I took it down like back in Sep or Oct. I don't think I had enough flow. I ended up just running Chaeto and a GFO Reactor.

I don't know how, because I did all new coral including the plugs, but it looks like I have bryopsis in some spots. I've increased mag to 1600, running PhosGuard and changing every 4 days, running GFO reactor too. We'll see how it goes.

I lost over half my fish to what looked like brook because I didn't QT ONE fish. ONE FISH! LOL So the YT is gone.

Plus I haven't had luck with any tangs eating algae. They nip at it but not enough to keep the tank clean.

I manually removed most of the algae yesterday and did a 10 gallon water change. I changed out phosguard and GFO as well.

That sucks about Brook. I got lucky, my Tangs go at it. I gotta do a 10g Water Change today. I got lazy yesterday.
