Thank you! Ive been side tracked working on many home projects including getting my basement sump room built

This is now live and review/testing multiple configurations on that mtc mvx skimmer


Getting my little basic lab table setup



And testing out a treatment for dinoflagellates. But I've got a lot of pictures I want to get posted in this thread very soon from that testing.

Lets get this going again and with a bang

Detritus from my ATS









Pics and videos uploading. And I finally got to capture cell division. Several times. And very much up close. I hope the video came out. It was awesome seeing it rip apart at 2500x.

Just after the 3minute and 30 second mark ripping itself off close up
https://youtu.be/rQK20qo09m4

The video after this one shows a big split farther out.

7 minutes 15 seconds or so possibly producing some type of gas bubbles just after it swarms around what looks like possibly encysted dinos. This things is cool. This is just before the little ball split up.

Little background on this one. I dose limewater for 1 second every 2 minutes 24/7. The peristaltic pump that does this has a rate of 250ml/m.

I also dose a carbon source (vodka/vinegar right now) every 4 hours via another dosing pump.

They end up at a T together and dose out the same end and spot.



This keeps the tip clean from calcium buildup and some fun chemical reactions...another thread

My sump gets a lot of bacteria buildup which is fine with me. Particularly right in the spot the dosing happens



I sucked in some of that and keep in mind it's hit consistently with some pretty high alk/pH 24/7 so didn't know what to expect.






Pictures and videos uploading now.

You took this to a whole new level. Thanks for the picks. I'd love to see some tissue from your corals.
