Sorry to hear, instead of dosing try to a water change maybe?? I swear by them. 10% weekly minimum. I'll do a 25% once a month to just kinda help a bit more, but it has always helped me. Hope it helps

The weekly 10 and did some 20 to try to work on the alk that way and didn't do the trick unfortunately.

Love Red Sea pro salt. Mixes fast. Not an overnight mix salt. In fact directions say not to mix more than 4 hours.

Yeah. That was really nice and mixed up great. It just so happened that I need to remove algae from the top of a rock near my pocilopora. It's one of the macros that came out after awhile, but this one started smothering and I try to keep it trimmed. So while I did that I did another water change.

Ok. The cobalt resins only last 15 days. Not worth the investment. But talking about good investments, should I get a blue spotted jawfish?

A beautiful tank I passed on. It was a rough decision, but I will find another when I'm ready. The 36 is still sitting with rock, sand, and water in it a year after decommission. Gross...but I made the mess just haven't cleaned it up. I don't want to break the giant rock in it either. I want to use it to cover the future overflow. Now back to dreaming of tanks and jawfish.
