This thread was started out of concern for your corals and has somewhat side-tracked. Pics of your corals, or at the very least, a proper desrption of their behavior would sure help us out in trying to trouble shoot your problem.

Should I remove carbon before adding Chemi Clean? The Whisper will not take it out will it (other than the carbon)?
Remove all froms of chemical filtration, including carbon. Filter pads, if just floss, can remain. If you have a skimmer turn it off.

lando I want to say they said the cyno was covering the corals... That is why we are telling them to get the water tested for po4 and get us some readings.

I do think he was meaning sidetracked by the Powerhead issues.

But, Corals dying=cyano killing them=need to get rid of cyano=powerhead might help get rid of cyano.


Mechanical filtration can remain in there?

There is no mention of this. The first post says that the corals are not opening and that he has cyno. Saying that the cyno is covering the corals causing them to not open is an inference (although you can assume). I asked for pics four pages ago and am still waiting. We may have been able to have things figured out by now...

That would have been helpful info four pages ago...For now, Try Chemi-clean and wter changes. Replace your broken powerhead with two new ones and see what happens. I will graciously bow out of this thread. I do not have the patience any more.
