Install a wet dry bioballs trickle filter... guaranteed to generate nitrates

Happy New Year everyone!

Here is a quick status of the tank as of Jan 2018.

Lost lots of Ochtodes too due to failed experiment in 're-planting' them. Will continue the experiment again when they're in bigger mass. Lost all the greens too due to hungry fishes, these are planted only today and not expecting them to last. Fortunately, the backup greens grow fast in the refugium.

cksss, your tank thread is both informative and inspiring.

I will be setting up something similar hopefully within the year. I quit the hobby a few years ago but am planning to be back soon with a macroalgae tank instead of the more common reef tank (corals). Trading and keeping corals are actually illegal in my country. I've kept corals in reef tanks in the past but have decided to be more "law-abiding" this time.

Your posts, and those of others here, are a great source of information.

agreed. the tank seems to change regularly and each iteration is visually appealing.

I'm glad the information have been useful, and hope that you'll enjoy it as much as we do

Its not only more environmental friendly, it is also cheaper to run and more fuss-free!
