    Thanks bud.. you should get one

    Yes UAS was a failure for me.. I tried running one as sole filtration and my p went up significantly, then I tried the HOG and three weeks later still no growth.. so I tossed it.

    My filtration for now Is just the live rock.. I might do a few water changes depending where my n and p are in a day or two. I also have a reactor, gac and gfo handy if I need it.

    Did you bend the UAS screen back away from the glass, and drill water holes on the other side of the inside cover? Turns out this makes the difference in growth when nutrients are not high (provides more flow inside the cover, and keeps the screen 1" away from the LEDs)

    Yup.. i got me a 1/4" drill bit and openned up holes on the botom and sides.. I used a tiny ziptie to get it to lay flat and I put if for a week In my display to see if it gets more nutrients delivered... It barely had a yellow hint on the screen.

    Well, took watever was still alive to my buddys house yesterday.. tank has live rock.. or should i say half dead rock only.

    Got power this morning and hooked everything back up.

    Obviously im gonna have a spike. Should I feed while the tank recoups to help the scrubber or are the nutrients from the spike good enough?
