uhm your coral one isnt dead, two you had the best tank i think on MR, only couple of problems here and there. i think in 3 months your tank would be banging againjackson6745 said:If it looked like mine your corals would be dead

Many of the corals in Russ's tank are specimen color but ARE NOT close to the light - the ones closer to the top are the ones lighter (even whiter in some cases) than the rest of the corals - call it a shorter photo period, call it par, whatever it is scientifically, the lights are the problem
spykes said:you got some stability issues as well then, listen oceanic IMO doesnt have the best binders out there. twice a week water doesnt age in you tank does it lol, believe it or not i think it's better not to water change so damn much, because freshly new made water is diffrent from the older water, constant change isnt the best thing i think, this is my own opinion. I do monthly water changes like JBNY etc..
I want you to come over here check my system out, grab a frag or two and i'll give you calcium and alk and mag additives. I make mine from randy's formula so it doesnt cost me much. If you like it i can always make more for you. Having constant water change IMo isnt the best thing.
