    I looked up the meter and O2 is not a measurement of O2 but is a calculated theoretical maximum and not a measurement of O2.
    Quote from the mfg site:
    "The value shown on the seneye is the maximum theoretical level of dissolved oxygen in your tank, based on your other values that seneye measures. Therefore, it is a guide that can be used to show how the other parameters effect the maximum possible level in your water. We do not advertise the device to able to measure dissolved oxygen levels, but rather say that it is capable of calculating dissolved oxygen potential. A device that measures the true oxygen level in the water will report differently due to in measuring the actual amount as opposed to the theoretical maximum."

    Yup, I guess I posted late. I suspect your DSB is removing O2 or releasing something that is irritating the corals, or there is something else being release perhaps from soft coral eradication? Poly filter, water change, clean the DSB, all a wild guess.

    I don't recall where zinc contamination comes from, but someone will chime in #reefsquad

    I lurked R2R for over a year before I signed up. I also lurked the other reef-centric sites. I chose to sign up at R2R because of the low-drama, clean and friendly atmosphere here. You and your team have done an outstanding job of curbing the nasty, rude, and sometimes cruel mentalities that all the other sites seem to tolerate.

    In the past week, I've seen an uptake in the aforementioned drama spill into the general membership's view. I've also seen you, and your team attempt to deal with it calmly, tactfully, and with as much grace as possible.

    I've also witnessed the backlash of what happens when a thread is locked, heavily moderated and even deleted.

    Let me be clear, and get to the point of my thread: You were in the right. You did what you had to do to maintain the value and substance of this forum that stands above the rest. Please dont stop.

    This place is not a democracy. It is not a place where people enjoy the right to question every decision of leadership. It is a place where people can come and feel comfortable asking questions and help others without the fear of being slammed for not knowing the exact composition of molecules in a single strand of GHA.

    This is not a corporation. Theres not an employee base here. 99% of the main players are volunteers. No realistically inclined person expects all #reefsquad replies to be 100% accurate all the time. Nor do they expect yours, or your staff members hard decisions to be popular to 100% of R2R members.

    There is a small group of people that are attempting to start a riot. They've hidden behind initial phrases that put them in a "I'm the victim, no disrespect meant" role, then they tear your staff to shreds, claiming to do so for the love of R2R.

    As a normal member, I'm tired of seeing these threads in the active thread list. I'm tired of reading pages and pages of bickering, and veiled insults. This is not the R2R I signed up for, and I'm sure you know it.

    Please know that you and your entire team have more support than you know. Unfortunately, some people are determined to incite chaos are simply louder than the rest. It's always like that, everywhere, all over the world.

    Dont dismay. This is your house. Dont hesitate to fight for it.

    So I beg you: Lock the threads, ban the IPs, delete the posts, unleash the dogs of war because they are attempting to ruin your site. Dont let the quiet majority down and stomp this fire out before it burns too hot. Get some.

    Im by far a sps expert but I'll lend a hand where I can. We will also tag the #reefsquad to get some assistance.

    For starters Can you post a photo of your tank?

    Also please give us all the water parameters that you know, Ca, kh, mg, po4, no3. If you test for others please give those too. At least this will get us started.
