Not a good week it seems. I mixed things up and started the water change...come back from getting the dog from the groomer and I've precipitated calcium into the display. Over all, only on the one mp40 and on the marshall island latana, which isn't very happy. Waiting on the wife to show up from the store with more water to mix up another batch to do things in a smart manner.

The clam didn't make it. Too long of a struggle. Stopped closing up today so it is gone from the tank. Maintenance continues. All of the frags I got? All dead and gone too. Pretty frustrating day overall.

Thanks. Sure has been an awful downward spiral for awhile. I really wish I could get my ro/di up and running. Would really help things.

That sucks..
I know how your feeling.. I've had a ton of pains in the past weeks too.
Hopefully your tank will turn for the better.

No matter what, if you break the tank down and get out of the hobby, you will only miss it to eventually repurchase a new system. No matter what happens, keep going.

Thankfully, that isn't an option on the table. I always keep going. Things will be better and I know it. Just time.

I think we've all gone thru these times when you tank takes a real dumper ,.. It's trying to figure out just what the heck happened to cause it AND what the heck can I do to fix it is the burning question,... Like Doug says ,.. Once it's in your blood it's in your blood ,... You'll figure it out one way or another ,... It's just such a fascinating hobby with soooo much to learn and understand, ,..Sit back, pop a cold one and think it thru ,... If that doesn't work than pop another ,....Remember to make changes slowly ,
