Could of additional filtration units:So what made the difference?
Slowly but surely, you’ve seen the pictureYup, 9 days to drop 1400 gallons 10ppm I'd bet in the next 9 days it'll be closer to 20. You may bottom out PO4 too.
How is the ATS looking?
Thanks, good info. I’m trying to balance it between that and ATS/ chaeto. Eventually, I want to stop using GFO and just rely on ATS and vodka/ skimmer. Currently my phosphates are being on the lower end where nitrates seems to be the problem. As soon as I get nitrates down to about 10ppm, I’ll try to take gfo offline and control nitrates/ phosphates with balancing vodka and algae reactor etc..Just some experiance notes, careful with the vodka amounts. I was chasing lowing phosphates and ended up having to dose nitrate to feed the bacteria enough to finish off the phosphate and dosing a LOT of vodka. I had a bryopsis and was trying everything to kill it. I ended up with bacterial blooms that would clog everything up. And no change in algea since it was feeding off what was leaching out of rocks.
Id recommend using the vodka to lower the numbers but try to utilize other stuff to keep them down. Just something to think about.
