Yea he seems good but am I right in letting my new sump cycle for a couple weeks before adding it to my system? Or is it ok to add right away? It's only 29gl prob around 15-20 gl of actual water in it

IMO if the sump isn't adding any new biological load, there is no reason for a cycle. As long as you match the new sump water with the existing tank water, in ph, temp, salinity, you can open the system slowly and let the waters mix.

Ok so the coral has been doing great until yesterday it would not open during the day check all my parameters are good...0,0,0 8.2, 1.024. I had a fish pass about three or four days ago and had my lfs check my water and they said it was all good so I'm pretty sure my test kits are reading good. I forgot to take a picture before work but it just pretty much puts its tentacles away and doesnt stretch out...also at night it's tentacles come out and it did eat last night. Any help would be great thanks!

So I found a rubberband and in my tank removed it last night and the coral is open and back to normal. Could this really be something that caused my coral closing and possibly my fish dying?
