Well yesterday I had the chance for someone to bring me a Green Killing Machine UV from about 200 miles away hooked it up last night and water is crystal clear this morning. Still a small smell but not as bad. Now hopefully things can repair them selves. I lost two corals and bubble tip from this. I will be ordering a better Uv from BRS but in a pinch the green killing machine seems to be helping.

Tank looks a lot better! I think everyone should have a UV on hand for times like this

Congrats ! I find it hard to go back to not using a UV after using it , it’s just so many benefits
