    if do daily water changes for full sps tank...

    Sure but you might have to change a lot of water depending upon your system demand. Unless you have a seawater intake it would not be very practical.

    Preventing Parasites when introducing clams

    So you are not using a QT for your corals and have had red bugs twice in a year. Shocking! Every time you add something to your tank without a QT you are taking a risk. It is really gonna be up to you if the risk is worth it. More likely to come in your new clam are Pyramid snails and/or...

    Is this red bugs?

    Red bugs don't really affect bird nests IME. Buy yourself some cheap magnifying reading glasses. They work really well to help you spot red bugs.

    Help with Potassium Permanganate treatment concentration and duration?

    I sure wish I had some input for you. I really like the concept. I have only used KMnO4 in Koi ponds, for which it works really well. Powerful stuff. Do you plan to use it in a separate hospital tank? So you can monitor the results easier? Are you planning to dip all your montis at once to rid...

    What's your turnover rate in your sps tank?

    350 g display (4)MP60s at 100% (1) Tunze 6305 at 100% This works out to over 100Xs just with powerheads Return pump is Hammerhead split between DT via OceanMotion and 25g Carlson surge that is 8' up. I have no idea how to calculate how much flow a 25g dump, from 8' up, 1.5" pipe, in less...

    Looks like a FTS regression when you put them in that order. Lol. :) Looks to be coming along really nice.

    2x MP40 WES in a 75 Gallon

    Totally depends on your scape. What is directly in front of your MP40s will decide for you. As long as you are not blowing off flesh your SPS will be fine. Probably best to start off at a lower 40 - 50% range to start. Maybe ramp them up a little at a time over some months. Eventually you...

    Is this die off?

    Might do it more harm than good. I would wait and see if it is getting better or worse.

    RPS all-out... take 2 !

    I really don't have any say whether or not manufacturers put the truth on their labels. I for one never said I was OK with it. I don't believe a whole lot of what I read on any manufacturers labels associated with this hobby or anything else for that matter. If the manufacturer had put on the...

    Is this die off?

    This one looks like those green palys are killing that spot. That other spot just looks like it was damaged somehow and some algae is growing there now. Everything else looks happy so I wouldn't worry about it too much unless it begins to spread.

    RPS all-out... take 2 !

    Along with all your un-hatched AEFW eggs. Isn't this the reason so many reefers have these little bastards today? I wasn't aware anyone has proven whether or not this product does or does not kill the eggs quite yet. Did I miss that somewhere? I honestly still don't know if I would trust...

    To run gfo or not?

    There is really no reason to waste your money on GFO if your PO4 is already low. If your PO4 is too low, then your GFO is probably doing more harm than good.
