    I have just changed out my Phosphate media from my D&D Reactor and have to consider IMO that this the most pain in the [email protected] activity I have to do.



    I'm interested to hear what others think so What's your biggest pain in the [email protected] activity with reef keeping?

    Emptying the skimmer is grim!

    Of late syphoning flatworms daily had just about killed my interest in this hobby
