Please keep us updated on your progress. I'm a big believer in the basics, though I'm assuming you'll still be dosing the basics: calcium, alkalinity and magnesium. Slightly washed out colors or not, you have a beautiful tank.

Maybe just cut your carbon/GFO in half?

I was thinking of maybe cutting GFO in half, Carbon is already cut off. But, I want to see if my tank stays at proper levels with out GFO.

I suspect you'll miss the water clarity & return to carbon.

You might be right, but i need to see if its the problem might end up running half the amount. I need to cut it off to see then i will decide. I have been running carbon for years and cant remember what it looked like before lol

I think it's high nutrients. No coral food is necessary. Whatever you feed the fish is plenty. If you change the bulbs out, be sure to acclimate the corals in some way.
