Double check with them it's rodi. It probably isoops:but not always)The tank is roughly 3 months old. I am using water straight from my lfs. It is salt water rated 1.026. I clean It but it just ends up coming back.
Is the ugly phase killing my corals though?Double check with them it's rodi. It probably isoops:but not always)
And keep doing what you're doing. The ugly phase will pass.
If you hold the brown stuff between your fingers and it's a almost dusty kinda feel. It's diatoms. Completely normal animal to have right now.
My first concern is source water quality.
My second question to trouble shoot the prob Is what light are you using?
I see only one coral that looks to be in poor health.
Just brown dust. It is getting better. I have never cleaned the rocks. Probably should.Nice pictures.
Yea that's all good. It even looks like you've got the slight green precursor to purple corraline alge coming in.
How's you're flow? I couldn't see the power heads.
Are you running chemical filterationnlike activated carbon or gfo or purigen?
How does the brown stuff look up close? Just brown dust ? How's it feel.
