Have you tested nitrates and phosphates? And when was the last time you changed out the media in the phosban reactor? How much skimm do you get in a week? I am thinking you are having a nitrate spike or something along that line.

Um nitrates at zeroi do get a minimal reading of phosphates. Skimmer pulls out lots. Phosban reactor media gets changed monthly. Have a hard time getting calcium lvls above 340 even with heavy dosing. Corals do grow quickly still tho.
