what is the danger of cutting them from underneath if they're a flat surface?
i have a billion lbs of it if you need some sooner than later.

check alk swings, tell us about your dosing plan?

Black sand
The high alk probably did it. I personally don't like to go above 9 but others will run higher. At the high 11s you had most likely caused the burn.  I have read where it can be up to two weeks before you can see the effects of an event.  Be careful of the water changes at this point, many salts have high alk which wouldn't help your issue.  Sounds crazy but you can add muratic acid too lower your alk.
Test equipment - Good
Alk test kit checks with in reason to another test kit.
Temp 78-79.5 F
SG goal is 1.025. SG increases slowly because of the dosing. Plan on doing a 20% change today. Alk goal is 9-10 dKh. Here are the alk test results.
