Today on BRStv, we have another update on the BRS160. We'll cover our war against nudibranchs, and a surprising discovery we made that may just change the way you look at coral growth.

When we saw the first signs of the montipora eating nudibranch’s it certainly seemed like bad news, but in a way it was an awesome opportunity to share with the BRS community that you are not a bad reefer if you end up with a pest in your tank. Despite everyone's best efforts it can happen to anyone and this is an opportunity to show what we did when we encountered them as well as what our result were.

Well I am happy to say that by simply adding the single six line wrasse and dosing the combination of KZ flatworm stop and coral booster our nudi issue is not only what I would call manageable, but if you didn't know any better it's non-existent. There is literally no sign of them at this point.

Outside of that we installed a CO2 Scrubber on the tank. Because there are 50 people in the warehouse breathing CO2 in to the air which is the primary cause of low pH in most peoples tanks, the pH of the BRS160 was lower than I might like. Generally it was hovering between 7.8 and 8.0 depending on the time of day and on occasion even dipping down to 7.7

After adding the scrubber, we were able to maintain our pH at a higher level consistently, and this has resulted in a very surprising outcome...watch now to find out!
