    I tried everything mate. New lights new flow new whatever. Poly filter never detected it.

    I got the chance of a new tank and completely started afresh. It was a frustrating 6 months lol

    Heres my new tank now.

    I'm in the same boat now mate- it's so frustrating knowing that you're doing everything right but stuff keeps dying! Hopefully I'll get it sorted soon.

    Your tank looks great at the moment!

    Feel for you dude.

    The ironic part is...

    I have not tested this tank since early December nor done any water changes etc and stuff is thriving.

    So with no care at all its fine. If I did it by the book on the old tank. It went to pot.

    Good morning Ged,

    How are things?

    I'm thinking of using my doser to setup a coral feeding regime since both mg no3 and pho4 are of the same levels as ULNS but I'm worried that my skimmer will render the exercise useless.

    How do you find yours?

    P.s I went to PM you this but your inbox is full.

    Hi mate

    My doser doses nopox and aquavitro fuel and thats it mate.

    Seems to be working just fine.

    My skimmer is auto switched off by the apex at 9:15pm for an hour and a half though. The nopox and fuel is dosed shortly after 9:15pm

    Hmm. I don't think I can use the nopox since I have trace no3. But was going to use the fuel.

    Fuel is a great product mate.

    The growth on my corals and colour is brilliant.

    Yeah. I need to clean the current one but a few of the screw heads have snapped off. No idea how.
