Sorry i didnt update sooner, but i didnt have any major losses None of my corals are very happy right now, bleached candy, and frogspawn and my shooms arent opening. But i hope that they get better. I have a few more empty snail and dwarf hermit shells than i did, but that is to be expected. I didnt feed the tank till after i got home and I did a 15gal+ water change and kept the lights off for a while on my main tank. I did a 35% water cahnge on the QT. I lost 1 molly and my sons goldfish didnt make it Oh well.

Tested my water last night (FYI I started using IO a week ago).

Temp 82F
Amonia-----0
PH---------8.2
Nitrite-------0
Nitrate-----15
Alk---------12.5Dkh
Cal---------350

I added 20cc of B-Ionic Ca. last night after testing.

When trying to correct an imbalance of that nature, it is important to know the Mg level. If it is low, you can add all the CA you want and it wont raise it much higher than it is.
