He was totally shot. Had only like one leg left and was about half an inch left so I flushed him. :-(

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Oh Carey, I'm sorry to hear about all this sadness that's been going on in your big tank.
Do you have anything that could absorb the phosphate?

I used a treatment of phosbusters, its made by the same people as purple up. I figured it can't hurt, it says see results in 72 hours. If that doesnt help I will put some GFO in the sump.

I have been planning on buying a dual reactor, one for carbon one for GFO. Just haven't gotten around to it yet. lol

Have you possibly thought of temp relocating your fish?? If you can manage it I would do it. I wouldn't wanna imagine the health of your fish if after 72 hours the phosbusters doesn't work. It'll atleast save your fish

Phosphates won't affect the fish, just the coral.

OR

Nah, I'll just get a GFO reactor. I need new light bulbs as well so I will be buying the 6 whites and the reactor by tuesday. Still debating on the bulbs.

I was intending on getting 6 ATI aquablue specials as my whites. They run at about 12000k I believe. I also prefer the blue hue.

But I am open to suggestions.

I will be replacing the blues probably next month. Those are still up in the air as of now.

I'm a fan of the color the 14k's put off but that's personal preference. But 6 whites?? Wow that's not gonna be cheap. 10k's are bright as all heavens, I've never seen 12k's in person but I could only imagine. I do know the higher you go you start getting into a purplish hue
