Changed 2g of water. Been a long time, but Dino?s have completely subsided as a result of the UV. Only lost the green birds nest.
Dino's have gotten completely out of hand. PO4 is above .2 but they're still a problem. Probably going to do a large water change tonight or soon.
Had a major mistake 2 days ago. Dumped all the all and calcium into the tank by missetting the timer. Whole tank was white when I noticed, so I did an emergency 75% water change. No RTN or STN yet, but I’m watching closely.
Increased lighting to 73%

Cleaned out the refugium and it was nasty. Clouded up the whole tank.

Added 1% to lights: 71% total now.

Bumped refugium light to 8 hours from 6 because nitrate has risen.

Added 20 minutes to the end of the main day lighting. Reduced white to 18% and green to 0 during that period.

Alkalinity dropping could be from high phosphate. Keep an eye on the relationship

Definitely some color loss (darkening, slight loss of fluorescence) in some corals, probably because of nitrate. Plan is to let Nitrate stabilize. Once things find a happy balance, if that balance is nitrate > 5 or so, and colors don?t recover, increase the lights. If that doesn?t help after a month or two, then drop nutrients a bit more until we find an ideal balance.
