Curing Live Rock For Saltwater Aquariums
 
04:43
http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/bulk-dry-live-rock.html In today's episode we are going to do a short demo on how to properly cure your live rock for reef tanks. Uncured live rock whether it be dry or wet typically has some organic material on the surface of the rock that we would like to remove before adding the rock to the tank. This organic material would add nutrient s like phosphate and nitrate to the system if we allowed it to break down in the aquarium. A proper cure process will help you avoid many of the more common pit falls new reef tanks and their owners commonly experience. *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.

Week 40: The BRS160 in review: Successes, challenges, and improvements | 52 Weeks of Reefing
 
11:39
It's Week 40 of 52 Weeks of reefing, and there are only a dozen episodes left! This week we are taking a break making any changes to the #BRS160 to share with you a review of some of the successes, failures, and future improvements/changes to the #BRS160. The tank is up and full of corals that really look healthy and have begun to settle in. Some of the corals we added just a few weeks ago have already started to encrust the rock work beyond the plug they were mounted on. Every time I test alkalinity the corals are consuming more indicating everything is settled in and starting the grow out process nicely. Every single build has an organic nature to it and you adapt as you go. Particularly this one as we are trying to demonstrate all kinds of different technology and methods. Along the way there have been a few things we nailed and super happy with, a few challenges and like every new tank build, just a few things we would have done differently. So follow along as we go further in depth on what these successes. challenges, and improvements are! *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.

Week 30: Kalkwasser: All-in-one Calcium, Alkalinity & pH supplement | 52 Weeks of Reefing
 
18:50
It's Week 30 of 52 Weeks of Reefing, where each week we explore a new topic with the help of our #BRS160 tank. This week, we are taking an in depth look at kalkwasser, and the science behind it. Kalkwasser is probably my personal favorite calcium and alkalinity solution because it’s the lowest cost, in some ways the easiest to implement, one of the only long term solutions for maintaining an elevated PH near 8.3 and perfectly suitable for all but the heaviest demand tanks. We are going to share the basics and some of the science behind kalkwasser, the benefits and drawbacks , the three primary methods of incorporating kalkwasser into your reef tank and finish with what a potential installation would look like for the BRS160. *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.

Week 27: Refugiums - Utilizing algae for a thriving reef tank | 52 Weeks of Reefing
 
11:34
Welcome to Week 27 of 52 Weeks of Reefing! This week we are exploring how we can use algae to our advantage in the reef tank to help combat nitrates and phosphates...with refugiums! #BRS160 Refugiums are essentially a location in your tank (usually the sump) that allows you to provide a safe haven more micro fauna, as well as grow beneficial macro algae like chaetomorpha or caulerpa. There are a fair share of different types of refugiums out there today, with an equal amount of opinions on how to run them. The traditional refugiums with algae and/or live rock rubble are the most popular and effective in my experience, and some of the easiest to install and maintain. An older technology that is starting to gain more ground again is the algae turf scrubber. This is essentially a very efficient refugium; algae is grown between two light sources on a medium with water flowing past it and then periodically harvested. There are also a few more creative and unique options out there like cryptic refugiums. They offer a few unique benefits. A cryptic refugium is essentially a chamber that doesn't receive light, and allows for intense growth of sponges which filter the water. Do you have a favorite refugium method you prefer to run on your reef?

Adding Anemones to our Lobby Tank | EP 4: Clownfish Harem Tank #clownharemtank
 
03:44
http://brs.li/120clowntank It is anemone time! After starting the tank 3 months ago the fish are growing fast and the dominance hierarchy is starting to form. We added a variety of bubble tip anemones to the tank. We feed the anemones small mysis to help them grow faster. We suggest feeding small easily digested foods because it is more likely the anemone will hold onto it. With larger foods (like silversides) it is pretty common for the anemones to spit the large food out later. Some of the clowns have started hosting the anemones. The fish get fed eight times a day from a Neptune AFS system that is loaded with Sustainable Aquatics Hatchery Diet. It is a lot of food but seems to be doing a great job at minimizing the food aggression from the clownfish. Feeding this much food makes it important to keep on top of nutrient export. To do this Lue does a 50% water change every week. We also installed a refugium, but with the 50% water changes and the big beefy skimmer it hasn’t been needed as much. We just received the new Vertex Omega 180i models. These new skimmers have all the usual features of a Vertex product but, with the 180i, they have moved the pump to the inside of the skimmer. This allowed us to upgrade and fit a more powerful skimmer into the same amount of space.

Installing the 150gpd Water Saving Upgrade Kit | How To Tuesday
 
03:20
http://brs.li/150gpd Installing the 150gpd Water Saving Upgrade will essentially double the amount of product water you produce for the same amount of waste water. This means you only need to run your RO/DI unit for half as long (and thus you will use half as much waste water) as you without the kit. It does this by utilizing a process called waste water staging. Waste water staging is a popular technique in many industrial reverse osmosis applications. It allows you to add a second membrane in series to reprocess the waste water from the first membrane. Because the second membrane is being fed from the waste water of the first membrane, it will be processing higher TDS water then the first. With fairly clean water this won't have any real noticeable impact but if you have an incoming TDS that is 300TDS or higher, this will have a more noticeable impact and you will likely consume DI resin more quickly. For this reason we do not generally recommend using the kit with high TDS tap water. To install the 150gpd Water Saving Upgrade kit: 1. Install the new membrane into the membrane housing and screw on the cap 2. Snap the membrane clips to the new membrane housing. 3. Snap the new membrane housing to the existing membrane housing. 4. Remove the waste water line from the existing membrane housing. 5. Route a tube from the waste water line from the existing membrane to the feed port of the new membrane. 6. Install the waste water line that was on the existing membrane housing onto the waste water port of the new housing. 7. Remove the product water line that connects the existing membrane housing to the auto shut off valve. 8. Cut two new product water lines and connect the product water lines together by running a line from each product water output to the included tube divider (Y fitting). 9. Connect the combined output of the tube divider to the product water input of the auto shut off valve. That is it, you are done!

Ask BRStv: Top Questions About Aquarium Dry Rock
 
03:43
http://brs.li/aquariumdryrock Today's episode of BRStv answers commonly asked questions about dry rock in a reef or saltwater aquarium. Aquarium dry rock is an excellent way to add the necessary live bacteria to your reef tank. There are several types of dry rock to choose from to create a unique aquascape to suit your aesthetics as well as the inhabitants you have in your tank. Pukani is lightest and most porous; Reef Saver is the most environmentally friendly and easiest to aquascape where Fiji is the standard in reef keeping and has a smooth natural rock appearance. When cycled in your reef tank, dry rock will become live rock as the live bacteria begins to populate. Properly cycling your tank can add to the success of the aquarium in the long run. This process can be sped up by introducing booster products like Instant Ocean BIO-Spira as well as live sand. Additionally, dry rock will severely reduce the amount of pests introduced to your saltwater aquarium as opposed to using live rock. Always inspect the reef rock first to help avoid the common pests so many reefers encounter. Be sure to cure the rock because for example, Pukani and Fiji are coming from the exact same place as the live rock. This will help to breakdown the organic material and reduce the excess nutrients being added to the tank. *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.

Week 6: Wiring your reef tank, everything you forgot to think about | 52 Weeks of Reefing
 
09:31
Welcome to the electrifying Week 6 of 52 Weeks of Reefing, where we share some tips and tricks on electrical safety, management, and planning! #BRS160 We are dealing with saltwater and electricity which can be both a health and fire hazard. It’s not that difficult to make it safe with careful planning during tank setup. The most important components to consider are your home's electrical infrastructure, water safety, and proper cord management. We’ll of course finish with the installation of our solution for the BRS160. The first step of this is make sure you have enough power for your tank. A typical four foot reef tank might have a 300 watt heater, LED lighting around 300 hundred watts, 50 to 100 watts of powerheads, a 100 watt return pump, 50 watt skimmer, and maybe another 50 for other filtration equipment. That's a base line of about a thousand watts for a typical aquarium. Add a chiller, UV light, T5 or halide lighting, calcium reactor, ozone reactor, Zeovit reactor, refugium and other various pieces of gear and you can quickly start using a considerable amount of power. Now that you know what you are working with and what the limit is we need to figure out two things; what else is on that circuit and and how much power will your tank consume. Once you have figured out your electrical load and how you are going to handle it try to avoid plugging more occasional high consumption items into that circuit in the future. Make sure you let your family know that it is a bad idea to plug in vacuums, clothes irons, hair driers and similar items into these outlets! Since we are dealing with water it is also highly recommend to use either GFI outlets or circuit breakers which help protect your tank and home from shorts, especially those related to water. If you can’t do that you can also use power bars which have GFI’s built in. Neatness and cord management are often overlooked, but this can also contribute to your tank's electrical safety. A dedicated "electrical board" goes a long way to keeping things organized and safe. Note: When choosing a fire extinguisher for your tank, make sure you go with a CO2 filled extinguisher, and not a monoammonium phosphate or ammonium sulfate filled one.  *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.

Programming your Kessil LED with the Spectral Controller | How To Tuesday
 
03:33
http://brs.li/KessilSpectral This episode of BRStv provides a quick demo on how to control your Kessil controllable LED light using the Kessil Spectral Controller. Kessil is one of the most popular aquarium lighting options out there because of the unique color spectrum, single point shimmer and ease of installation and controllability. The addition of the Spectral controller makes these LED's even more appealing because there's now a simple, cost-effective way to program them. So let's go over how to install and use the Spectral controller! Step One: Install the mounting plate. The controller is actually magnetic, which is a great convenience when accessing it but for this reason I wouldn't suggest installing it directly over open water. Step Two: Power the controller with supplied cable and connect to the lamp using the unit link cable, also included. One end of the unit link cable goes to the port labeled "port one" on the controller. The opposite end goes to the port labeled "zero to ten volt input." TIP: There are two ports on the bottom of the controller, so you can control two separate tanks using the same controller. You can also link multiple lights to the same control function by daisy chaining the lights together, or by using another data link cable from the zero to ten output from the master light to the zero to ten input of the slave lights. Step Three: Let's do some basic programming and get familiar with the interface.Hit the center "select" button which will bring up four options: 1. Manual 2. Program 3. Port Set 4. Settings First, navigate to the "settings" tab and hit the center "select" button twice which will allow you to set the time and date. Next, use the upper right button to go back to the navigation and select the "manual" tab. Hit the center "select" button and navigate to port one, hit "select." Here, you can try adjusting the intensity and color spectrum using the two slider bars and arrow buttons. This is the same functionality as the knobs on the actual LED. Step Four: To set up a control cycle for your LED, hit the "program" tab and and open up a "quick select" box. Use the time spots to program when you want the lights to ramp up and down. Once you have your "quick set" cycle set-up, back out to the main menu and select the "port set" tab followed by "port one." Select the cycle you just created and back out to the main menu. Your light is now set to ramp up and down! Another notable feature of the Spectral controller is acclimation mode which slowly adjusts your corals to your new light or light program over as much as fourteen days which is nice.

How to set up a Nano 16 Gallon Reef Tank #nuvo16
 
07:42
The Nuvo 16 Kit has been discontinued, please see the new 20 Fusion Kit here: http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/nuvo-fusion-20-gallon-starter-tank-kit.html Starting a reef tank can be so exciting and a little daunting if you don't know where to begin. At Bulkreefsupply.com we make reefing fun and easy, so for those new to reefing we thought we would show you how to easily set up a 16 gallon saltwater aquarium and we created a kit with everything you need. Step 1: Setting up the Tank So we included a Nano 16 Gallon Nuvo Aquarium from Innovative Marine. The tank is a sleek design, easily sets up and comes with LED lights, overflow and filtration columns on the back. Place the aquarium on a sturdy table or countertop. Adding the rock is completely up to personal preference but try to stack the rock so that it is a few inches away from the top and sides of the tank. Pour in your sand and evenly spread it around the rock and bottom of the tank. Step 2: Mixing Saltwater You can use any container to mix your saltwater, at BRS we recommend a trash can or five gallon bucket. Initially, we started by pouring 15 gallons of water into the container. We've included Crystal Sea Marinemix in the kit. This is a high quality salt containing a de-chlorinator so that you don't need to worry about the chlorine in your tap water. Add the salt to the water and let dissolve. By using the refractometer you can easily see the salinity of your water - we are shooting for 35 parts per thousand or 1.026. Fifteen gallons of water should take around seven or so cups of salt. Step 3: Get Familiar with the Back of the Tank The area at the back of the tank in used to house pumps, filters and heaters. So at this point let's take the heater and mount it in the left or right chamber and place it fairly low so that it will always be submerged. Check all your tubing connections. Pour you saltwater and plug everything in. Be sure to use a GFI outlet or a powerstrip with a GFI built in and be safe by having a drip loop on your cords. Set your heater to 78 degrees. Step 4: Install your Lights The Nano 16 comes with two LED lights that easily attach. That's it. Step 5: Cycle your Tank Cycling your tank allows beneficial bacteria to multiply. We've included our Reef Saver rock in this kit, which is 100% free of nuisance algae and pest organisms, and greatly reduces the time it takes for your tank to cycle. Let the tank sit overnight and heat up. The next morning add the Bio-Spira, this will make your tank ready for your first fish. We recommend a hardy fish like a clownfish. Then give your tank a month stabilize with the lights off before adding anything new. Keeping the lights off will help reduce algae growth that are common with new tanks. As a general rule, it is wise to never more than double your fish load in a single month meaning next month add another fish and possibly two the month after. Step 6: Choose your Tank Inhabitants Choose fish that will help you be successful: clownfish, purple or red fire fish, shrimp and goby pairs, lawnmower or midas blennys or an orchid dotty back. Once the tank is stabilized around your fish population,you can add snails, crabs and shrimp. Nassarious and astria snails are popular as well as small hermits, emerald crabs, cleaner shrimp, peppermint shrimp and pistol shrimp. The LED lights that come with the aquarium are strong enough to keep some low light corals, as a beginner is also wise to select some that don't require much effort like soft or even some LPS corals. Zoanthids, mushrooms, ricordea, polyps, candy canes, duncan, torch and frog spawn. Step 7: Tank Maintenance It is wise to feed the fish only a small amount. Overfeeding can easily pollute the tank and cause algae growth. Due to evaporation, you will need to top off the tank with freshwater every couple of days. We recommend distilled or reverse osmosis water. Keeping the glass clean with a glass cleaner and performing a partial water change - say, 5 gallons every other week. Step 8: Enjoy Your New Saltwater Aquarium

Will Red Sea Reef Energy Help Corals Grow? BRStv Product Spotlight
 
07:10
http://brs.li/reefenergy Today on BRStv we have a product spotlight on Red Sea Reef Energy which is part of the Red Sea Reef Care Program. So the first question to ask is -- do you really need to feed corals? The simple answer is no. There are many successful reef tanks out there that do not feed their corals. However, reefing is about find what is best for your tank and implementing that into your saltwater aquarium. This is why coral nutritional additives are produces by so many reefing manufacturers. Generally most reef hobbyists look for tissue and polyp health and changes in coloration. But the biggest sign of health is growth. Growth in and of itself is a really good indicator of health. And generally speaking most living organisms use energy in the following manor, first for metabolic function and tissue repair, second for growth and third reproduction. So Red Sea Reef Energy - what is it? Simply put, it is a two part system -- Reef Energy A and Reef Energy B. Reef Energy A is the necessary carbohydrates that make is easier for your corals to absorb the nutrients and amino acids in Reef Energy B. Red Sea does a really good job breaking down what can seem like a pretty complicated process. Red Sea research has led them to conclude that most corals get 85% of their nutrition from their symbiotic algae. The other 15% must come from another source and so Red Sea set out to provide these essential elements to maximize growth, coloration and health. Red Sea Reef Energy Part A is comprised mainly of carbohydrates, amino acids, fatty acids and suspended protein flocks. All of which are necessary for metabolic functions like protein production and soft tissue regeneration. Red Sea Part B is comprised of a concentrated solution of vitamins and marine amino acids which Red Sea found were important parts of coral nutrition and limiting factors. They also found the included vitamins are an important precursor to the proper formation of proteins. All of these elements found in this product are marine-based. Dosing these products is easy. Just a few milliliters per 25 gallons of water dosed every day.

Week 38: Mounting corals: epoxy, super glue, and lighting tweaks | 52 Weeks of Reefing
 
14:17
Today on Week 38 of BRStv's 52 Weeks of Reefing, we are showing you our favorite ways to mount corals and frags in your tank! #BRS160 Generally there are three main methods that we use when mounting frags: Gel Bubble, Air Water Gel Hybrid, and Epoxy Hybrid Gel Bubble: Super glue has a tendency to form a skin underwater. We use this to our advantage by squeezing a metal super glue tube out underwater, forming a glue bubble. This bubble can be gently grabbed under water, and pressed onto your rock work. Then, it's only a matter of placing your coral into the bubble and allowing it to cure. Air Water Gel Hybrid: One of the most popular methods of coral mounting, this involves simply applying a blob of super glue onto the mounting surface of your coral, and then pressing it onto your rock work. Giving the coral a quick twist onto the rock surface will break the super glue skin, exposing uncured glue and forming a bond to the rock. Epoxy Hybrid: This method requires the use of both epoxy and super glue. Essentially you apply a dab of super glue on each side of a ball of epoxy, sandwiching the epoxy between glue, coral, and rock. *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.

How To Build an Aquarium Screen Net Top | DIY
 
03:23
http://brs.li/DIYScreenTop Keep your fish in the tank with minimal impact on light penetration with a do-it-yourself screen net top! To build this, you have two options: 1. Buy the items at a big box hardware store (probably the cheapest option). 2. Buy our DIY Screen Net Top Kit, which has everything you need including the screen frame, corners, spline, spline roller and clear netting. The clear 1/4" netting is really hard to find, but we do have it available on our site: http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/clear-netting.html Once you have all your materials, here's how to build the top: Step 1: Measure the inside lip of the aquarium frame, or rimless tank to get the dimensions for your new top. Step 2: Subtract the corner from the total length and width. Each corner is 3/4", and there's one on each side so you will need to subtract a total of 1 1/2" off each side. Step 3: Measure and mark two pieces of frame. Step 4: Cut the frame. TIP: We use a hacksaw in a series of backward strokes, which cuts through the aluminum frame easily Step 5: Assemble the frame with the corners. Step 6: Install the screen using the spline and spline roller. TIP: This step is easier and yields better results when done by two people; one to hold the screen in place and one to roll in the spline. It's not difficult to do alone, if need be though. TIP: The easiest way to achieve a taut and square look is to cut the netting to a more manageable size, just a few inches larger than the frame you are working with. Step 7: Cut off excess netting using a sharp razor. You're done! If you have a plastic rim aquarium, all you need to do is set it in place. If you have a rimless tank, you have a few options. First would be to use a reef safe epoxy covered magnet, or you could attach a few pieces of acrylic to the glass with silicone for the top to rest on.

How to start a 20 gallon nano reef tank #fusion20 | Innovative Marine Nuvo 20
 
07:25
http://brs.li/Nuvo_20 Starting a reef tank can be so exciting and a little daunting if you don't know where to begin. At Bulkreefsupply.com we make reefing fun and easy, so for those new to reefing we thought we would show you how to easily set up a 20 gallon saltwater aquarium and we created a kit with everything you need. Step 1: Setting up the Tank I’m going to use this new tank kit which includes a 20 gallon Nuvo tank from Innovative Marine but you could apply the information in this video to basically any similar sized tank, especially those in the Nuvo lines which are designed around making things easy for newer reefers and attractive at the same time. The tank is a sleek design, easily sets up and comes with LED lights, overflow and filtration columns on the back. Place the aquarium on a sturdy table or countertop. Adding the rock is completely up to personal preference but try to stack the rock so that it is a few inches away from the top and sides of the tank. Pour in your sand and evenly spread it around the rock and bottom of the tank. Step 2: Mixing Saltwater Mixing the salt water is easy. Rubbermaid Brute brand trash cans are the most common reef safe containers used to mix saltwater in. Just add the salt to the water and look through the included tool called a refractometer to measure the salinity. The scale inside measures salt in parts per thousand or specific gravity. More or less just dissolve the salt, add a few drops of water to the window, close, wait 20 seconds or so and look through the eye piece. It should read 35ppt or 1.026. Once you have the correct salinity use the included dechlorinator to make the water safe for the tank. Step 3: Get Familiar with the Back of the Tank While you are waiting for the salt to dissolve, take a moment to check all the tubing connections on the pump and get familiar with the back of the tank. This area in the back is used to house equipment like pumps, filters and heaters where they are out of the way. Go ahead and mount the heater, make sure it is placed fairly low so it will stay submerged at all times. Once you have everything situated pour your mixed saltwater and plug everything in. Since we are dealing with water the ideal outlet has a GFI like one you would find in a bathroom or kitchen or a power strip with a GFI built in. Step 4: Install your Lights The Fusion 20 comes with two LED lights that easily attach. That's it. Step 5: Cycle your Tank Cycling your tank allows beneficial bacteria to multiply. We've included our Reef Saver rock in this kit, which is 100% free of nuisance algae and pest organisms, and greatly reduces the time it takes for your tank to cycle. Let the tank sit overnight and heat up. The next morning add the Bio-Spira, this will make your tank ready for your first fish. We recommend a hardy fish like a clownfish. Then give your tank a month stabilize with the lights off before adding anything new. Keeping the lights off will help reduce algae growth that are common with new tanks. As a general rule, it is wise to never more than double your fish load in a single month meaning next month add another fish and possibly two the month after. Step 6: Choose your Tank Inhabitants Choose fish that will help you be successful: clownfish, purple or red fire fish, shrimp and goby pairs, lawnmower or midas blennys or an orchid dotty back. Once the tank is stabilized around your fish population,you can add snails, crabs and shrimp. Nassarious and astria snails are popular as well as small hermits, emerald crabs, cleaner shrimp, peppermint shrimp and pistol shrimp. The LED lights that come with the aquarium are strong enough to keep some low light corals, as a beginner is also wise to select some that don't require much effort like soft or even some LPS corals. Zoanthids, mushrooms, ricordea, polyps, candy canes, duncan, torch and frog spawn. Step 7: Tank Maintenance It is wise to feed the fish only a small amount. Overfeeding can easily pollute the tank and cause algae growth. Due to evaporation, you will need to top off the tank with freshwater every couple of days. We recommend distilled or reverse osmosis water. Keeping the glass clean with a glass cleaner and performing a partial water change - say, 5 gallons every other week. Step 8: Enjoy Your New Saltwater Aquarium!

Magnesium: The magic that holds your reef tank together
 
06:30
http://brs.li/BRSMagnesium Did you know that magnesium is the element that essentially makes reefing possible? Magnesium is used by corals for metabolic function to stay healthy and grow. However, since it's not largely or quickly consumed, it's pretty easy to maintain with infrequent additions of a supplement like magnesium chloride, or even just water changes. So, what's the magnesium doing in your tank? Let's back up a bit. If you caught our last two videos, you know that the corals in your tank are pulling both calcium and alkalinity (which we'll refer to as carbonate) from the surrounding water to support its overall health and growth. The problem is that the calcium and carbonate ions also have quite the affinity for each other, and will join in the tank to form calcium carbonate crystals. You might see the results of this as a white buildup on on your heaters and pumps, or even tiny particles settling in your sand bed. Here's where the magnesium comes in! The magnesium ions in the tank prevent the calcium carbonate crystals from growing by incorporating itself into the growing calcium carbonate crystal, which makes it unattractive to additional calcium and carbonate ions. This is what makes it possible to maintain appropriate levels of calcium and alkalinity. Low magnesium levels will likely cause you problems when trying to maintain proper calcium and alkalinity levels. How can we raise and maintain our magnesium levels? You have two options: magnesium chloride and magnesium sulfate. Magnesium chloride is the most abundant ion in natural seawater, which makes it the most popular option for reefers because additions have minimal impact to overall water chemistry. The first step to finding out how much magnesium your tank needs is testing your tank for current levels. Two of the most common test kits are made by Salifert and Red Sea. We like the Red Sea kit because it's high quality and has inexpensive refill kits, which makes it the lowest overall cost in the long run. Once you know your current levels, you can use the reef calculator (http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/reef-calculator) to identify the amount you need to add to reach your desired levels. 1350ppm is an ideal level, however, anywhere from 1320ppm to 1380ppm is recommended. You can select which product you want to use to raise your levels. We recommendation keeping a jug of magnesium solution premixed and on hand. Ideally, this is a mix of 7 3/4 cup magnesium chloride and 3/4 cup magnesium sulfate, with enough purified water to make a gallon of solution. If you don't have magnesium sulfate, most reefers find it acceptable to skip and just use 8 cups of magnesium chloride. A few notes on mixing; use purified water like distilled or RO/DI, and shake until fully mixed. There's a lot of salt being mixed here, so this will take some shaking! If you see salt crystals at the bottom of the jug, let it sit overnight or float it in some hot water. It's worth noting that the BRS magnesium additives are pharmaceutical grade, so as long as you use purified water it should result in a crystal clear solution. Finally, it's pretty common for salt mixes to be low in magnesium, probably because its one of the more expensive components. You can add magnesium directly to your salt mixing container to give it a boost prior to a water change. If you haven't already, be sure to subscribe so you don't miss next weeks video!

It's Week 25 of 52 Weeks of Reefing, and this week we are exploring filters socks, pads, and some revolutionary new technology in the Theiling Rollermat. #BRS160 Mechanical filtration is an important aspect in the modern reef tank, with most hobbyists opting to choose filter socks as a simple means to removing particulate matter from the tank. Removing the particulate matter like uneaten food, fish waste, and detritus from the tank prior to it being broken down by natural processes is a fantastic way to contribute to nutrient control. As awesome as filter socks are, there is a new technology on the market that we have been testing over the last few months: the Theiling Rollermat. The Rollermat is an ingeniously designed system that utilizes a roll of automatically changing filter pad material to remove particulate matter from the tank.

Week 43: Aquarium Controllers: Protecting your tank, wallet and space | 52 Weeks of Reefing
 
13:13
It's Week 43 of 52 Weeks of Reefing, and this week we are starting an exciting new mini-series that is focused on controllers! Today we're starting with what they do a, brief overview of the different players, and a set of goals we have for all the equipment on the #BRS160. In the following weeks we will install a variety of controllers and show you how to program them to meet these goals. So what are the advantages of an aquarium controller, and why would anyone buy one? I think it revolves around three basic concepts; they save on space, money and clutter. Controllers take all the separate elements of the life-support system and unify them so they work together cohesively, and most importantly protect you from disasters as well as notify you they are happening. This gives you valuable time to save your tank from some pretty costly disasters. They save on space simply because almost all of them have built in internal timers so those timers shaped like bricks that take up multiple spots are a thing of the past. In fact we remove the need for all kinds of space eating equipment like PH, ORP, Salinity monitors or controllers, wave markers, temperature controllers and the cord octopus disaster that comes with that mess. All that clutter is not only unattractive and a pain to manage but one element that a lot of reefers miss until it’s too late is an organized install is also a safer install. We are dealing with saltwater, electricity, and cords which are more or less water freeways directly into your homes electrical outlet which have fairly obvious health and safety concerns. Remember that neatness counts! One thing a lot of newer reefers miss is controllers are also substantially less expensive than buying all this equipment separately. A bunch pf digital timers, quality power bars, temperature controllers, OPR, salinity monitors or controllers, wave makers can easily be in excess of five hundred to a thousand dollars. With something like the reef keeper you can get all this for anywhere from just over a hundred to into the two hundreds. Do you have a favorite controller? Is there something controllers don't offer that you would like to see implemented in future products?

FAQ #45: Can my refugium work too well? | 52 FAQ
 
08:54
Test your water parameters with these Hanna Checkers! http://brs.li/hanna_checker Today on BRStv, we have another episode of BRS 52 FAQ where we answer all of your frequently asked reefing questions from our popular 52 Weeks of Reefing series. This week we answer another question from "googlereallysucks", "Can macro algae in a refugium drive nutrient levels too low?" Is it possible for a ball of chaeto or other macro algae to completely remove all nutrients from your tank? First, we should understand what constitutes "nutrients" in or reef tanks. Nutrients come in many forms other than the most common nitrate and phosphates. Corals use nutrients such as sugars and amino acids to perform their metabolic functions like growth, reproduction and overall health. They will use these to produce fats, proteins and carbohydrates which are also forms of nutrients. Unless someone is intentionally driving nutrients down to nothing using a refugium, which isn't what most are trying to achieve, it seems nearly impossible for a refugium alone to strip the tank. A good goal to shoot for in a reef tank is one that is balanced both in basic nutrients like nitrates and phosphates as well as available nutrients like sugars and amino acids. So follow along while Ryan shares his views on nutrients in the reef tank and tries to help make your reefing life a bit more fun and easy! *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.
