    Almost crashed my tank! Forgot to topofff the dosing containers for not sure how long. My mind was on other places so that aspect of my maintainence just slipped right by me. Alk dropped to 7. Refilled my dosing containers withen 4 days it jumped to 10. So im fumbling a VERY big problem right now with alk so wish me luck. Just going to take days of testing to get everything back to normal. Anyways, im back! Enjoy!

    Sorry to hear about the situation with the lady. Don’t let it mess with your tank! Hopefully the corals don’t miss a beat. Good luck

    Haha oh no, prioritys come first for me! because its the less frequent part of my routine, i completely forgot to top off my 2 part. I cant even tell you how long its been that way, but i assume it was about a week or so. I now have 4,000 ml containers instead of 1500 so it should last a good while.

    Its crazy because this one mishap, tossed everything out of wack. I had to cut my dosing in half to keep things stable now. Its going to take about a month of daily testing to get back on my feet. No casualtys YET just some stn on 2 pieces that are shaded from growth anyway.

    Very sorry to hear this man! Very similar thing happened to me in my early 20’s. May not seem like it now but it will all work out either way. Let me know if you need anything man.

    Its too much its way way to much. Sorta jumped ship over the fact everythings fighting and theres litterally nothing i can do. Been fragging all the acros recently, a small handfull still wont grow lol. My scape is cemented down, stuff is just randomly poping up all over my rockwork. Going to be a nightmare 6 months down the road. But i did buy a few tanks to hoard for the hobby, just waiting till im not busy to get them going
