Ok tell me what u think I have a 55 g reef tank 15 g Sump reef octopus diablo skimmer uv chiller coral life aqua light pro ...tanks a year old got.100 lbs life rock for about 7 months tank would.not.grow coraline all parms were zero except nitrate 20 ppm calcium all those in good levels. A month ago I desided to get rid the bioballs and add 30 rock to Sump know I got coraline all over and Nitrates are almost nonexistent.. do u all think the nitrate factory bioballs caused.no coraline ?
