So did you ever put another ammonia source in your tank or just the bio spira and sand?

New to salt

That's a lot of livestock for a couple weeks after the cycle.

I'd keep an eye on your parameters after adding so much at once. That can easily overwhelm the beneficial bacteria you built up in your cycle. There is evidence of stress by looking at your brain coral there, though color is still there it isn't inflating and you see the skeleton. If you start seeing ammonia or nitrites, do water changes to bring the levels to 0.

Well thank god! Those would be coral in pretty bad shape if they were real...but doesn't change the fact that you need to watch your parameters for a swing. You have to go slow in this hobby or you can set yourself up for failure.
