I turned my skimmer back on day 4. Honestly I didn't see a significant change early on and the biggest jump was over this weekend. From what I have read it can take 10-14 days to start to see any changes.

Hope it works for you.
I’m hoping it’ll work too but just in case just ordered a bottle of vibrant this weekend. Thanks.

I have Vibrant also. Unfortunately it did not work for me. I was told that if parameters are above a certain level it will not work.

I would recommend giving it, Reef Flux, the full run and do the water change before trying another option. I am not sure what running both will do to a system.

I would just recommend being patient and going the full three weeks. Also keep in mind it could take more than one does of Reef Flux.

It took a while to get to where you are, and where I was, it could take a while to fix.

Did you perform water changes per usual during the treatment?
Directions state to wait 3 weeks and do a 30% water change. I started treatment on a 10 gallon tank on 4/8 for Briopsis. The Briopsis has melted away within maybe 3-4 days. Waiting on treating my other tank as I'm battling dinos in that one and need to run carbon.

Sorry for the slow response. I did not perform water changes as usual. If I remember correctly I waited 3 weeks and then performed a 30% water change.

Did you have any issues with your coral, specifically SPS? I noticed you have some RTN or bleaching on the birdnest....was that like that prior to dosing or is it a result of the dosing?

I believe it was occurring before hand. However I can not say for 100% sure.

Would you consider your tank to be balanced or lopsided when it comes to coral?
