missed the water change last week ,but did this week also 1st week with the carbo calcium and every thing is nice and stable now ,except mag which has never been anyway ,all the corals seem to have more polyp extension and better colour as well dont know if this is down to the K and A elements i am dosing or the tank is just starting to mature more now ,time will tell

but at the present i am happy with every thing at the moment

the mag might also be that i am filling the syringe correct now

these new clarisea longer rolls are going to last a lot longer this is a weeks worth so far and really dark too so i am a happy reefer ,i think they changed the micron too

it is mate the first few rolls did not last that long as was picking up all the dirt ,now they have made this longer one with a different micron ,its much better ,they did give me one to test a few month ago and it was good ,so glad it now on the market now ,will make the clarisea much better

just as everything was going so well DISASTER

my light fell in my DT while i was at work ,my wife rang but by the time i got home she had removed it but the damage was done a yellow substance had come out the light ,which i can only think was led cement

i think all my corals will die they all have stringy **** coming off them ,and have lost 3/4 of my fish too ,the skimmer was going nuts ,i could not keep up with it ,but its under control now

put some new carbon in i will keep changing this every 2 days i think

will do water changes every day now too for a week or so ,i ordered a icp test to see what is going on even though this will take

and will be getting a polyfilter today to help

SO SO GUTTED AS EVERYTHING WAS DOING SO WELL AT THE MOMENT AND THE WIFE WANT ME TO SELL IT ALL NOW AS WELL

which i will not do , i ordered another light yesterday will be here today ,but this is going to be a very,very slow comeback ,as all my money is tied up in the house renovations till the end of the year ,which i must get done with our 1st grandchild due in December

so the fightback begins today but dont hold out much hope for the corals at all

Fingers crossed
