Ah, that will do it. The whole system is needed so you're getting that instability.

Not to mention, there are zero trace in the alkalinity solution, and only iodine/iodide in the mag solution. The magic is literally 100% in the calcium solution.

It'll stable out

I hope so @RichtheReefer21 ! ! !

And I hope @Scurvy makes it as well ! ! !

Now for bad news....

Was looking at the tank after the lights went out last night with a flashlight and I saw 1 of the peppermints picking at my Hammer and 2 at the original Frogspawn ! ! ! I was POed ! ! ! I got out my long turkey baster and blasted them away ! ! !

Looks like I got to figure out some sort of a trap for them and catch those little bastar**** ! ! !

@Crabby48 I started a new thing recently as I had too many different things. So, I slacked (defrosted in the fridge) spirulina brine shrimp, mysis, LRS reef frenzy and LRS herbivore frenzy, mixed them and refroze it. Fish and corals seem to really like the combo. I really want to start making my own but really need to figure out what to get and where to get it.

I’m always looking to mix it up more for my fish. Now I feed lrs reef frenzy, Hikari mysis and fresh clam alternating days. Not sure what frozen brine shrimp has to offer for nutrition so haven’t bothered. Although I have feed live brine a few times. I will have to research more I guess

Oh yes. Little bastas they are once they get a taste of LPS. I won't keep them anymore because of this.

Those things are Devils in disguise :mad: I had them years ago and they didn’t seem to bother anything but I recently put a couple in my Biocube and they constantly picked on and aggravated everything! I didn’t have any trouble catching them, just throw some food in and net them when they go for it.
