    Saturday update

    10% water change complete
    Removed Phosminus
    Left Carbon in
    PH 7.74 (it drops as the lights have gone down)
    Alk 8.6
    N03 1.5ppm
    P04 0

    Rocks are looking fuzzy, but I’m going to trust the process.

    Hold it right there just get that Alk a little low. Wait for few days without dosing any NP Pro and Pro bio s.

    Mag 1380

    It’s looking better. I did notice I didn’t have to clean the glass today as there was no film on it.

    One of my acros, a fox flame, is getting whiter all other corals look fine.

    Wednesday update

    Ph 7.86
    Alk 8.3
    N03 1.5 ish
    P04 o

    Something concerning happened today. My Naso Tang is no where to be found. Didn’t jump no sign of a body anywhere in the tank. I would’ve thought if he would’ve died and the cuc got him I would’ve had higher N04 or P04. So weird.

    Did notice more brownish algae when I got home from work.

    Any ideas?

    How big it was? Its weird that it just disappeared or the clean up crew cleaned it up overnight. Keep looking for it. We dont want it to die in there. No change as far dosing goes.

    He looks sick....I am not a fish expert but he doesn't look good. He is stressed. Ask in fish disease forum.

    Thursday update

    Ph 7.83
    Alk 8.1
    Cal 444
    N04 1.5
    P04 .01ppm

    Dosed 3 drops of Coral B tonight. I haven’t dosed N04 in two days and it’s staying stable at 1.5. Again darker than 1 but lighter than 2.

    Alk is dropping.

    When would I star dosing 123?

    Seems like we are on the right track.
