My specific gravity is at 1.025. This is at 80 degrees. Should I raise it a little?

Do you dose with calcium? There are several books, including Sprung's reef series, that discuss how phosphate is precipitated out by the introduction of calcium (kalkwasser). I'd do a little research before I tore my tank down. Mine's been running for 2.5 months, and while I had a small cyano spike when I was cycling my LR, it's mostly gone. My left hand crabs eat slime, so do my fighting and queen conchs. Try some biological controls as well. Good luck, I know it's frustrating.

No more brine for us. I have been using a phosphate sponge every couple of days.
