MAG now at 1290, after 80 ml dose from 1250.
Jawfish adjusted well seems happy, but not leaving it's hole, since happy maybe he never will, target feeding him for now.
Cardinal fish has minor fin rot.

MAG 1250/1400. 80 ml , 40 ppm
CAL 440 / 450 25 ml/ppm
KNO3 20 ml, 5 ppm nitrate.
Mixed 250 ml ro/di water ; 20 grams KNO3 ; 1 ml - 0.25 ppm.
Added jawfish today.
Macroon clown has began chasing wrasse fish, may need to buy more live rock to stop chasing.
Will removed soon gonipora, monticap and dead brain coral, as all are mostly dead.

skimmer very full. more than usual.
December 23, 2020 22:49
Skimmer contains tons of pineapple sponge.
Skimmer found slim floating on top of return area, removed cup by cup.
Small signs of dinos returning, very small. Monitoring Phosphate, for likely cause.

Skimmer oddly not skimming much lately. (few weeks)
Increasing Bio-pellets, nitrates rising. Now 100 ML from 50 ml.

Forgot to log, but the Dinos are completely gone, for sometime. Unsure what destroyed them the micron filters or the medicine I added.
Goniopora, Alveopora, Acro all still seem dead. Hope Goniopora will come back. Ready to buy corals again soon.
Started PO4 dosing sometime ago, last week reduced PO4 dosing to once a week will need to continue monitoring. Nitrates are now starting to increase, worried bio-pellets lost effectiveness.

Monticap seems alive, Alveopora seems dead. Goniopora still sick. Slightly increased bio pellets.
Dinos significantly reduced, have 3 remaining 5 micron socks, do not plan to buy more.

*BTA died idk 7 days ago maybe. Feel death of BTA caused other corals to become sick.
- Acro coral dead,
- Alveopora coral died, small chance is still alive waiting..
- Monticap coral probably dead.
- Goniopora coral very closed.
* Unrelated candy cane coral covered with algae, feel may eventually die.
Yesterday added Metronidazole for dino control. my plan:
Day 1: Dose metro
Day 2: Dose metro
Day 3: Dose metro
Day 4 - 14: Wait and see results.
* Bio-pellets seems to not be lowering po4 or nitrate anymore. Feel nitrate is always same 4-8 ppm. Will wait and see.
* All dosing remains off. ALK isn't lowering much.
Goniopora completely closed, red acan coral looks off. Noticed skimmer was off probably over 24 hours, turned back on.
BTA visible in white bowl, will very like die or is dead (from ALK spike last week); monitoring health.
