Thanks @Reefer4funIt may be the light. I have a 20 gal tank that had a viparspectra on it. I tweaked it using a par meter to avoid burning anything. Still, corals were fading away, only minuscule traces of coraline here and there. After an icp test showing that the water was fine, I replaced the light with two AI primes. Problem solved. Even dead frags of cyphastrea that appeared to have died are coming back to life.
Have 2 XR15's G4 on AB+ schedule @ about 50%
1-hr ramp up starting at 11:30am and an 1-hr ramp down starting at 8:30pm
I haven't fussed with the lights since they were flipped on and everything was fine for months!
Now, What I haven't done is a PAR mapping....since I'm looking at switching over to new lights towards the end of the year!
Thanks @Hincapiej4If you haven't had coraline growing, it's time to really look at your parameters closely. The fact that your nemmies and clams are mad at you they are telling you something. It might be time to test a couple times a day for a few days to see what your trends look like.
Have a Trident and also have a few Hanna checkers!
Check Po4 and No3 weekly since I started noticing the problem!
My encrusting corals frags that I picked up @ RAP Orlando are not "encrusting" and are bleaching.
No coral seems happy except the Zoas, they are open but no significant growth!
Don't know what else to look for.
I will send off for another ICP test at the end of the month and switch back to the salt I started with!
