It’s no secret that a reverse system is considered essential for reef-keeping. It’s just not worth the risk to use unfiltered tap water in your reef aquarium. That’s why we’re excited to announce that Puratek RODI filters are back!
Keeping nitrate under control has always been a concern because nitrate is the end-product of nitrification via your biological filtration so it’s continually added to your aquarium water. It may seem like a constant battle to keep nitrate under control. The good news is there are many proven ways to minimize nitrate build-up.
Phosphate has always been a hot topic with reef keepers. It’s in our tap water. It’s in fish and invert food. Phosphate gets the blame for algae problems. Some say it even hurts corals. We’ll break it down and tell you everything you need to know about phosphate and how to control it in your aquarium.
Many of us have accidentally left our reverse osmosis system running, which then resulted in a flood. With what’s at stake in a RO-flood, the XP Aqua Flood Guardian is money well-spent. In this video we’ll show you how to install one. Check it out!
David (Dave) Troop of Aquatic Life joined us to share his lighting expertise to help you select the right light for your tank. We discussed LED, T5, and—you guessed it—hybrids! His company also produces reverse osmosis systems and accessories for aquarium use so we explore that topic as well!
A healthy aquarium begins with quality water. In this guest post from Kevin Costa of Hanna Instruments, we will dive deeper into understanding Total Dissolved Solids and Electrical Conductivity Measurements and the impact that these measurements can have on your RODI filters and your aquarium.
Planted aquariums are not difficult but they do provide a challenge both in aquascaping along with plant care. Many tropical fish develop richer colors when kept with live plants. Follow along as we take a bottom to top approach to setting up a planted aquarium.
You’ve been good this year. Really good. We actually peeked at Santa’s “nice” list and saw your name printed in bold lettering across the top. In short, you deserve a really nice gift.
The AquaticLife Smart Buddie Booster Pump monitors and automatically increases the incoming water pressure for RO/DI filtration systems to 80 psi, the ideal input pressure to achieve the best system performance.
We look at the main serviceable components of an RO/DI system and explain how to service each part. If you take good care of your RO filter, it will always provide pure water when you need it!
