After a long journey after the issues i had from Jan to March, since April everything was coming back to normal, color was back, i could see signs of growth on most of my coral... until last week, my doser (kamoer, about 1.5 year old) got stock on 'On' position and dumped all Alk in my tank, AquaForest are fortunatly pretty low in concentration and the Alk container was no full, maybe 1/3 or 1/4 of the 2L was left. My alk jumped from 7.3 to 9.
Did couple of WC over the evening and night to bring it back to normal level.
Though i manage the situation, that was 4 days ago....since then... lost 5 colonies, lost color on most corals, i see STN on many corals.... things are not improving. I know that even if corals looked better and better, they were not super healthy yet... but i never though i would lose that much....
When i saw that things were improving in July, i decided to purchased the corals from the previous post... i'm pretty ****** off now.. if i lose them... i might just forget about acropora....... this hobby is painfull, with all the effort we put into it. i dont even care about the money, anyone into a hobby will eventually spend that kind of money, it's more about all the care and time we put to succeed. I have been testing almost daily for the past 6 months to be sure the transition to AquaForest was going perfectly... i managed that pretty well, i had insane result in terms of coloration. with my regular maintance, cleaning, etc... i did not expect that.
All my LPS, chalice, acans, shrooms, euphilia are doing amazing... it's just the dam Acros!!!
Honestly that might be my last update if everything goes south!
Late to the thread but I hope all is well
Enjoyed reading and learning thru ur build. Thanks for sharing.
Currently using coral pro salt but thinking of changing to Instant Ocean salt. I read that Wwc uses that and also use the Radion LEDs (which is what I have) to grow their corals beautifully.
Hope u r still around
