Cleaned everything today, made some changes on circulation and such. other than that everything is as it should be and i am trying to do as little as possible.
Not much to write things move along.
Alkaline seems to be stable, raising dose .5 again to keep up.

Corals are all showing polyps and they are also starting to show more colors and g
Stuff seems to be moving along nicely, not much to to do, all I can do now is wait.
Calibrated doser.

1 ok, 2 ok, 3 +1ml, 4 +2ml
Everything is growing and looking fine, individual dosing of faulty parameters almost done, the Aussie is showing stress symptoms from the low values but should pick up soon. Moved it to a shadow area
Transfered fish back to tank since they where doing fine. Don't think I had what I thought after all. Did not dose any copper in quarantine tank and had no more losses.

Words of Wisdom

What works for others wont work for you. Have a LOT of patience.

Disasters & Regrets

Bought a acrylic tank once from Germany that cracked. made me have to give away about half my tanks livestock to friends.

Today i really wish i would have gotten something else since i still have not been reimbursed in any way.
