We just restarted this bad boy. Definitely going to go slower this time around. Lost lots of corals and had the regular BioCube32 hood lights. Upgraded to the RedSea90 and will be going slowly adding folks to the community...

Up until recently was using highly concentrated 2 part with a less than reliable doser...getting lazy on testing allowed some "perfect storm" conditions to develop and a few months later the reef is still in recovery mode but improving steadily....ALL of my coraline bleached/died and fell off in giant crumbly sheets. Nightmare. Corals super unhappy. Huge bubble algae outbreak. Huge asterina outbreak. All at the same time. Spent weeks picking, siphoning, testing and chasing bubble clusters. Many of my inverts died, with several of the snails literally jumping ship, crawling out of the tank and carpet diving. Not just ceriths - nassarius and trochus too. The astrea stayed in the tank but all but a few keeled over. Strangest thing I've experienced with my tank thus far. Pulled everything offline and am currently dosing everything manually. Seems to be a better solution for me for now, and my tank is only 60 gallons.
