Just a little bit of an update.  
I know this first pic sucks cause it's from my phone, but I wanted to show the growth difference in 9 months since I upgraded to the Gen 4 pros. They are currently running at 100%.  
I'm also convinced the more you cut and frag, the faster your corals grow.  I know close to zero about the science and biology of the corals, but I do know when you hurt them, they go into a defensive and reproductive mode.  I've given away so many mini colonies the last 6 months and everywhere my colonies have been sliced up, they double and triple in size where I cut them.  



A few other random shots.

What do you keep your kh, cal and mag? Usually, its bad to chase ph... might cause more harm than good. But buffers would help keep it stable.

Skimmer air intake outside would help as would a C02 scrubber on the skimmer air intake. .

Honestly unless your tank is showing signs of reacting to the change I personally wouldn't worry about it.

Hey guys,
I've noticed that everytime my wife starts cooking and fires up the stove or the oven the ph in the tank plummets.
She loves to cook, so this is a common occurence. I know I know, its hard to complain about being provided with delicious food everyday!

I'm sure the problem is the gases produced from the gas range and oven. Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide levels rising in the house must be the cause.

The result is pretty dramatic, the ph will usually drop about 2 to 3 tenths of a point, for example today it went from 8.1 to 7.8 in the hour she was cooking dinner. As my wife's favorite hobby is cooking and baking, she will sometimes spend the entire day in the kitchen on the weekends with something new going in the oven every hour. On days like that, the ph falls off a cliff sometimes all the way from 8.2 to 7.4!

Opening the windows helps a little, but now that its getting closer to winter that doesn't seem to be an option.

Anyone have any ideas here? Ever experienced the same thing?


For a little background here: my tank is pretty new, 90 gallons, 5 months old. I dose 2 part using brs dosing pumps and manually dose phyto plankton daily. I have a refugium with chaeto that is lit 24/7 to help fight the nightly ph swings.

I don't dose anything else to maintain ph. Is there a buffer I should be adding to help maintain a healthy ph? Should I run my skimmer's air intake outside?

I don't think the number of areas collecting using Cyanide is a significant number in the current trade. Almost all islands, water ways, estuaries and collection zones are under some form of regulation that helps prevent this method of capture. So while you may still run into it from time to time I don't believe that it is the norm as it used to be.

I also don't share the same level of enthusiasm about garlic treatments that Mark does but if it works for you then by all means go with it.
