Hmm.. I'm not sure, mine goes the same no matter how much I change it. i really hope the replacement kit I bought from them will do the trick though, I'll switch to brs after.

Here's the new corals, matt is great, in really hoping my corals do well for him. The ones I received had already extended and are looking great. The chalice looks absolutely amazing under blues, same with the other corals. The zoa frag is a lot bigger than I thought it was and I hope it does well for me. It looks a lot like the palys I sold but theres a lot more polyps which is great. I also included a pic of my slimer which is completely encrusted now. Fastest grower in the whole tank, no joke. I also bought a 300 micron filter sock so hopefully I'll be algae free in no time. The pics are crappy, I'm sorry. Future purchases are a nice camera and supplemental lighting, lighting comes first. Other than that.. I believe my tank is close to complete but I know I'm just saying that, it will never stop being tinkered with.

Haha thanks man! I hope it gets better, im having a bit of a bump right now, but.... Here's the gunk from my skimmer..and guess what else?? Me an my dad have installed a new 20amp breaker to the control panel just for me and maybe an iron sometimes.. It's pretty awesome. I could keep a coral farm or two on it lol! Now I'm going to find a power strip and I'll mount everything neatly.

That's what he said on the phone and when I got there the frag system I was offered he backed out on.. well his wife decided that haha.. from what I seen he's torn between running all his frag tanks or just getting out of it and keeping his big 190 bowfront but I guess the wife enjoys the frag tanks soooo... Well you should know how that goes lmao I'm just gonna play it by ear and try to be first one in if/when he decides to
