I havent added anything. The last addition was the Pink Spot which I had for about 5 weeks before he died.

Been about a month since my fish died. I've done several water changes. Wondering if  it may be safe to add a fish?

Tank looks great!

 

I'd wait at least 8 weeks.  I just went through the same thing myself

Tomorrow my tank will be 7 months old so I thought I better get an updated pic.

Thanks Mark! 

 

Everything has been growing real well. Sps are doing great. First coral I added in a long time was a birdsnest I got yesterday. All my numbers are staying consistant.

The new birdsnest I added doesn't seem happy with my lighting. Guy I got it from said preferred low light.

I have it about mid level in my tank. I lowered my lights by 5%w,10%b,10%th and 10%uv. 

Will lowering the intensity effect my other sps?

It's certainly possible.  HarryPotter's rough guideline is - if corals get dark, add 5% - if they get pale, take off 5% (waiting a minimum of a month between changes).  If your birdsnest starts looking better and your other SPS start getting darker, you might want to slowly increase your lighting and relocate the birdsnest.

What kind of bird.  Based on the screnshot above I can't imagine it wanting lower light, I would look to flow or Alk stability first, double check all params just to be sure nothing snuck up on you.

 

The big pink bird growing in my 40, I put a large branch in my 150 on the birdsnest pile I have and it took almost a month before it looked happy, now showing good growth finally.  Sometimes they just like to sulk for a while.

I put my light back to what they were, he's looking better today anyways, starting to color back up a little bit.
