Just make sure the salinity and temp is good.

My salinity is fine right now, but I’ll have to double check later when I add more water. Temp is also fine

Exactly the same with my cheap POS, I have to keep taking out floss until I dont have water coming out of the intake area. 

I made sure to change the filter floss in my sump before I went on my trip. Otherwise I've been sticking to changing the floss twice a week like I've been told to do. Surprisingly that stuff does get clogged if I dont and the skimmer overflows.

Yeah I noticed with this waterbox the level rises until I change the floss. It's a good reminder to change.

So I think that I fixed everything. So much water was lost that I pretty much made a 50% water change, so that should probably make my tank happy. Everything is fine, nothing died. Cleaned the filter, put in new filter floss. Cleaned the tank, everything looks good as of right now, but I’ll have to check back in the morning

Everything is great this morning, no more water loss, corals look really good too. They probably appreciated the big water change. I’ll get some pictures later tonight.

Picture time!! I do apologize, but I do have a little bit of green film algae on my sand. 

Also, the color on my scoly is really starting to show better. You can see the pinkish lines better.

Both of my nems have also recently decided to color up quite a bit. They look better.

Yes they have, they both have been through rough times, but I think all my hard work has finally paid off

And here’s a picture of those blue things that you all thought were star polyps. Some of them seemed to die off, but some of them stayed

It’s hard to get a good picture of those bc of the angle

Also, my gsp is growing quite a bit, but it’s closed up right now. It literally just closed up. As I was taking pictures😂
