    I have a feeling the mag will want to move somewhere with more flow over time. It’ll also probably climb up the rock work when it starts looking for more flow.

    I need to run something that an remove heavy metals, carbon won't do much, but that's all I had on hand and I had to fly out of town this week. Probably going to order some Metasorb soon.

    I haven’t posted in a while, it’s hard to get excited about the hobby when you’ve been struggling with mysterious coral deaths for nearly a year with no major culprit or solution. Yesterday though I may have *possibly* found a smoking fun. I was performing a water change and noticed the magnet holding my PH was slipping a bit. Pulled it off and noticed my hand was covered in black and there were some bumps on the magnet Needless to say I tossed the magnet immediately, changed 20 gallons, and put new carbon in the reactor. Really really hoping this has been the cause of my most recent coral struggles.

    Dang! That thing really is insanely bright. Where did it come from?

    I’ve been looking for magnificas, I was even looking for some in LA this week and could only find a boring one at a LFS. Definitely been a shortage lately...

    I stopped pumping outside air into my tank a while ago. I would smell weird chemical smells from time to time and it didn’t seem to help the pH drop that much. I decided it wasn’t worth the risk in case someone was spraying pesticides around my neighborhood and it getting sucked into the tank. I might install a CO2 scrubber on my protein skimmer down the road.

    Haha yeah, there hasn't been much to share since my tank has been slowly recovering from the mystery issues that started when I was on vacation last June. Things are still recovering, but randomly see SPS issues from time to time. I'm running Fluco again since GHA popped back up. I'm currently at one month of treatment with no protein skimmer and no carbon, which could be the cause of any current struggles. I'm trying to soldier on as long as I can to avoid the GHA from springing back as quickly as it did last time.

    I went to LA this week and made a (expensive) trip to UC! Excited to have something new to google at.

    Wow it’s been a long time since an update. Over 7 months of struggles ever since my tank randomly started having troubles while I was out of the country on vacation. A lot of losses, then half a year of stagnant growth and poor coloration. Now things seem to finally be turning around, better colors and corals started growing again. I lost all of my large colonies, including my red dragon.

    I have green slimer and ORA chips acro. I also have other acro frags and several encrusting montis (sunset, superman, chili pepper, rainbow)

    This is going to be one of those perennial corals that we all trade to each other and get back when our colony randomly dies. [emoji58]
