I want to start using the GFO
, to get out of using the Phosphate pads, as I've heard they can adversely effect corals. And from what I'm seeing in my LPS
, I'm wondering if this is the cause.
When I used to run canisters on my old 135, I used to run carbon 1 week out of every month. Since I upgraded, I haven't run any carbon, and since my tank is a mixed reef, I thought that starting to run it, might help defend against chemical warfare., as this is a possibility for why my LPS
is not fairing well at this point too.
It's really strange though, SPS
is growing great... That's why I was thinking too clean of a tank was a possibility too. I've heard that LPS
prefer a little "dirtier water". I feed often, so I dont think that the water is that clean, but I only have 4 fish, and do weekly changes.
IDK, this is driving me crazy!!! To have gone this long, and start to lose easier corals to keep, has me pretty stumped.
Thanks for the input, Dan...
