By the looks of the algae your phosphates and nitrates are probably higher than they are testing. Are you running any media? I agree with the 50% wc and pulling as much of the algae as you can

I did a big change on Monday. Also cleaned skimmer and skimmer socks. Have done another change tonight. Do you think I should scrub the rocks? The tank is only 4 months old so could this be the ugly stage?

Could you tell us what your phosphates at? Asked this question 2 times already...

I wouldn't worry too much I got a rock covered in zoos and they stayed closed up for ages but recently almost all of them opened up. Oddly enough I had a fair bit of hair algae growing around them so pulled it off. I would imagine it will be your parameters in some way but they should be ok eventually. Mine were closed for months, I didn't think they would open up at all!

I don't have a phos test kit as yet. The reason I bought these is because they are bullet proof. I wouldent buy a coral which needed excellent prams. Nitrates are 15/20 nitrite 0 ammonia 0 ph is 8.0.

Not bullet proof, barely. They are still sensitive to nitrate and phosphate as are all corals.

Nice one bayern, thanks. They still look plump and when the blues go on they illuminate blue, so I know that there still alive.
