I am. In fact I only use Radions for all of my system. But I think the diffuser on the other is a waste of money. If something not broken, we don't need to fix it right?!

I picked it up from a friend. Unfortunately I lost it during the tank crash.

I think you meant parameter?
I keep Alk in range of 8dkh to 9dkh. I dose Cal at the same rate as Alk to keep it around 450~500ppm.
I feed frozen mysis and brine shrimp very day.

Pretty sure youíve answered this before but to continue with the parameters question: where do you keep n and p and do you monitor potassium?
Do you dose anything?

I don't keep track of my No3 and Po4 numbers. I do dose Potassium via Redsea color ABCD. (At rate of 1ml each component per week now).
Beside that I am dosing Flatworm stop now.

Thatís right.. I forgot you donít follow n and p. Do you ever test?? Iím so curious.
1ml per week, seems quite low.. how many gallons on this system?
Are you dosing flatworm stop as a preventative for aefw or for its purported health benefits for the acros?

I haven't test no4 in a couple years now, and po4, I tested last time when I had the crash a couple months ago. It was 0.3ppm or 0.35ppm on Hanna Phosphorus if I remember correctly. I tested, but then I felt that number was so...useless because I never keep track of it so I don't have anything to compare to that number 0.3ppm.
I used to dose 1ml each component each day on my 45 gallons system when that system consume 100ml of Alk a day. But this system is quite new plus mostly frags, consumption is only ag 40ml a day so I don't bother dosing much trace elements.
About the flatworm stop, a friend of mine recommended it to me when my tank crashed, he claimed it help with the corals health. So I got 1l bottle and it still last until now. I can't tell if it works or not now. But when this bottle empty I will stop and see if everything turn down hill, then I can tell.
