    Sorry to hear this is happening to you. Has there been any kind of chemical use near or around the tank? (air freshners, carpet cleaners, aerosol sprays ect...) #reefsquad #spsexperts

    Sand was a bad idea. Sorry , I’ve had those too. Mare cake in than Po4.

    Rust would show yes , also in other elements Besides iron.

    Sounds at first like alk burn (high alk low nutrients) but you have higher nutrients (maybe not high enough to balance ??)


    Other options , bacterial infection.
    Flow light alk nutrients not at the sweet spot.
    Ph too high? And alk swing from dosing ?

    Umm.....

  5. Another Clear Water Thread: How to keep water crystal clear?, Jun 22, 2018

    Hey everyone! I saw another thread going on getting water cleared up in a member's tank. Their problem was specifically addressed, but it gave me the idea for a good discussion (I hope). IME a lot of aquarists struggle to achieve the clarity in their water that they would like, so I thought it would be helpful to talk about different methods for keeping water polished. So, what are some of the best ways to keep water crystal clear?

  7. If you could only have 1 stick, which one would it be?, Apr 26, 2018

    If you could only have 1 stick, which one would you choose? What's your top acro choice? I know it's a tough question (and thankfully we're not limited to one), but it'll be cool to see what your favorites are. :)

    If you can't narrow it to just 1, then give top 2-3. :D

    Anyone on the #reefsquad or any of our #SPSexperts got any wisdom on grafted montis?
  11. What’s the longest amount of time it’s taken any sps to start growing in your tank?, Mar 6, 2018
  12. mdbannister

    I think most of us have had experiences like this. #SPSexperts what do you say?
  13. Frags that just never seem to grow., Feb 26, 2018
  14. mdbannister

    I've heard this too. Giving a little snip to the tip has helped quite a few overcome this issue I think. IIRC @hybridazn at one point had a millepora that wouldn't do anything but encrust, and he got it to start going vertical by doing something along these lines. Maybe some of our #SPSexperts can give a few additional tips.

    #spsexperts, #reefsquad - any thoughts on a damaged impeller / possible small amounts of corrosion affecting SPS?
