Had another runaway ATO. Did two 3-gal water changes but looks like I lost some SPS due to the pH and Alk swings. I've removed Kalk from the ATO now and am not adding it again until I get a pH contr
Came home to find the osmolator had dumped a bunch of kalk into the tank. It was full to the top! Corals looked terrible and snails were upside down. Did a 80% water change and got salinity back to
WWC Nuclear Halo didn't make it nor did the Xenia. Huge bloom of dyno and brown algae all over the zoas. Some close and shrunk and flaked off. Got a UV Sterilizer to put in tank and that has helped
Added more coral from Aquatic Sealife and WWC. 10 frags total over 2 weeks. Mostly softies and a few LPS. So far the Xenia didn't make it (I think the dip in CoralRx and Bayer was too much for it).
Goby looking good again. Porcelain crab had been missing the last 2 days. Snails are great and remaining sexy shrimp still shaking
noticed one of the sexy shrimp died so I removed the top and reached in to get it out and the goby jumped about 2 feet out the tank and hit the floor. I was able to get him back in within a few secon
