Thanks everybody. Its fine i will wait. No more additions for the time being. But just dont be rude to me. I am a newbie in this profession.

Okay now for the phosphate, its coming back again slowly on the rocks. I think it will go, it all happend due to top filter running with ceramic rings and zeolite stones though Pasfur warned me but i didnt listen to him at that time. Now i am paying for that. Anyways hope it goes off soon.

Can i use phosphate remover.

Nobody is replying on QT. Why ? I think nobody knows how to keep a QT


Phophate Remover(Paste) installed via top filter and filter floss. Filter floss will be washed everyday as per Pasfur. Last night i read the instruction of Phosphate Remover. It said it works for brown algae, red algae and slime algae as well as Phosphates. Though when i washed the granules they became like a paste so as per instruction i put it inside a cloth bag and inserted in the top filter. The pack says replacement required after 30days.

Well after installing Phosphate Remover the Protein Skimmer is making lots of foam, though still white but a lot. The cup is getting filled every 4 hours. Why ?

I will be adding some more 5kg live rocks tmrw as per prescribed earlier by you guys. Thanks. 5kg = 11.2 lbs

Earlier Total Rocks = 35.6 Now added 11.2 lbs that makes it 47 lbs. (approx) in a 29 gallon tank.

They say 1.5 live rocks per gallon that makes it 45lbs. Mine is 47lbs.

Is this okay or i need to add more & how do i seed it with live rocks.

After several days of consideration, I believe it is in the best interest of everyone if we lock this thread. The conversation has remained polite, but constructive discussion ended a long time ago and the risk of escalation is high. For this reason, I am locking this thread.

Zaitmi - you are welcome to continuing posting questions. Please start a new thread in the proper section of the forum for any further questions concerning specific issues. If you would like a continuous thread showing pictures and the progress of your tank, you can do that with a Build Thread in the "Saltwater Pictures and Videos" area.
