I've been using Phosphate Rx for a decade, and it's my preferred product to keep PO4 levels under control. No GFO for me. I've mentioned it many times, but decided "I guess I need to do a video about this product after all." I do realize I could have explained the process in about sixty seconds because it's that simple, but I wanted this to be a fun video. Hope you liked the flashback.

Once the front viewing panel was scraped clean of film algae, the corals looked a lot better. While my arm was wet, I tried out some Aiptasia Rx today to see how well it would work. Too bad the peppermint shrimp in the tank don't do what I hired them to do. Maybe they'll get motivated?Water parameters are doing quite well these days in this tank. I seem to have the dosers dialed into a good spot.

I've been uploading videos to Youtube pretty regularly lately. Did you happen to catch the Youtube Live show last week? Here's the latest one, so if you've missed a few you need to get caught up. I describe how I set up the 60g frag system I built myself, including all the acrylic work.

While most would get excited to go out on a Friday night, I instead stayed in and tinkered with my reefs. Reefkeeping needs attentiveness, and tonight was one of those nights where I needed to address specific needs, or lose corals.

A few weeks ago, I saw something really neat and contacted that person for more information. If possible I hope to sell these from my shop, but for now let me showcase what he sent me as a gift. It's impressive!

Testing is something I always recommend to anyone, especially if their tank is seemingly off. But what about testing when everything is right? When talking to Joe Yaiullo of the Atlantis Aquarium (formerly the Long Island Aquarium), he mentioned how he tests repeatedly to make sure the results he gets are accurate. Specifically, if salinity is dead on, he tests again and again to make sure that it's actually correct and not a false sense of security. As he pointed out, when we see the numbers we like, we don't retest.

On Sunday, a friend of mine offered to help me from his home in Missouri to get my Aqua Controller 3 working with the U-verse Gateway (router), and get the Aquanotes App on my iPhone communicating with it once again. Knowing it would take some time, we tackled it Sunday afternoon after I had my first cup of coffee.

If you are thinking about buying a PAR meter, check out the Group Buy being organized on Reefcast:
Save 40% per meter!
This is a nationwide group buy, and the money will be paid directly to the manufacturer, not to the organizers (Reefcast crew). I think it is important that more people own this meter to measure the amount of light pouring down into their tanks:

All the PAR testing has been concluded, and this page has been finished.
PAR measurements - Spider vs LuminBrite reflectors
I'm driving down to Austin later today (Friday), to speak to the club there on Saturday, and will be back Saturday night. Hopefully my tank will be fine whilst I'm gone.
