Advice needed please

Since I had to tear my tank apart to retrieve dead fish (cause still unknown) my tank has struggled. My LPS haven't looked great and I've had a diatom bloom, which I assume is from pulling everything apart. I have a small torch coral frag that had three heads and one has died off. My lobo has now started to bleach although a very small amount. I plan to dip the LPS is coral dip today.

My parameters are as follows
Calcium: 430
Alk: 8
Mag: 1300
SG: 1.025
Temp: 78.5

Thanks in advance

check your phosphate levels lps don't like high amounts of phosphates
I lost all my lps to it I learned to monitor 2 x a week
since you tore your tank apart you disturbed the sand bed
I would suggest bigger water changes till you start to see improvement

430 calcium is a KH of 9.8 to be in balance so they are out of balance

Mag could ideally be at 1350

Also an SG of 1.026 would be better


What's your
Nitrate
Phosphate
Nitrite
Ammonia

When you have any issues run a full set of tests helps to build a better picture.

I agree; check your levels. Perform more frequent, and larger water changes until you see improvements.

Nitrate, phosphate and ammonia are all zero. Phos is on a salifert kit, I know they are not that accurate/reliable

I would add some activated carbon and do some water changing there is something in there that's causing an issue
