Continuing to have challenges and major setbacks with SPS. Most of the softies and LPS are looking better. Some great, most ok and some poor. Dinoís have been gone for about 2 weeks. Starting to see a bit of coraline growth here and there in system which is promising. No coral growth though. Alk & Ca consumption is only at 38ml per day; should be at at least 300.  alk, ca, mag, po4 and no3 is very stable due to almost no uptake. Keeping each parameter the same level as they were in previous system. From a testing perspective things have been on point. Must be alot of biological type stuff going on affecting things that arenít able to be identified from a chemistry set. System has been running for 4 months. I actually thought it was going to be easy using all the live rock from previous system that I have had in use for past 10 years. I thought I had coral growing figured out and Mother Nature said I donít know shit. Lol   I shipped out a Triton test today. Anxious to see what comes back.

Thatís really stinks! We have all been through mystery issues before and itís very frustrating.  I read a post recently where a guy claimed his egg crate was leaching po4 into his system but you mentioned your po4 was fine. You probably already are already but I double down on the gac.

Yes, Mother Nature can be cruel. I stumbled across a thread on R2R about a guy that just started using a CO2 scrubber and is having tip sloughing and losing colonies. I feel for the poor guy. Been there and had to completely redo the mine.

Sorry you're having issues, Brian

This hobby is truly humbling.   It really shows just how little we know about these little ecosystems we are creating!

It is very humbling. I wish the triton test would come back. So many things going through my mind as to what could be the cause but it would be nice to eliminate chemistry issues.

With exception of sps, coral are improving and I am ready to open back up. I would this Saturday but I have some yard work I want to get done before the leaves come out. About 20 trees to cut down and a bunch of brush to remove. Taking the day off work tomorrow and Dustin is coming over tommorow to help.

Jeff I have been using a lot of GAC. It will definitely double down on it
