3 polyps. Iíve had a few issues come up this month but I think things are back on track.

Salinity creeped up to 1.028 (Added too much mag, ATO failed as well)
Alk fluctuations between 9.5-10.8. (Due to salinity change)
Overdosed Bioclean (didnít need to clean algae off the glass for a week)
Trace element supplementation has been questionable
Experimented with not doing water changes for a few months
Added a Skimz macroalgae reactor
