    Hi!

    I recently started using Triton in one of my frag tanks. I started dosing Triton 1 week ago at 20ml a day. Its a mixed frag tank and total water volume is around 220gallons. Recent ICP test showed PO4 was a bit high so I'm running GFO to reduce it now. Otherwise, the other elements are all okay.

    One issue I'm seeing is that the LPS seem a bit stressed from this? My scolys and acans look pretty beat up. I was wondering if this was normal during the transition phase?

    Thank you!

    No, not normally, what is your NO3 currently? They may benefit from a bit of additional target feeding.

    As an aside, when BRS successfully transition their BRS160 from KZ -> Triton, they mentioned their LPS rather than SPS seemed to be most stressed. Mentioned in their recent "Is Triton ULM" video

    Hi Tim!

    NO3 is around 10 now I using Salifert test kit. Should I increase it? My PO4 was at .28 so it was a bit high but I'm working on lowering it already. What else should I be looking to do?

    Yes, I have been target feeding starting this week. Im really hoping it helps because I really do not want to lose these corals.

    If it helps, I switched from dosing kalk to triton. Ive also noticed some clove polyps that look a bit stressed?
