Yes much better! Thanks.
All the wc I did last week really helped.
However I realized this morning I have no idea how to care for the goniopora
.... Eats meaty foods needs moderate light moderate flow. Uses calcium and KH from the water. Sensitive to the nasty levels. Blah. But I don't really know how to care for it.

Basically be seen one row from the bottom edge begin to bleach and turn into a chunk of calcium carbonate.

I'd like to stop this and LEARN what this guy really likes.

Anybody who can help. I'll give you whatever info you need from me

Any help would be greatly appreciated
I'm trying to be as humble as possible this thing is beautiful and I don't want to see it die in my care

Algae is snacking on the nitrates
Hermit crabs are snacking on the algae
Haha
I bought another bottle of tigger pods.
Added about 75% of it to the tank
Going to do this twice a month until my tank is overrun by bugs
^^^^ the seriatopora is showing new growth despite the nitrate battle
Small horns or branches are popping up on the current branches.
At first I thought it was bleaching
But they're actually starting to grow out a bit now!!!

Officially 7 months old tommorrow... I think

All the rocks that came from the beach.
Have te same coating but it's green coralline! Not to be confused with te algae on the back glass
The coralline on the rocks has streaks of orange and definitely won't brush off
I tried to be sure

Salt mixing station finally setup.
29 gallon brute
Pump is a 1 hr on 1 off all day to keep things nice and mixed
Powerhead had a hose attached that basically turns it into a fountain to keep the water aerated as well
Just got the temp probe

Also bought a 2.5 to get some pod breeding done
Never tried it yet but I figure I'll give it a go Click image for larger version
