dang heart wrenching’So...my protein skimmer was over skimming so i made a minor adjustment.
Went back to work ....from home on MS Teams/Zoom calls.
4 hours later i checked on the tank and 150gal eater gone.
Skimmer went crazy.
I started mixing new saltwater.
Added 100g of new water.
By now it was midnight. I added the lady batch of water.
Next morning i woke up to find everything dead.
Check and my salt level was 42ppm.
I typically maintain 34ppm.
I basically turned my tank into the dead sea.
I figured the salt was not fully dissolved before i added the new water to the tank.
Normally i mix my salt water 48hrs to do a water change but this was an emergency response.
Very, very costly mistake.
Not to mention some of these fishes and corals for over 10 years.
Needless to say i could not stop crying for 2 days.
