Removed 2 a160's and re-added Hydra 26 running mostly blues 55 percent. Noticing some coraline pealing off levels of no4 p04 are near 0 and algae in back chambers are growing well. Glass still gets dirty each day, also added seachem puragen which really looks to have dropped no3.

Lowered Moon box coral lighting again, aiming for only 4 hours of white lighting at 35% only. Blues are higher running 8 1/2 hours total. 6-25-16
added kessil a160w running 65% to center on angle, seems to help with green slimmer since it needs more light then the other corals. Doing well at 2.5PPM N03 :-) 6-25-16
Removed the biggest of the mushrooms by pulling large rock out, was burning monti's and covering other corals. 7-14-17
Removed AI hydra last week, also increased whites to 80 percent on both moon box leds, also alk is running at 6.2, increasing from 8ml alk/cal to now 12ml a day. Will see how that goes.
Shut down center AI Hydra
Added 13ml of alk/cal/mag to increase numbers. Also increased dosing to every 3 hours 1 ml.
issues with alk, manual dosed 30ml of alk/cal/mag today
Increased Moon's led's from W65/B's55 to W65 / B's80

Added 4 good size LIFE rock pieces to back of display in hopes to add more surface air as well as increased water movement from MP10. Corals have recently been shocked in the pasted 3 weeks from possible to many large of water changes or to high of no4 (to much feeding) or different salt mix (IO) or lighting or to high alk. Unfortunately during that time we lost a few corals mostly SPS have gone dark with no PE, come corals like always are not effected. NOT going to do a water change for a while and wait it out for corals to come back as well as see if new rock will start to cycle (get algae) also going to lower alk/cal similar to ocean waters since its bb, going to keep an eye of feeding and no4 levels. Good news is in the past week with all the changes,new lightning, new rock and lower alk corals seem ok or at least doing a little better then a few weeks ago.
