle back down.
Right before I did the water change, a had an alkalinity swing and lost one of the frags. I started looking at Alkalinity monitors/controllers since the Trident is never available. I have seen the GHL KH Guardian in it has been and seems promising but everywhere I checked says it has been discontinued. Then I found the KH Director that GHL offeres and decided to go that route. After looking at all of the GHL P4 features, I decided to convert from Apex to GHL. Doing that is going to be a slow process because Im not going to remove the Apex until I get the P4 completely taken over everything I have the Apex doing now.
I added that large C02 scrubber a few weeks back and I saw a little bit of a bump in my PH, but nothing substantial. While the skimmer was going crazy, I decided to take the scrubber off and see if anything changed and saw nothing. I was about to write off that idea; I tool the housing apart and had gotten water in it. Long story short, it was blocked. I put some new media in it and within a couple hours I took it back off. My PH went from 8.1 to 8.35 and was still climbing. This worked a little too well. If I continue to use it, I will need to get an electric valve to be able to control the air air source feeding the skimmer.
As of today, all the corals are doing well. I got a descent video of the tank yesterday, need to figure out how to upload it.
