I have a 350 mag that runs Carb
If not cleaned/changed very often, it will trap food and detritus, causing a rise in NO3
is only effective for about 7 days. After that it serves no purpose, only causes NO3
issues. Have you checked your source water for NO3
? Maybe it's coming in w/ the PWC
's. As Marc and Ziggy said, lights need to be replaced if they are a year + old. Also, keep temp stable. The most you want to see in a day is ~2 degree change, preferably less.
Star Polyp still has not opened. Now my mushroom has not opened in a few days either.
The water changes may be causing this. If your not matching up temp, PH, SG
, and preferably Ca
, exactly or close to it as possible, it will stress corals. Especially when doing larger and/or more frequent PWC
