"Use 1 package for aquariums up to 40 gallons, 2 packages for 40- to 100-gallon aquariums. Aquariums above 100 gallons require 2 packages plus one package for every additional 25 gallons." (From Drs. F&S info) The math seems right to me (she said anxiously) 125g = 3units

Since I didn't want to throw in 3 packages all at once, I started with two, then added the last one two weeks later, and weaned out the carbon I was using in the meantime.

When you say take it out for "a while" how long does a "while" mean?

I know I sound just a little frantic, but I love my corals, and don't really like to lose them. ...and here I thought I was doing them such good using ChemiPure. Does anyone else use this product? Have you experienced this ill effect at 'higher doses'?

Take it out for a weeka and if you don't see any improvements then something else is causing it to decline. You have to weed out the problems one at a time or you won't know what caused the problem. I know it's hard when an animal in your care declines and I feel for you. I am just trying to think outside the box and help you.
