In an attempt to correct Mag I was a little heavy handed. I’m over my target by 350ppm. I will begin water changes this week, and slowly bring it down. It shouldn’t hurt much in the tank, but I thi
Trying to get Mag back up to normal levels or a bit higher. Targeting 1475 for now. Dosing over the next 3 days to get it back to the correct levels.
Large patch of bubble algae has appeared on the left back row of rocks. Upping mag and buying two more emerald crabs. Afraid the old emerald is dead.
Back from MACNA. Bought lists of coral but lost all but one piece of SPS on the ride home. I'll add the coral to livestock soon.
Lost my Naso Tang while at MACNA. RIP Zelda, she was my little puppy fish. :(
I moved the remaining Jason fox corals off the sand bed and onto temporary spots on the rocks. I will let them sit a week or two and then epoxy them if they like the spots I have chosen.

Disasters & Regrets

Used pumps and powerheads. Don't ever do this. Buy new, don't be cheap!

I got used gyres, hate them! I have replaced almost every part on the dang things.
I bought a cheap return. It leached aluminum into my tank crashing it.

Wish I had gone ecotech from the start!
