Not only did I not leave the hobby, I upgraded to a 90 gal 450 red sea reefer. Now I am the worst reef keeper on a bigger tank! I still have the biocube running, but only have some jawbreakers in there til i add a pair of clowns. For the bigger tank, phos at .20 enough to grow multiple types of algea!

Haha well I appreciate your stubbornness to keep going with it. We all know how frustrating this hobby can be.

Nice upgrade! Good sized tank.

Jumping in late here... Will continue reading this, but a quick note. LRS doesn't really need to be rinsed. it washes away some of the additives. LRS is the cleanest frozen food on the market and the amount he is feeding seems about right. Perhaps his skimmer isn't working right? (I will comment further when I have gotten father along in the discussion)

I think I do need a phosban reactor. All other levels in normal range. Nitrates fortunately zero. I did add a cute little refugium in the sump using a plastic sterilite container and drilling holes. Works great.. for all I have read so far should not be leaking phospates...
