Things are starting to look a bit better.. I did a 25% PWC last night and it's crystal clear again. It seems to be a very slow process to get my softies to open up again, but I suppose that's expected. My hammer is literally opening 1 polyp at a time. Slow slow slow. I'm going to do a 50% PWC this weekend. Sadly my cyphastria is entirely bleached. I imagine it's a goner...

What kind of carbon? Seachem's Matrix Carbon gave me results in days when I was doing my cycle and was loading the system to the max, and it kept working for a couple of weeks.

I'd run it for at least a week. Unfortunately, you can't tell if it's run it's life until things start shifting again...

Still trying to figure out if it was salt, or something else. But not getting anywhere with it. Just going to cut it up to it was what it was, and move forward to fix it. I did another 40% change today, and also sucked up all the buildup on my sand bed which appears to not be hair algae as originally thought, but cyano. I blew off my rocks and well. Tank looks pristine. I switched the carbon, as well as added a media bag of GFO. I also was looking at my hammer coral, and it seemed to be bleaching out, but coming back to life a bit. I also realized that the heads that were shaded by other heads were a lot lore vibrant in terms of color, and not bleaching out. I took this as a sign that my lights are too strong, and notched them down about 10%. Sheesh I hope all this helps...

IMO you're on the right track.
