What the boy means is have you added carbon of an appropriate amount to water volume, currently running half a cup of carbon in approx 125G water volume due to a leather letting go, maybe do a cup?

Everything I’ve read says the skimmer goes nuts if it runs during treatment. Also, I have a co2 scrubber attached to the skimmer. If I don’t run it my ph will drop to 7.5-7.77.
Is your co2 scrubber recirculating? If not, just remove the cup. Same principle as a pump, but cannot over fill and cause a mess.

Also, you can do a few hour soak and then rinse the corals off in untreated water.

I can say this, I have bought a full tank of corals from a severely neglected tank with a ton of Cyano. I just rinsed and quickly scrubbed them and plopped them in the qt tank with no issues.

Remember, it is always in every tank. It just goes nuts when it has tons of food and not much flow. New tank has flow and no excess nutrients. So it should not promote the cyano growing out of control.

Ha Ha ;) Didn’t think I should run carbon on a new tank. Didn’t have this problem on my last two tank:p:p

I have carbon..thought it would kill good bacteria too

Great minds think alike…I had my little assembly line..dip & scrub, quick rinse, final rinse and in the tank they went. These corals have gone through too much to start messing with peroxide. I didn’t move everything..started working on things that weren’t attached to rock. Not sure how to handle my trachy..he’s BIG..was about 9 inches when he went into the tub four months ago;Woot

Surprise..I’m back again :rolleyes:

Lot’s been happenin…I’ve been sick, family stuff, etc. I’ll fill in the blanks later.. I’m still not 100%, but didn’t want to leave people hanging on the tub/tank status. I’ll give it to you in pics…

Moved some of the healthy looking corals.

LFS took the large monti, and the big favia on the left..He’s going to cut for me. I gave him my limelight hydnophora..it murdered everything it could reach. other than that, this is what’s left and is now in the new tank

Lost most of the acros, palys, & zoas. Also, one of my gonipora. He found a couple pieces he thinks are still alive..I’m not convinced. My milka stylo and tyree stag have a good chance. Five of the frags are from reef-a-palooza. What started in December, exploded in February, is finally over..except for the cleanup;Dead

Migraine taking over, so I’m off. I hope everyone is well..miss you all!!! Hopefully, I’ll be able on tomorrow.
