    So I went to my lfs and I got some carbon they tested my water and said it was fine I got carbon and a poly filter that removes toxIns and they said do a 50% water change so I’ll keep you guys updated ?

    Thanks what carbon do you recommend and how much of a water change should I use chemi pure ? Also I took out those pumps last night and made fresh water tested at 0 tds an added reef crystals at 1.023 I don’t have much corals in my tank either my pulsing Xenia has also died an my brain coral hasn’t opened up and my clam looks like it’s dying also I made enough for a 50% water change

    LPS hammer coral died what’s the next step ?

    I tested my alk and it 8.6 dkh that was right around where I had it in the first place I’m using instant ocean reef crystals and I lowered my salinity to 1.023. Because I had it at 1.025 a few weeks ago and my lfs said I had to lower it because my coral wouldn’t be able to absorb calcium at 1.025 because it was 420 and my alk was 8 using reef crystal . My tank is still fairly new 3 months

    I will test my water when I get home . What could of been wrong with my water I tested it and it had 0 tds and I mixed my salt as usual but I’ll kee trouble shooting I also noticed my brain coral closed before the water change but everything was fine
  10. So my hammer coral just died it was doing fine for about 2 weeks and then it just melted away after doing a 30% percent water change and adding new pumps that I bought on amazon . My guess is the flow was to strong for it but other coral aren’t looking to good such as my Xenia , and brain coral haven’t opened up I’m going to put the old pumps back in and do an other water change it has now been 5 days since my last water change any suggestions

    My water source is tap water but it goes through my rodi system and I always test it an it’s reads 0ppm and i use my rodi water within 24 hours when I mix my salt and it’s in brute trash cans

    Yes I was concerned about my phosphates being high . They where .013ppm and 0.17 I got 2 reading from my Hanna test kit also I use RODI with reef crystals and I have 4 hermits and a nassarius snail they are very tiny tho It happend over night it’s all over my sand and rock it’s a mix of light green and brown
