Yea it must have been related to that, I’m going back to my old trusted refractometer now. Trying to maintain an sps tank through proxy can be a bit difficult especially when trying to diagnose issues with the tank.Man I have seen refractometers cause tank crashes for so many people, experienced or not, more so experienced, because we get used to our routine. Most of the time it ends up being because the glass on the unit goes bad. Do you think that’s what happened to your digital? I do know they are much more delicate too. Since noticing so many friends have crashes like that I have always had a digital which I trust the most but also keep a top notch standard refractometer and always keep my fluid updated. I check against the two almost every other use to avoid any errors.
Thanks for sharing what happened, it’s a tough thing to realize when it ends up being something simple like that I am sure. Hopefully others will double check their results against another kind of equipment now and maybe someone will avoid a potential crash like this. Keep the superb pics coming!
On the other hand my anemones have been better than ever,I think I have over 15 Chicago Sunbursts now!
