Scopas has a lot of white spots. Squamipinnis added week ago also had some spots which seem to have transferred to scopas.

Alk measured with old Salifert = 6.3 dKH and with new Salifert = 8.0 dKH.

Alk measured with Salifert = 8 dKH and with Royal Nature = 10,1 dKH. Salifert 6,7 dKH control solution is measured as 9,1 dKH with Royal Nature test. Also sample for Marin Lab taken.
Added 8.12: MarinLab result is 10,4 dKH.

Fish are fine and healthy. LPS corals were obviously stressed by the alkalinity spike of 12 dKH, but thing seems to be better when I gradually got it drop to 10 dKH. While also noticing the calsium to be dropped to 300 mg / liter... Whoops.
Maybe the parameters need some close attention for few weeks.

Scopas seems to have some white spots. I'll start a regimen of garlic-enchanted Dr Bassleers Matrine - food.

Measured magnesium levels for long time and seems to be 1200 mg/l. I think I'm gonna start adding that again as part of balling method dosing.

Cyanobacteria keeps blooming on the sand surface. Increasing the flow seems to help a bit, but I guess the problem goes away only after natural light is reduced on autumn and the heat drops (normally 25 celsius, now 26 - 27). All the corals are growing great and colors are vibrant. And the fish seem healthy including both tangs which seem not to care about each other anymore.
Careful pellet-feeding started again. Palm sized spot of cyano on sand surface.
Amount of cyanobacteria has been increased on sand surface. Probably due to increased natural light.

Water change tank has been unintentionally off loop due to bad circulation. --> Water change and tank back to loop. More brown algae on the glass surfaces than usually.
