    Thank you so much for answering. I have Black Seachem fluorite sand for the first 3 inches in the front then towards the back regular black Seachem fluorite. It's been set up for 4 or 5 months, when I set it up I put about 12 teaspoons of osmocote plus underneath the substrate. I will change the RGB and white to that number, so blue is zero right? I will put the surface skimmer on a timer. I add 6 ppm of kno3 ,2 ppm kh2po4 and 2ppm of mgso4 and a little extra k 3ppm every other day. Traces are Csm+b 0.33 ppm every other day.
    I change 50% of water everyweek, don't skip dosing or WC. I have a sera 1000 reactor on one canister and an inline atomic diffuser on the other canister. Ph drops in less than one hour. I have miller microplex, flourish traces,iron gluconate powder, Seachem iron, DTPA and last month I bought EDDHA... Maybe the skimmer is combining with the oxygen it pulls in and oxidizing the iron? Thanks again for your help.

    Good evening: Your tank looks beautiful and lush. I currently have 2 e series on a rimless that is 48"x22x20h. Do you mind sharing your photoperiod and percentage for each color of the RGB?
    My lights are at 24 from the substrate with white at 100, red 100,green 0' blue 0,
    My GH is 4, KH 1 (use ro di water and reconstitute it)
    I dose EI But my plants are pale , no matter how much iron I dose, plants do not have that rich green color that I achieved when I was running 4 T5 HO.
    Co2 is as high as my discus will tolerate (a ph drop of 1.2 points) I have eheim canisters (good flow) and an eheim surface skimmer. Sharing your parameters might give me a clue on what I Am missing.
    In pictures it looks beautiful but I am not sure if these LEDS are nuking out my traces.
    This is my first time asking a question directly to anyone. I would really appreciate some info.
    Thanks

    Hey Alan, knowing that you do many great regulator builds, I was wondering if you might have an idea where I might find a very specific part. Being a bit of a newb on regulator components, it seems I have lost the internal spring on one of my solenoid valves. Below is a pic of the coil for the solenoid - hopefully you can tell me where I might find a replacement spring. Or (hopefully) you or maybe one of the other great builders might actually have one laying around. Let me know your thoughts and thanks ahead of time for your time.
