721-1199 liter Solar Powered Reefer 3XL 900

Yesterday was very hot, the door was closed and I forgot to open a window aswell. 

Resulted to high temperatures in all of my 4 quarantine tanks and low oxygen in water.

Unfortunately in a populated tank with 7 anthias, a midas belenny and a small yellow tang my efforts to bring down temperature failed and I lost the belenny and the yellow tang 😔

My bad luck/stupidity continues with the yellow tangs.

Oh, sry to hear that :(

 

Yes, it was really warm yesterday. 

And you had almost completed the quarantine time of 30 days? 

 

A air conditioner would be nice to have these warm days.

Yes it was almost done
All quarantine aquariums are in a small room and because of a 2 years old daughter we close the door usually.
My mind was somewhere else yesterday (I lost my cousin aswell :( ) and totally forgot that the room facing south can get hot pretty fast.

So sorry to hear this Farham! Always a stress to beat the heat during the hot summer days (for us who don't have AC). 
 
Thanks Kim. It was very unfortunate

Thanks. Mine sits 20 cm off bottom on plexi stand. I did this on previous tank as well. Water is forced through fleese due to gravity. Fleese will last longer. My roll was new on Sunday. I will let you know how long it lasts.

Hi.
I made a stand last night.
Hopefully the roll will stand longer like this.

Wow what a nice group of fish you've got!
Thanks Kim,
Still some left on my fish list but mainly wrasse... I think I've got too many tangs...but at the same time maybe that's why they get along.

You checked with seneye already right? 
Was PAR more or less from what you measured before?? 
Yes. It was less.
I had to turn my lights from 75% *set by Seneye) to 100% (set by Apogee) to get 300-350 PAR
Apogee MQ-510 is made for LED underwater measurement so I will go with this (raising from 75 to 100% in 30 days) and see if my corals like it or not. They are not doing good now but I suspect other factors are in play than light for my STN problem.

Tested the water after one week vacation 

Alkalinity 8.0 dkh 

Nitrate 7.9 ppm

Phosphorus 4 ppb

 

Nitrate came down from 14 to 8 in 2 weeks.

Phosphorus was 0. Had to dose phosphate for few days...raised it to 7 before my vacation last week and now its 4 ppb (0.012 ppm)

Alkalinity came down from 9.1 to 8 in a week 

 

Tomorrow Trident and DOS will arrive so I will have it hooked up to Apex. 

Also planning to experiment with kalkwasser 🤔

Last night some more toys arrived and I started to make a place for Trident underneath the aquarium in a very tight spot...hopefully will hold 😬

Please elaborate your experiment with kalkwasser :)

I ordered and received Deltec kalkwasser mixer but didn't like the quality so I returned it and ordered one from Reef Octopus...

Much better built and easier to use...it is not connected yet since I had no time this weekend...hopefully I will do it by the end of this week 😀

Well I manage to take an extra line from RO/DI reservoir under the stairs and make a small station for kalkwasser stirrer...

For now dosing 1 liter per day seems to be enough to keep alkalinity at 9 dkh.

Also say hello to my little friend 😁

Nice! What do you use to feed the reactor, apex or a continuous dosing pump?

Thanks.
I had one free head on my Apex DOS...so I went with that.
