A very informative thread. The results are amazing.
You followed the newt method and everything was fine, which caused you to restart the system, what went wrong?
And I noticed that you have enough coarse sand in your display, why was it washed away in one pile? There was no desire to add .... Perhaps a very strong flow, is it so conceived?
What are the parameters now - phosphate, nitrate, KN, pH in the system?

Thank you so much for reading :)

I had some problems with zero water changes... very dirty sump and VERY low nutrients, also I had an aiptasia boommm so I decided to re-do everything.

Sand is like this because I have very strong flow.

Po4 - ~0.03
No3 - 4-8ppm
KH - 8.2
pH - 8.2-8.3

Thanks for the answer.
Your parameters are good, I understand about the sand.
Aptasias get into our tanks with the help of frags of new corals and not only ... there is no recipe for this.
I keep a fish for this purpose (Copper Stripe Butterfly Fish) - Chelmon rostratu she does an excellent job
Of course it is difficult to feed her ....... but with your choice of feed, I think it will be good.
