    Removed chemipure and phosphate guard and stopped the skimmer for a while to get nutrients build up

    Where there is one there is many. Have any wrasse in the tank that will eat those? May want to invest... My suggestions green coris, lightning wrasse, dusky/greyhead wrasse, pink striated wrasse.

    On a side note why would my zoas Ballon out? Most are closed and some are ballooning. Can't figure out why..

    Are they brown. Check for ph swings and ammonia.
    Yup. Maybe bugs but the nutrients are quite low.

    Not brown, I actually removed my issue. I moved my colony in front of a surface skimmer outflow and spot fed. They opened right up.
