    i tested my tank tonight: alk 9.4 cal 380 mag 1875 sal 1026 n03 5~ phos 0 I bought an auto doser a months or two ago and have it hooked up to dose the Kent CB 2 part. Before the auto doser I didnt have this issue. Any ideas on how mag can get so high? And i honestly dont think its a bad test...

    Switching salt brands

    I switch salt from Oceanic to reef crystals every bucket. I have found no issues what-so-ever in doing so. If anything, the diverse trace elements would be benefical. Dont believe everythingone person tells you :)

    Friends Alkalinty is around 12 - is that bad & how to fix?

    its fine. nothing will be harmed. I normally skip a day of dosing after a water change. just have him cut down the dosing a 1/2 cap full or whatever. Check cal, but only thing you can do is just stop dosing for 2 days. and reduce dosing amount

    Skimmer flipping out after VC overdose.

    I have a Octopus NW 150. its been running awesome for almost a year now. I started dosing VC a little too fast and it cause a bacteria outbreak with cloudy water and all corals closing up. This was 2 days ago. Everything seems fine now since i did a water change and stopped dosing. I set my...

    Help Candy Cane!!!!!

    Is it near something else? Could it have been stung? Where in the tank is it? They need medium light and medium flow. Did you acclimate it for 30 minutes or so?

    New Tank Dilemma (Aiptasia)

    tough call. id pull the rocks and dry them out. Try to get a fellow reefer in the area to sell you a rock to seed. Dont mess with aptasia man, its better to take swift action now then be screwed later when you add corals.

    Treating with Vitamin C

    Im up to one table spoon 2x/day (13.3g - 35ppm) in my 100g with zoa pox. The pallys have opened up like crazy and other corals show a small difference. My RTBA likes it the most. he's extending massively during the day. I plan on getting it to 100ppm like puffer suggested.

    Zoa Pox - cant shake them.

    nice. i just got my buffed vc in today. so 100ppm? 35000mg twice a day? thats not too much?

    Zoa Pox - cant shake them.

    yeah, i actually ordered the buffered powder and im just waiting for it to come in. you did 100ppm for how long? after the pox are gone what did you drop it to?

    Zoa Pox - cant shake them.

    i have a rock wall and other sps all near the top. best i can do is drain my sump 30g (25g net). So i mean, just do them weekly or kick it up to every 3-4 days?

    Zoa Pox - cant shake them.

    yeah i treat all that have it. it would be impossible for me to treat all of them even if they didnt have it. I guess im screwed. my VC dosing does not seem to be helping. but i am soon switching to the powder. i currently use kent marine C liquid. its my hail mary pass.
