Well so far the only thing that has died was the one S.L Crab.. Everything else has been doing great.. The Xenia seems to be the least one bothered by the meds... I have not noticed anything else happening.. The spots that I believed to be Ich on my Percula are now gone and have been for a day now.. I was/Am still leary about using meds in the Display tank and dont believe I would do it again... So far this medications has been Pretty "Reef SAfe"... No losses other then the one mentioned and well the Elegance coral is about gone but it was before the meds... I will say that there is only 2 more days left for the dosing of the Meds and so far so good..
As with the pH I went to test and for some reason the reagent for the pH was Empty... The Meds state that it will cause a pH drop almost Immediatly so I have been trying to compensate "Buffer" the best that I could without the Reagent as My replacement was supposed to be here days ago... Been Playing It safe 1 tsp washing-soda-baking soda mix in a cup of ro
.. (6parts BS 1part WS is the Mix)
I was a bit upset that the reagent was gone due to the fact that this is an almost new seachem kit.. Seachem thinks that the kit might have been used prior... Hopefully the reagent should be here today so I will let you know how much it fluctuates then.. I would go out and but a kit but the only ones sold is the Red Sea kits and they are extremely unaccurate off by .2 last time I compared with seachems..
55gal tank w/ 10gal sump Stated dosing meds for 55gal tank but dropped dose to 45gals.. Everything seems to be better... this is where I wish I knew exactly how much water was in the tank after displacement..
