Advice:My reef tank’s 3 years as on 27.08.09. Corals are thriving and had no setbacks. I use Red Sea products. Phosphate removers are not readily available here and RO units here have high TDS, so have been using Aquafina. However, Aquafina being expensive, I’ve been able to do 30% water changes every 6 month. Your comments and suggestions are welcome.
