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:

      Let the RO water sit for 24hours before testing pH. That will give you the true pH level.

      Allright thanks, ill do 25% Waterchange weekly, i have many poweder food here, that should be working 😃 Thanks. Im already dripping my water, one litre per hour.

      Shrimps aren't very high bioload so you should probably reduce the weekly water change to no more than 25% and the new water will need to be dripped into the tank over many hours. I haven't used salty shrimp but I have heard it usually comes out about 6.8 so I don't think that is a problem. It is more likely to be you are changing too much water which has that PH difference of 1 may be too much for the babies to cope with. Lava rock won't alter the PH/KH so thats fine. Just do 20-25% weekly water changes, adding the ew water with a driper and I think you will be fine. I would probably get some baby shrimp food as well and that will be a powder,, so use a pin, dip the tip 2-3mm in to the tank quickly to wet, then in the powder and then swirl that in the tank so it spreads around. It is a fairly small tank so there may not be quite enough natural biofilm (caution not to over feed though). Simon

      Sorry, yes you are right.  I have tropica powder Soil with Taiwan Bees. They are all healthy, no one is dying, buy my shrimp babys die off after maybe 2-3 weeks 😕 The only rock i have inside my tank is lava rock. im asking, why the PH is rising, because im putting RO water with only GH salt inside the RO water. Still the PH is rising to 6,8 PH after maybe 24-48 hours. Im little bit concerned, because my RO Water has maybe 5,8 PH? and the difference is too high to raise that fast. Maaybe thats killing my baby shirmps? The high difference. But i dont want to put any KH anymore in my Waterchange water. Thank you so much for your help 😃

      I assume you are using a (PH buffering) soil substrate and keeping caridina shrimp? A PH 6.8 and KH 1 is fine for usual caridina shrimp! Are the shrimp dying? Usuallly rock can cause PH/KH to increase but I assume you don't have any of that as you don't list that as in the tank? If you are using soil, it may have absorbed some of the KH and is slowly releasing it but that should reduce over time and if you only have KH1 that isn't a problem - I don't think you can actually measure KH 0 anyway with the usual test kits as each drop is +1 KH? It is possible to get smaller reading than 1 by altering the volume of water you test, double the water (10ml) each drop of tester fluid is then half a KH, double that again (20ml) and each drop will be quarter of a KH, but it isn't really necessary and wastes a lot of tester fluid  you could try it once though if you want a more accurate idea of exactly where the KH is, not to the nearest whole number. I may not have grasped what your actually asking and I don't see any problem from the post but do feel free to ask again if I haven't understood? Welcome to the forum by the way and hope you enjoy it! Simon
