Vodka update / Top Down Photography

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

After dosing vodka to my system for 10 weeks, I can definitely say it is helping reduce Nitrate and Phosphate in my system. One week ago, I tested PO4 and the result was zero, which I expected because I'd used Blue Life's Phosphate Control to get them down overnight. In the meantime, I'd fed my tank heavily and expected phosphates to rise. Today's test revealed it was still at zero. Yes! Nitrates are down to about 15ppm. I'm going to continue dosing until that number gets somewhere closer to 5ppm.

I took a series of pictures with a Top Down Photo Box last night. About the box: www.melevsreef.com/topdown.html
