    Lol, people keep saying that but I havent really posted any pics.:lol: but cheers anyway.


    Tank is ok, still in a transition stage with the lights, recently lost a few bits..

    Discovered that my ro had a slightly fishy smell which I hadn't seen before, so hopefully the couple of losses was toss water.

    I have also sent and ICP test off which is currently en route to Germany

    ICP test come back ok, apart from a couple of bits

    Cal and mag slightly elevated, which is where is usually run them

    Iodine quite high , and a couple of smaller elements such as barium and manganese slightly low.


    Contemplating running rowa or pearls to counteract my phos of 2.46 though :dft001:

    If you drop phos on its own you prob get a cyano outbreak.

    What about vodka dosing or nopox etc
