how are things looking? I hope it turns around.

Yeah get your magnesium up to 1300-1400, alkalinity looks fine and calcium is fine as well. Good luck!

Looks like this just might be the answer. After just one 10 mL dosing of mg, the GSP is beginning to come alive again. I suspect as the day wears on, more polyps will begin to come out. My frogspawn an mushroom look much better, too. Can't wait to see these things when the levels are actually where they are supposed to be!

Well, I seem to have found the answer. Frogspawn looks better than ever. GSP is recovering very nicely and all other corals look great. Wish I could post pics, but can't figure that out.

I strongly second this.
