TMaier, I'm sorry for your loss.

My daughter was talking to my sister about her new Aquabot seahorse.

My sister didn't understand that the seahorse was not a living creature, so of course now my daughter wants a live seahorse. You know, I'm open to a marine tank at some point in the future, so I did a quick Google search.

Well, wonderful people, that is NOT happening in the foreseeable future.

Thanks, Aunt Gigi.

woke up this morn turned on lights in tanks to find milky white.
went through all my tests everything was on key except alk which was alarmingly low also noticed my salinity was awfully high .

so first things first did a large water-change to drop salinity I dropped it down around 2 points . tomorrow will drop it a little more. the water change also helped raise alk now I can see it on my chart .

tomorrow I will do another water change to drop salinity a bit more and to raise alk level.

I never seen my salinity level go up like that , than I looked around the parameter of the tank . I noticed it was clean someone decided to wipe down the build up that I usually do on sun ,

so now I know why my salinity level jumped all the excess salt build up dumped into the tank ,

but the alk level going down that much that it didn't even read on the chart , this still has me guessing ,

I did notice this week how some corals were receding , but I didn't think nothing of it but now I can see why after all the testing ,

the milky white I still haven't figured out other than when I opened up the tank top to do a water change it has a musky mold smell , so I cleaned out all the filter media in the sump added some white bio carb , it's been about a hour since I done all this the tank is sparkling clear again , the musky smell receded also , I rechecked salinity it sits at 1.029 I'll drop that more tomorrow ,

The thing is I never let my salinity peek over 1.024/1.025 so I see a few more water changes in the next few days. alk just reached a shy 7.2 still has a way to go,

fish seem to be a bit more active which tells me they are happy .
now it's time to change out RO/DI filters as there due for a change and I can tricle the new water into my 55g drum so I have plenty of water for tomorrow.

not what I like to wake up to but it could have been worse . now I just need to figure out why my alk dropped so rapidly. thinking this was the cause of the milky white I awoke to.

just have to wait till the beginning of the new year as I will be tearing down the 90g for a good cleaning.

Thank you for the condolences everyone. I figure I will wait a few months and make sure I do not have anymore unexplained casualties. All 6 of the neons I got last week have died. They were grey when I got them home and never colored up. I got a stern talking to from my husband about using one of my other tanks for quarantine. Now I'm just hoping not to lose my Khuli's and older cardinals and neons.

I went to 2 LFS and neither one recommended treating the tank and just waiting it out.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Main tank is still clearing. I rearranged things a bit. 3 types of Java fern, Anubias, and bucephalandra. A dash of dwarf sag and that red thing(can't remember). Click image for larger version

After moving the tanks yesterday, the big tank had a frosting of mulm on all surfaces. The filters were caked on the insides. Soooooooooo gross. Everything is clean now. The tanks are beautiful. Now my only problem is that I don't have a good seat to watch them!
