  1. It is up to you then....if you are willing to drive out, you can have both containers. They are from Green Leaf also...just half the size. I try to keep mine about 5 with the dosing and feedings. Sounds like a reason to add more fish !!
  2. Too bad you weren't a little closer....I have two 500ml ones you could have that I no longer use. It would cost you more in gas driving out than they are worth lol.
  3. I have not mixed a new batch in a LONG time, but according to my notes, I have written down that I used 160 grams of KNO3 mixed with 1000ml of RO/DI water. I use Green Leaf dosing bottles and just store the mixture. http://greenleafaquariums.com/aquarium-fertilizers-supplements/dispenser-32oz.html Again, according to my notes, I have written down that a 10ml dose would increase my nitrates from 2.5 to 5 in a 130 gallon system but I have not tested those numbers in a long time. If you decide to go this route, I would just start dosing slowly and keep testing daily until you figure out what works for your system. Green Leaf Aquariums actually has dosing numbers for various types of systems on their site which I used as a starting point, but those numbers are for planted freshwater tanks. Yes, I also tested Potassium using Salifert test kits, making sure that it always stayed in the allowable ranges.
  4. I have dosed KNO3 off and on for almost a year with no issues. I buy it from GreenLeafAquariums.....it is meant for planted tanks but works great in our reef tanks. http://greenleafaquariums.com/aquarium-fertilizers-supplements/potassium-nitrate.html
  5. I realize this is an old thread, but you can have the skimmer pull air through any reactor filled with soda lime and it will raise and steady your PH (assuming your low PH is CO2 related). My tank and sump is in the basement with not much fresh air. Since running the reactor, my PH has went from 7.8-7.9 to 8.2 consistently.
  6. I like the ecosmartlive interface in regards to light control much better than the Apex.....either would work obviously....just a personal preference.

  8. Hello all. I currently have a 105g SPS dominated semi-predator reef tank which has been running for about 1.5 years. Also have a 40g freshwater tetra tank as well as some reptile enclosures :-)
