40 Gallon Update

Everything is going great in my 40 gallon breeder. I just added a Jebao dosing pump to keep up with the alkalinity and calcium demands of the corals. Still no protein skimmer, just a 30 gallon sump full of live rock and chaeto lit by two PAR 38 flood lights!

I am starting to see green hair algae grow on the live rock so I started dosing AZ NO3 again as that killed off the algae growth with my previous algae issue. I also added more Chaetoporpha algae into the sump. Nitrates test at 0.2 mg/L (Salifert) and phosphates are 0.02 ppm (Hanna Checker).

A few SPS from today.


TCK Dragonfire


Oregon Tort


Tyree Red Dragon


ORA Purple Plasma


Majority of the corals have paled out due to the nitrates reading at 0.2 mg/L (Salifert) and phosphates at 0.02 ppm (Hanna Checker). As a result, I started dosing KZ Amino Acid's and Sodium Nitrate to help dirty up the tank. I would normally clean the glass of green slime algae every other day and with vodka dosing I clean the glass once a week.
