Started September 2013 - March 8 2014 (FOWLR)
Image

Cycling Stage = nung una wala pang drill tank ko OHF lang at walang sump pero later on during cycling nag sump na ko at pinatira ko na kay mang ramon ;)
Image

Yehey may fish na :D (although hindi ako na sales talk sa carti at nalaman ko agad yung cycling at nag research ako talaga. nadali ako sa pag lalagay ng fish ng maramihan sa isang batch like 10 fish agad lagay ko) 1st saltwater tank ko kasi to saka sarap mamili eh kaka enjoy mga LS gusto kong bilin lahat nun haha

Image

Image

di rin ako nag QT at halos lahat ng fish ko galing carti that time kasi yun lang alam kong bilihan. yang mga fish ko halos sila na fish ko mula umpisa hanggang ngayon eh.

sump ko dati 15g lang 1st chamber live rock/rubble, skimmer, activated carbon, rowaphos, 2nd DSB, macro algae, 3rd chamber return pump

Image





March 9 2014 till now Reef Tank na ;)

lighting
Image

few shots ng tank ko sa mga nag daang panahon

Image

dami ko daw live rock sa DT at sayang ilaw at flow so nag bawas ako

Image

at nag bawas pa lalo

Image

kasabay ng pag bawas ko ng LR sa DT nag upgrade ako ng sump para dun ko itatambak lahat ng maalis na live rock hahaha

Image

Image

yung feather caulerpa at grape caulerpa ko pala namamatay kaya natira nalang chaeto at halimeda



ITO NA YUNG TANK KO NOW

sige sir try ko yung rubberband tapos ipit ko nalang sa bato. hindi ko kasi alam pano ilagay yung mangrove sir eh sabi daw floating or tusok sa sand nalilito ko. kaya ganun muna sya pansamantala. diba masama galawin yung sand? saka iniisip ko baka mag outgrow yung mangroves eh limited lang kasi yung taas sa sump. kung lumaki man yun pwede bang putulin sa gitna? tutubo ba ulit yun pati yung pinutol?

pwede mo sya palutangin using styro tusok mo lang. then pag trim nya every 3 pair of leaves... wag mo hayaan
mabulok ang leaves sa tubig remove mo agad. then wipe mo occasional ng wet cotton yun leaves para matangal
asin. pag naging puno na mangrove mo you know what to do na. itanim mo sa coastal area. pero matagal payan.

Yung sagot sa water quality and ich issues mo bro ay yung kakulangan mo sa husbandry at sa overstocking.

Ang ich sa isda manifestation yan na may mali sa environment nila. On your case, water quality at maraming isda nga.

It will still be your call kung lahat sila ay iiwan mo sa tank, pero kung itutuloy mo yung balak mo na mag-full reef, mahihirapan ka.

Sayang nga di magkatugma mga sked natin, si blackwidow at lil_pilihp sana dadaan rin. Try na lang natin next week pag medyo maluwag na sa sked. :)

PS

Calcium Hydroxide ang kailangan para sa limewater, hindi Calcium Carbonate. Essentially useless yan dahil insoluble yan at di magagamit o maa-uptake ng corals at iba pa na gumagamit ng calcium.
Cheers,
Marty

actually bro marami rami na kong tinanggal na isda dito eh. kala ko okay na pero if ever naman aalisin ko sunod yung trigger. pero aminado nga ko medyo kulang sa husbandry pero now balak ko mag weekly waterchange na unlike before once a month lang halos tapos 15g lang.

yung ich sir nag karon sila after few days pagkatapos ilagay sa tank pag bagong bili. di kasi ako nag quarantine eh wala kong extrang tank. since nun meron na sila di na nawala. mawawala minsan then minsan babalik minsan mawawala ulit.

yung trigger lang talaga yung medyo sure ako na tatanggalin ko pero kung di parin bumaba baka mapilitan talaga ko mag bawas pa kahit mahirap :oops:

ay uu nga bro calcium hydroxide pala.

nabasa ko lang kasi before na yung apog daw at lime or calcium hydroxide iisa. kaya bumili ako ng apog sa palengke di nga sya nadidisolve nag stay lang sa ilalim. di ba effective to pang pataas ng Ph at calcium para sa coraline algae? if ever sir ano bang alternative dito na mas effective?

yung activated carbon ba at "uling" iisa? ginawa ko kasi kumuha lang ako ng piraso ng uling tapos nilagay ko sa sump okay lang ba yun?

saka pag vinegar dosing ba okay lang yung datu puti gamit ko eh?

Bro click mo yung links sa signature ko regarding reef chemistry, lahat ng kailangan mo andun na. :)

kung calcium oxide o hydroxide yang gamit mo, tama yan. magkaiba ang hydroxide sa carbonate. :) sa tank mo pwede na 1tsp per gallon of purified water for topoff. di yan pwede ng biglaang buhos.

re uling at activated carbon, magkaiba sila in terms of material used, process at pore size. magkakalat lang yung uling sa tank mo ng unwanted compounds. kung pangit pa yung uling mo baka may kerosene o gasolina pa yan o kaya naman baka lumber yan dati na may pesticide. baka may phosphate rin yan.

heinz distilled vinegar magandang gamitin kaysa datu puti. kadalasan ng non-distilled vinegar ay may traces pa rin ng po4.

Ang magandang gawin para mapababa yung NO3 mo ay i-address muna yung cause/s. Might as well magsiphon ka na rin ng detritus pag WC mo.
Cheers,
Marty

Sir so sa ganitong gallon ng purified water 5tbps. na calcium hydroxide lalagay ko? 5g kasi laman nito eh.
Image

sige sir try ko yung heinz saka baka yung binebenta nalang sa pet shop mismo na activated carbon gamitin ko para safe

btw ito yung tingen kong causes ng high nitrates

-walang wavemaker kaya nag sesettle lahat ng detritus
-minsan lang ako mag waterchange saka kunti pa
-di ko ganong nasisiphon kaya daming detritus na naipon sa rocks and sand wala rin akong turkey baster or asepto syringe para mabomba. wala kasing mabilan ng asepto walang stock sa lahat ng mercury na tinanungan ko.
-not enough CUC
-mahina yung produce ng skimmer ko kaya dapat i mod.
-overstocking

kung yan man yung causes if ever may mga naka handa na kong solution.

btw overfeeding ba yung twice a day mag pakain ng pellet at nori?

kung may wavemaker ba kahit wag na bumili ng turkey baster? tatapat ko nalang yung wavemaker?

baka this week bumili ako nitong wavemaker tig isa.

sunsun JVP-101A 6W single 3000 L/hr
sunsun JVP-102A 12W single 5000 L/hr

lagay ko sa mag kabilang dulo. okay na kaya to? since LPS/softies lang naman plano kong alagaan at low-med flow lang need nila. iniisip ko nga di kaya sobra pa to sa flow? isang wavemaker lang kaya? or 2 na mas mababang watts?


btw naalala ko sir seth sabi nyo 2x12w bilin ko iniisip ko kasi baka matangay lahat ng buhangin ko nun eh. yung return pump ko kasi sa sump pabalik sa DT 2000l/hr lang sya pero nililipad yung mga buhangin ko ewan ko kung sa placement lang yun kaya ginawa ko hinati ko sa dalawa yung labas mag kabilang dulo.

pano ba gamitin at maintain to? san ba magandang ilagay to? I'm planning na ilagay sya between baffles sa sump. ito bang buong bag na to mismo ilagay or babawasan pa to? and example every week banlawan ba to then balik ulit or every week mag papalit ng new bag then tapon na yung existing? or forever na sya sa sump. wala talaga kong idea thanks

two cups (500 ml) for your tank. lagay mo lang sa hi flow area ng tank or sump. monthly ka magpalit.
anong brand binili mo? mediocre brands may bring you problems instead of benefits. best for me is rowacarbon...

2pcs per box kasi 1pc lang binili ko. hindi ko kasi alam na need din pala palitan to.
