    Without the Friday AM Quick Tip, how will we know it’s Friday? 🙂

    Not quite sure why you are ending such a great resource such as this but hopefully you will replace the Friday quick tip with something better

  • Damion says:

    The 8.3 pH tip, must be coupled with the knowledge of your alkalinity being important to keep between 8dkh and 11dkh.and where your pH falls with the correct dkh doesn’t matter all that much. Most sps guys like 9dkh. CO2 scrubber into your skimmer air intake can help those who keep a tightly closed up house.
    Thanks Mark

    Hey Mark, I love the quick tips and have learned quite a few things watching them. I like the idea of a “Wednesday Write-Up”, perhaps going into detail on a few new things and tech equipment for our hobby. Also interested in hearing what has been going on in the legislation world that could kill our hobby. My wife and I spoke to you about that at the Denver MACNA Con.

    Thanks for all the hard worl and sharing your love of the hobby.
