    Hello

    I got a triton test done and the results are attached.
    I still have a lot of trouble with STN on my Acros...

    Do any of the water parameters show reasons for STN?
    Most parameters show up with a green light but maybe there is something...

    Colors are good; growth is slow but noticeable (on Acros)

    Quick tank stats:
    Volume: 125 Gallons
    Light: 280W Maxspect R420R
    Flow: ~60x flow with 2x Jebao RW-15
    Salt: Aqua forest Reef Salt
    Dosing: FM Balling Light

    IMO good vertical growth but the base dies off

    Just an example acro... about 10 more acros that have/had the same issue

    I don't see anything in that report that should cause STN of SPS corals.
