    One month never check no3 as awaiting new test kit to arrive. Today check no3 is 2.5 while po4 remain zero. Quite happy with the result after adding ATS.

    Notice my two weeks algae growth is slower than the week I away as currently run skimmer on my usual level while away week skimmer is running on extra dry mode.
    Thus wet skimmer do help with faster nutrient export.

    However , cleaning ats is quite tiring and more works to do then cleaning skimmer. The main problem is the pipe for water go through will full of algae as well and cleaning that portion is challenging. This is just two weeks mean i need clean the piping every two weeks.

    Been few month and no more livestock except few zoas add into tank, tank consider quite stable as ATS does really help that allow me to feed more and no3 po4 under control.

    Recently doing some par measurement and notice my ai prime is not sufficient. The par value i get from side and bottom of tank is pretty low . Mostly due to my rockscape as nano tank ppl concentrate on centre but my rockscape is across the tank. Thus decided to give a try one china made LED as there are quite good review on it and the price reasonable.

    As can see the light quite big for my tank and it can cover most of the area. Finally i decided to go for second light placement to try can reduce my rbta tree shape issue or not.

    Nice light set. How much is it? Is it programmable with sunrise and sunset features? And what is the par measurement for it? Comparable to AI?
