Thanks Jon yea tell me about it that was only the first half of the fittings to plum the sump many more were need to the rest of the system.

Dude, that's your house?? shiiiiiit, some operation you got there, bravo.

Yes it's is. I took over the larger part of my basement that my sister in law was living in for last 10 years. The old system was on the other half that the kids have no reclaimed as there own.

Thank you
For humidity control I have 1.5 ton AC unit I run for the warmer months and a large dehumidifier I run for the winter months. There currently is a small exhaust fan that will be replaced with a commercial unit if humidity or heat becomes and issue.

It's pink with purple body and red polyps

Thank you Dan
When I got it was yellow and pink but 90% of the time the fresh wild ones never hold those colors it's green with purple tips. which is a nice change from the more common shortcake coloration you see in most Aussie pieces.

Aside from a calcium reactor, do you use any trace elements that you would recommend?

Very similar looking but all the pics of seen of the bada bing has more pink in it. Also have only seen pics of freshly collected ones none that have been in a system long enough to color up.

No additives just water changes the occasional dose of KNo3 if nitrates get to low but with the amount of fish that I just threw in the system hopefully won't have to

Yea some of the biggest ones I have seen in awhile. Im very lucky to finally find a good supplier of aussies and have been all coming in very healthy.
But I will take a bleached out Aussie over a brown turd maricultred colony any day.

Thank you Bill
I most certainly be posting some progression shots as they color up.
As far as the Kno3 dosing goes I mix up 40g of Kno3 powder with 500ml of RO. And currently dosing about 10ml/day and will adjust according to water tests. My No3 is just barely detectable right now so I am slowly raising the dosage every week until I get to around 2-5 No3.

As far as dosing on your system I would start slow say 2-5ml per day and slowly raise it until you start to see a reading on your test kit. It's like dosing anything else start at half or lower of the recommend dosage and observe the system for positive or negative results.

Personally I haven't had any downsides to dosing Kno3. Only heard of people having problems with cyano, algae blooms or elevated K levels. But couldn't tell you how much they were dosing what other things they may have been dosing many factors that can go into those issues.

Hope you get a nice shipment will be looking forward to seeing some pics.

If have any other questions feel free I'll try to answer the best I can.

The best success for color and growth I have had is with MH and don't plan on changing anytime soon. To effectively light this system with LED the upfront cost would be ridiculous. But if a truck full of Radion G4 crashed in front of my house I would consider switching.

Thanks matt
I run a large portable AC unit and dehumidifier all controller by the apex. When system temp is over 78 the AC is running to keep the room cool, keep the humidity down and keep system temp manageable. If temp is below 78 the dehumidifier is running. Also have a exhaust fan in the room that haven't need to run yet. If humidity does become unmanageable will upgrade the exhaust fan to more of an industrial size one. When I'm home and weather is reasonable also have a large exterior door in the room to allow plenty of fresh air in. My system PH has never been so high.

Beautiful stuff man! I would love to have someone like this live near me... I am surprised you have not got more Bali stuff in, lots of nice colors there too :) also that rainbow tort is probably actually an austera. Mine gets a nice tan body with yellow tips and blue polyps all over when in high light. Does the pink show up in daylight on your piece?

Thank you piper. Have a few Bali colonies kicking a round in the system and bunch of other indos. But with the recent ban been a bit difficult was suppose to have another large shipment come in this week. Fingers crossed they open back up soon.
You maybe be correct as that piece is growing out looking more like an austera. Never been the best at species ID. I’ll get a new pic of it soon.

Here’s pic of Copps RD in the meantime
