it's been a while, but after having some sps corals for a month, am seeing limited to no growth.

Decided to give the Red Sea Reef Care program a try, their accelerated growth part. Working daily to raise my alkalinity up to 12.6 dKh, 465 Calcium and 1390 Magnesium.

As of yesterday my Alk was at 9.3, Calcium 425, and Magnesium as of the last test was 1420.

Nitrates are in the 4 range, working to get them to 1-2 ppm, and PO4 is at 0.01, and Red Sea recommends 0.1-0.4 (I think).

Additionally, I have adjusted my light from 100% blue, 15% white, to 20% white. Final resting spot for the white channel will be 50% or there abouts.

What will I be dosing with the Red Sea program?

Reef Foundation A (Calcium), B (Alkalinity) and C (Magnesium) - 1kg powder
Reef Colors A, B, C, D
No3PO4-x
Reef Energy A & B
Red Sea Coral Pro Salt

Amounts are TBD.

After a bit, and getting the corals to grow, will dial back and do their color enhancing program. I figure at the end of it, I can tell anyone how it works, if it works.

Currently in the tank:
2 Clowns
1 Yellow Tang
1 Tomini Tang
1 Green Bubble Tip Anemone

in QT: Midas Blenny (the other one died for some inexplicable reason) and a Hippo Tang. Treating tank with Coppersafe.
