Aquarium Update 10-28-14 – 11 Months


11 month update. Fish and corals are fairly happy. The refugium is full of pods. I still need to get the green hair algae under control. Phosphate levels ~ 0, Nitrates ~7 ppm.

Aquarium Update 10-28-14 – 11 Months


Wow has life been busy here lately. A few big deadlines at work due by the end of the year… hopefully after that I can get back into water world. I’m still changing water and doing routine maintenance but the hair algae still persists. Water tests this evening showed phosphates registering at ~0 and nitrates at ~7 ppm. The tank has been up and running for 11 months now and I’m hoping to hit the “less green” phase. 🙂

Here’s an update video of what the refuge and tank looks like:

Reef Octopus 6″ Recirculating Skimmer DDNW 150 6530B – 3 Year Update


This has been a great skimmer over the past 3 years. The only issue I have time-to-time is that after a power outage, one of pumps might have a difficult time starting. I run RO water through the air intakes once a week to keep them clean of debris. This video shows what happens to the skimmer after I change the felt filter pads in my sump. The skimmer overflows for a minute or so but that help clean out the collection cup.
