    I don't worry about the numbers in and of themselves. Only the visual symptoms which right now is the cyano in the sump. This tells me my nitrates are too low and it will start showing up in my DT if I don't get them raised a little bit. If my PO4 gets low I start seeing Dino's in my sump. Thankfully, I haven't seen those in awhile.

    @Battlecorals there it is. Proof my foxface is an sps killer :eek: . Now even all my Millis are showing less polyp extensive. He doesn’t cause much damage but I’m afraid if I keep him, he will continue to get worse as he is larger.

    How long did you sit there with the camera out waiting for him to do it?

    Lol, I was thinking the same thing! Hiding around the corner waiting for the perfect shot, then jumps out and gets him in the act!

    Hey Brew12, this is what my Lemon Hammer looks like today, I feel I need to get no3 up a bit as I'm sitting at 0. I do have good pe but coloration is struggling a bit.

    Hahaha!! Only sat in the same place for a few days. But in all reality I was fairly lucky and was taking a picture of a frag until I see him chomping on the Monti.
