My params are all ok.

Ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrates <5. PH 8, phosphate doesnt even give me a reading. Ca 430 , mg 1280, kh 8 salinity is 1.025 temps 26°C

Did a water change yesterday and before that it was doing well water was matched salinity and temp

Looks good so far. If you start to see the fleshy part start to fall apart then it`s the brown jelly disease. Hopefully you don't have it.
