    I made a video on my YouTube Channel, Reef Nerd, about the RAIN2 and Growing Algae in a reef tank in general

    July 2019 Update

    Everythings been doing great! SPS is growing super well, and I have added even more! Some eew fish as well, a pair of lyretail anthis (blue eye anthias), unfortunately the spotted mandarins I added did not get along with my existing pair, so I give them to my friend Billy who has a large established tank with no other Mandarins. They are doing fine in his tank

    This month I have
    - setup the Kore7th and KH Lab! Too early to give impression or review, but expect to see a video on that soon on my YouTube channel
    - well and truely gone past what I can support with Kalk, I am currently dosing 3.5L of Kalk a day with 45ml of 2 part per day as well... calcium reactor cant come soon enough
    - added some cool new SPS, a toxic green hammer and another clam
    - started the Reef Anabolics Trace range, Coral Essentials Black Label range, and the Reef Anabolics and AquaForest Coral food range!



    Unfortunately the Acans that were infested with boring clams have not done well and arent going to make it. So I will be adding some new acans soon to replace them.

    My parameters have been pretty stable averaging:

    Alkalinity 7.3 dkh - this has been a little unstable lately as I battled to meet consumption... with the new Kore7th I am dosing 45ml of 2 Part on top of the 3.5L of Kalk i do through the reactor.
    Calcium 435 ppm
    Nitrate 4.0 ppm/L - with all the extra coral foods my nitrates have increased a bit, but I am not concerned at this level.
    Phosphate 0.06 ppm
    Magnesium 1335 ppm


    Anyway here are some pictures!

    Great to hear. Lack of alk dosing is a great problem to have. Have not heard of the boring clam problem in years though.
