The oils in Selcon will afffect the surface tension of the water. That affects skimmer performance, at least temporarily. The bubbles end up bursting before they can reach a density high enough to...

FWIW I went from B-Ionic to the DIY two part- NO difference at all IME. Unless your making the DIY 2part with sh**ty water, their really shouldn't be much if any difference.

FWIW That does nothing for osmotic regulation. The animals tissues have to balance their salt content according to the salinity of the water they are in.

FWIW This should be in the general reef discussion forum.
2x24w on a 29g will not do much for SPS corals. As said softies and lps may be. Still on the low side in my opinion.

Reeflux 12k's look great, but w/ 24" depth I'd go w/ a 10k lamp for the extra PAR. FWIW the reeflux 10k's are a fair amount brighter than the 12k's and still look decent.

Reeflux/burn in

Anyone have experience w/ Reeflux 12k SE's? I was wondering if they get whiter or more blue after they burn in?
I just switched from reeflux 10k's, and I'm a little disappointed w/ the 12k's. I was...

I thought it was a "smaller" tank b/c of the fish selection. Very nicely done!
BTW where do you get your frags? Locally or online? You have some very nice looking pieces.

Besides a a direct neighbor, it could be catching the scent of a coral down stream and preparing for war. Have you changed the flow or moved any corals recently?
