Is your outbreak bad or are you just paranoid about it?

Also, I caught the rogue nudibranch last night. I relocated him in the 36 FOWLR tank with the eel and flame angel. It has adjusted and doing its thing and I will continue to watch it. I've never seen a nudi like it. Rather than it having the riffled ridges along its back...it is more like a skirt the whole way around it. Pretty cool. Reminds me of an egg after you crack it...just with a black skirt and white center. I'm debating what it was eating...it can't be new to my tank as nothing new has been added that could have carried something that large in quite some time. I'm thinking it was in one of the mud spots in some of the LR that I couldn't get cleaned out.
It's gotten bad once again, I'm not even enjoying my tank the way it is. I completely nuked the tank and its still coming back. Only thing left is Gfo, of that doesn't work, I'm tempted to by all new base rock.. Or just give in.

GFO might help. Don't really know. I just read about how rough byropsis is. I have found a patch, killed it, found it in my overflow, killed it, found it in a powerhead, killed it. We'll see...I'm raising my alk as we speak so hopefully this is also helping. You did high alk too right?

Yep, I did high alk. Only use kent m, it has something in it that helps. But it didn't too all that much for me. Be vigorous and when you see it, tear it out asap. It spreads everywhere and fast. Good luck, it's unbelievably hard to remove.

I just pulled it out with some airline tubing running a siphon near it when I did it. If it is in my overflow, I'm ok with it. That is much more controlable than it being in the tank.

Woke up today and my rbta moved! Kind of odd since he has been happy in his spot for quite some time now. Thankfully, he moved to the back of the tank and not on a coral. He picked a nice spot, the meteor shower that died and I pushed the skeleton behind the rock is where it is currently sitting. Planning on doing a 5g pwc tomorrow as normally scheduled, but maybe do a 10 g if I can get the water for it. I didn't have any real concerns until I started watching my gbta. This guy just hasn't adapted well to my tank ever, either hiding or just acting angry. But, after he had been looking the best he had been in the last few days his mouth was really gapped. Hoping that it wasn't him that caused this, but a large water change will be good for my system anyway.

Also, found some more byropsis hiding on my back glass behind the rocks while I was looking at my rbta. Can't get to it so I'm not worried about it for the most part.

Also started doing some reading about Radions from mrsaltwaterfish when he first got them compared to MH. Read is here btw: Mr. Saltwater Tank’s Radion LED Experiment
It is interesting that he was running his radions at 100%. This was in his SPS tank, and I really don't think that it is even doable for LPS at that intensity. At 60% power I have to put my LPS in the shade. Eitherway, more researching for me. I just want to have my corals be as bright as everyon elses at this point. I have a beautiful starlight acro that shows its light blue polyps, but it is still quite brown.

While I'm thinking about my corals, any insight on plate corals? This might just be me being picky...as I bought my purple rimmed plate from saltwaterfish.com. In the picture when I bought it it was white and purple. But...coral shouldn't be white...right???

I have the same plate coral and it's white with purple too. Had it forever and it seems healthy.

I kept having issues getting a picture of mine, so I googled, and this is EXACTLY what mine looks like during the day.
