    Bobba's UAS HOG.5

    Received and installed on Saturday and so far seems to be working ok. Removed filter floss and GFO from canister filter but left it running with a bit of carbon and for the added flow. I bought a wire brush from Home Depot to scrape the rock hoping it would work better than a toothbrush. Big mistake!!! All the bristles from the cheap ass Chinese brush starting falling out. Spent a half hour just picking them out of the rock. I seeded the screen with some of the algae by just kind of smearing it onto it. Anyone else using the HOG.5?

    Not perfect but hopefully you can get an idea of my setup and algae issue. Kind of dieing off in the one shot because of massive amounts of GFO and water changes. Comes right back to life when I feed though.

    I have 2 very small clowns and a cleaner shrimp that get fed directly. Also have a small clam, 7 LPS, a Sun Coral and a few snails that get whatever is left. I feed by alternating Cyclopeze, Rods Reef Food and Spectrum small fish pellets. Very sparingly in my opinion!

    Put everything you feed (in one day) in a cup and let it dry out. Then measure how many teaspoons it is.

    I will try to measure my average feeding amount by adding it to an empty cube in a mysis pack I have. My guess would be 1/4 to 1/2 cube max. If the cleaner shrimp wasn't such a pig it would be far less! Woops, I will try the teaspon measurment also.

    So I measured how much food I feed per day and they all seem to be about 1/8 to 1/3 of a teaspoon. About the same using an empty frozen cube to measure. I know that the pellets do not all get eaten as they sink to the sand relatively quickly.

    Sounds like always less than 1/2 cube.
