Ok here's all the specs on my setup
20G Glass tank w/ drilled overflow 1" and drilled 1/2" input (return) from a mag 5 (I know I hate mags too, but I had it laying around for mixing salt)
A 10G sump FILLED with LR and cheato
The Fuge light is a LOA on 24/7 for cheato growth
A small power head in the sump to keep good flow for cheato
(2) 200W Heaters in the sump (It's in my VERY cold garage)
A Tunze 9002 Skimmer
A CA250W SE w/ reflector about 8" off the water surface running on a Hello Lights Electronic Ballast
Eggcrate with multi teirs for frags
35 snails for clean up crew
A Tunze Nano Stream 6025 for flow
A 200 Micron filter sock on the overflow
Weekly water changes with RC's 5G's
Temp swings from 77-82 Night to Day
Building an ATO for more stable salinity @ .025
Halides run for 5 hours per day (5:00PM to 10:00PM)
Ok I think I covered everything.
Now my questions..
Every SPS I seem to add to the tank browns out within 3-7 days.
They continue to grow and encrust but are just BROWN.
What am I doing wrong?
Or better yet what should I be doing that I'm not?
Thanks in advance.
