Let's start the Zeo 14 day cycle....

All going well - day 9 All fish and Coral put in tank.

Just going through photobucket then and put a smile on my face.

Wow how far they have come.... Those same fish and coral are still alive and thriving.

Thanks guys!!! In a couple of months this reef is coming up to three years old :)

its great to look back and share it with you.... Not many set ups last this long as most get upgraded to bigger and smaller set ups. Over the years I have seen many come and go.

This one was planned to be my dream reef and as such has fulfilled every aspect of my dreams :)

Next reef I do will be six or seven foot but I think I'll leave that to a time in life where I am really settled down.

Did not take too long before the round rock on the left got populated by zoas. Due to its shape I thought it would be the most challenging rock to grow.

these days the fire and ice zoas on the right of the rock have advanced towards the left into that dominant zoa territory.

Awesome pics ..... after the success of this tank, surely the itch to get a 3m x 1m x 1m tank must be overwhelming :poke:. Personally I'd start the planning process. :rofl:

Hahaha, I have a 3x2x2 sitting at home waiting for one panel to be replaced but I haven't done it yet as I know that the second I do the marine reef will be setup again & I have many many other things of more importance that need to be sorted before I can start my reef up again! :slaphead:

Awesome pics by the way due! :victorious:

      It sounds about right for GH6 (6 drops is roughly 120 TDS). Those GH test kits are not the most accurate. And RO water reading of 3 is not unreasonable. I don't know why you would have been reading 240TDS last week and now it's a 100 points lower. I would suggest, not changing water parameter with a water change for a week, then see where it is at. Change if it gets close to 200 (say around 180-190). Let's give the tank some stability by not changing anything for a while.

      I checked my TDS meter and it reads 3 on RO water and today my TDS in my tank is 133. I did a test with API and it took 6 drops so that's around 100 TDS.  I had 2 adolescents die overnight.  Should I only change water when it's over 200 TDS or should i continue with the 10% every week?  Thanks
    • supermansteve32
      I'll check it when I get off work tonight. I'll check my reader against pure RO water & tap, and do a GH test.  I'll also clean my TDS meter.  Thanks for your help everyone.

      If u have a GH test kit, then u can do a cross check, where each GH value in RO water made with SS equals about 20 ppm, e.g. GH 6 water will give you about 120 ppm.

      Are you sure the new reading is correct as that sounds unlikely, and I would have thought you would have had shrimps dying  with that sort of decrease. Do you have a second way of checking the TDS, or can you take a sample to a fish shop for them to test? I can't think of any reason that would happen or even heard of that before? Even if you had put pure RO water in last water change it wouldn't have dropped that far! If it is currently the TDS113 it will make adjusting easy as you just mix the water to the desired end TDS figure (140ish) and it will slowly go up to that. Simon
