Do you have any fish or invertebrates? If so, how are they doing?

If you have an autodoser, is there anything it is dosing that would not show up on your tests and could cause problems if it overdosed something?

I have fish no invertebrates, all fish seem to be thriving they seem happy to me, no auto doser, I’m only dosing Red Sea no pox and brightwell aminos by following directions on the bottles

You do have quite the mix of corals in there. Because of that, I would strongly suggest that you use carbon 24/7/365 to help remove the turpines that the soft corals release in the never ending war against the stonys. Effective skimming will help tremendously as well.

I put some carbon in but it’s not good carbon it’s the pellets will that still work?

Pretty much any is better than none. My go-to is the 5g buckets from BRS. It'll last pretty much forever and you 'll always have it to use. I'd change it out about monthly, perhaps more often at first.
