    Apr/May 2016 Detect High PO4 issue. (Above 0.15)
    Try changing GFO ,rowa and phos minus but issue keep coming back.

    1st Dec 2016 start No water change(Age is the main deciding factor)
    Started reading a lot of forum on No water change. Triton,DSR,Farmer TY, Sanababit,etc

    18th Dec 2016 Remove all GFO ,Biopellet and AIO.(Not resolving my High PO4 issue)
    Start using ATS, change to wet skimming, dose iron supplement and Carbon .

    1st Feb 2017 Remove ATS . NO3 always zero. ATS cannot sustain
    Left with Skimmer, Iron supplement and Carbon dosing

    10th Apr 2017
    1. Start using DSR iron supplement. Before that was using Seachem, Continuum and Brightwell iron supplement.

    2. Vodka use up. Start using vinegar/sugar mix as carbon dosing
    Start with 2.5 ml dosing but need to reduce to 1.5 ml after 1 week
    Now stop as NO3 is zero most of the time.
    Instead I start dosing KNO3 since 1st Sept 2017

    3. Add Power filter

    Jun/Jul 2017 DIY viewing pot for more tank photography opportunity

    21st Jul 2017 Add 100 macro to my lens collection.

    Aug 2017 Start to look in PH issue between day and nite.

    1. Start source for soda lime

    2. Set up CO2 scrubber with soda lime on 14th Aug 2017

    1st Sept 2017

    1. Stop dosing vinegar because NO3 always zero.

    2. Start dosing KNO3 to boost up NO3

    Now looking into auto dosing of iron supplement and vinegar/sugar mix or KNO3
