    group of Wrasses in a 30L nuvo?

    There's typically no problem mixing multiple single male wrasses of different species with two exceptions - Pseudocheilinus and Macropharyngodon. Do not mix males of the same species together (i.e. 2 male carpenters. 1 male carpenter, 1 male mccoskers is fine.) I have successfully kept McCoskers Flasher, Carpenter's Flasher, Blue Flasher, Diamondtail Flasher, Pintail Fairy, and various Leopard wrasses together.

    Reminder to clean out your powerheads. I finally cleaned my gyres after 7 months of neglect and WOW, what a difference. I was actually contemplating adding another powerhead before since I felt like I wasn't getting enough flow. Glad I waited and cleaned instead.

    Thanks! Honestly, it just started taking off. I don't think I did anything special other than try to keep my parameters as stable as possible.

    Things have changed a little since my last update in May 2017.

    Going to say it's almost back at 100% again.

    Just wanted to report that both colonies of Katropora in my tank are on their way to recovery.

    I had a rapid increase in Po4. I did have a random spike in alk from 6.7-7.0 to 7.7. Since my 7.7 reading, I've let the alk drop down naturally back to 7.0. Truthfully, I feel like the damage is done and all I can do is keep parameters as stable as possible.

    @metrokat Additional observations - the browning seems to affecting a few select corals - both the katroporas, including the one on my rock work and the one on my frag rack have browned and has shown reduced PE. Other acros that have exhibited less PE or browning include my fox flame and a couple of unnamed pieces from my lfs. Puzzled really. I could proceed with dipping the colony and mini colony on my rack.. I dip everything in Bayer before it enters my tank and I cut away all bases from plugs.

    I did look for pests, but couldn't see any aefw bite marks. No red bugs that I could see either.

    So some bad news. My colony is the display has browned out and is no longer showing PE. Unsure as to the cause. Parameters below: dKH: 7.15 Ca: 410ppm Mg: 1400ppm (Salifert), 1100 (Elos) No3: 2.5ppm Po4: More than .16ppm, less than .32ppm (Red Sea), More than .1ppm, less than .3ppm (Salifert) Salinity: 1.026

    Yep! I got really lazy and it just kept growing. I actually like this better since it allows me to frag from the rack without having to touch the main colony in the display.
