Hey
I’ve got a Waterbox 180
Running for over a year. I’ve had these SPS Frags and no issue. I’ve noticed brown tips !
Alk is consistent at 9dkh
Cal 435
Mag 1400

sal 1.026
P04 0.04
NO3 5.1

im running 2 XR30 gen 4,1- XR 15 and a couple Reef rite XHO

the lights I run for 11 hours and max out at 80 % Par hits around 430 at the top

my question is why is it turning brown the tips and will they survive ?

Also you ask will they survive,
1) Did you use any live rock
2) Tank is still kinda young
3)If they dont survive or just a couple , i would lower alk to 7,slowly
4)This is what I would think but im no pro
5)Sps are funny especially in a newer tank
6)This is my experience over the 2 tanks I had
