Sugar dosing is somewhat common in Reef aquariums but that sounds like a sugar overdose. HA!
I agree with watching the PH for sure, other than that, I don't think it will cause much harm. Especially if you do a water change.
Who knows, you may discover the missing link to reefing. Keep an eye on what happens

Will do! Honestly no water change yet but everything is out and doing well... PH is at a steady 8.3 and the cloudiness has gone away! I am happy...

How has everything turned out?

Also, I got some safety latches back when mine was a toddler for cabinets. They will let the door open about 1/2 to one inch, and then catch. You have to actually press on the latch itself (which is all on the inside of the cabinet) to be able to fully open the door. You can open it pretty quickly, but it requires more coordination than most toddlers have.

Funny you sent that today because that's exactly what I bought from home Depo earlier this morning! Thanks for checking in. It's working great!

Yes sir... I know he was just doing what his daddy does and tried to feed the fish. I think a tank is a very peaceful thing for children. Our son is autistic and loves to watch the tank!

I guess my son was a born safe cracker when he was little. He blew thru those latches 20 minutes after I installed them. I had to laugh about the orange juice, especially after it was obvious it wouldn't kill everything. Why wouldn't the fish and coral like a bit of juice?

Ya. I'm laughing about it now but I was a tad bit worried for a bit. My lol fellow usually can figure things out pretty quick but I installed them on the inside so maybe I got him outsmarted for a week or so lol... Thanks for the concern fellows!

If you get some good sudden growth then we can credit you with the starting the fad of vodka & orange juice dosing. Otherwise known as pouring your tank a screwdriver. Lol.
