    Long time no update due to busy with work, sports touring and cryptocurrency trading.

    Since now crypto is ATL, everything on HODL, decided to spend some time to clean up the tank and make rvs more robust.

    If you read rvs thread you should know i am using a reef octopus overflow box to link up to my lps tank, refugium and cryptic drum. So its filtration critical that the overflow box function well. Any siphon break will cause rvs nutrients level to increase tremendously as well as peak pH drop due CR running without refugium pH buffering.

    For past 1 year the reef octopus overflow box has never break siphon but past 6 months i notice somehow air pockets tends to find its way to the highest point of the overflow box and the water siphoning rate will drop drastically. Every 4 days i will need to manually suck out the air to sustain the operation.

    I did some research and found out lots of info on how to prevent air trap. The easiest method is to connect this cheap $25 Tom aqualifter pump to continuously suck the highest point vent and prevent any air trap.

    Just installed it today, lets see how reliable it goes.

    Took this opportunity to clean the glass and took a photo of rvs with my S7 edge.

    Being busy lately so 2 months no water change, but the colour seems to be holding.

    An oz green sps colony stn and a blue dragon frag stn at base. Have frag them and conditioning in frag rack now.

    Other than that, the rest of the corals are doing great and growing well.[​IMG]

    You are not reefing if you are not cultivating corals....you are just keeping a fish tank.
