At Amazing Aquariums we house most of our fish in a 500 gallon system filtered by a Sealife Systems trickle filter for biological filtration, a Top Fathom six foot tall protein skimmer for removing dissolved organic compounds (DOC's), Dolphin Amp Master for the main return pump, a 120watt UV sterilizer and the addition of ozone to reduce water born pathogens. We run the fish holding systems at a temperature of 78 degrees, specific gravity of 1.025 to 1.026, pH of 8.2, alkalinity of 3.5meq/l and try to maintain nitrates below 25ppm by 20% water changes monthly. We run copper sulfate 3.5-4.5ppm in our fish quarantine system.
Corals and invertebrates are housed in every other system in our store. We use very high output (VHO) fluorescent, and Radion XR30 LED pro's and Current Marine Reef Pro 48" LEDs. All systems are modified Berlin method with live rock and live sand for biological filtration, protein skimmers for removal of DOC's, high intensity lighting and the addition of kalkwasser.
Our coral holding grow out systems are kept at temperatures from 78 to 80 degrees, specific gravity of 1.025 to 1.026, pH of 8.2 to 8.6, alkalinity of 2.5 to 3.5meq/l, nitrates of 0ppm, phosphate of 0 to 0.03ppm. We dose kalkwasser (calcium hydroxide) with all make up RO/DI water (freshwater purified by reverse osmosis and deionization) to maintain calcium at 400 to 420ppm along with the use of Two Little Fishies C-Balance dosed separately as needed to raise calcium levels. Trace and iodine are dosed weekly or when needed. We feed our coral holding systems various foods like Two Little Fishies ZoPlan, Kent Phytoplex/Chromaplex, rotifers, and baby brine shrimp, to help them achieve good coloration and fast growth rates. We perform monthly water changes and run these systems with 100% natural seawater.
