Long story short...I switched from a 125 gallon to a 100 3 months ago. All of my 85 lbs of LR
had great coraline growth after going from 80 watts of regular FO
to 660 watts of VHO
. Once I switched tanks, all of my rock starting losing its color. Now I have 175 lbs of LR
/base rock. Also I added another 220 watts of light and still nothing to speak of with regards to coraline. My leves are good....PH
8-8.2, 0 trates,trites, ammonia, AK 2.5-3, CA
380...in the prev tank I NEVER dosed with anything. Now Im adding CA
Whats weird is the underside of all of my rocks that are not exposed to the lighting directly is still pink/purple. When I turn them then they lose their color.
Lastly I did notice my RO
filters were badly in need of changing. I changed them and did one water change and have noticed some red spots on the back wall of the tank...could this be it? Why would the undersides of the rock not be effected though?
