  1. The 55w uv is quite large, but you should be able to rig it over the tank. Doesn’t have to be pretty, just a temporary fixture. UV is only effective on certain strains of dino, and you should see results in a couple days if it’s helping (some report within 24 hours). UV did not help much for mine, which I believe are amphidinium. PM me if you want to give it a try. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. +1 absolutely stop carbon dosing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. i’m in alexandria and have a cheap microscope i got for my dino battle. Also have a jeboa 55w UV. You’re welcome to borrow both. My dino battle is mostly under control now. Do you have any pics of your dinos? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. what kind of nori are you feeding? If it’s not specifically for fish, make sure it doesn’t have flavoring/additives. Are snails dying also? Do you have a picture of the algae, could you have dinoflagellates? Also, if you’re not quarantining it may just be coincidence that those fish were the ones to succumb to some parasite/disease.

  5. looks like bacterial or fungal infection. Would check out the link below for treatment options. Kanaplex or metroplex might be the best bet. https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/bacterial-infections.191511/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. hmm, found him on the tank bottom, not sure which coral was his home... but i’ll leave him in the QT tank and see if he makes it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ve had a single female emerald crab in my coral/invert QT for several months. Just spotted this baby crab. Is it a baby emerald? Or a pest crab I should remove? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. My phosphates did hit 0 for a bit, but nitrate was around 10. Now they are more balanced at po4 .03 no3 2-5ish. Dealing with some hair algae now, but corals are doing much better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I have a very similar issue, but think i’m on the path to recovery now. What’s your PH? My PH was really low, like 7.7-7.8. And my SPS were paling, and basically stopped growing. I added a co2 scrubber and now my PH stays 8-8.2. Within a month my 2 part dosing demand went from 20ml to 60ml. I also started feeding reef chili frequently. Colors are coming back and growing well. Not sure if PH or nutrients were the root of the issue, but seems to have helped a lot. Following for others advice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Big water change! Water changes are much safer and effective than trying to fix problems with additives. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Alk could be too high for your nitrate level? I believe running high alk requires a bit more nitrate to support the growth rate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I just added a t5 retrofit kit from BRS, to my reefbreeders 48”. I’m currently running a coral+ and actinic (also have a blue+, still trying to decide what combo i like better). The kit was only $130, if you don’t mind a little diy. Very happy with it so far. https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/t5-ho-miro-4-retrofit-kit-let-lighting.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I could be available, I’m near Loftridge park in Alexandria. If you want to give me a walk through of your system when I come pick up the phyto, I’d be happy to help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. what kind of fish? Hybrids do occur naturally, it could have been a wild caught hybrid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. red patches on the body could suggest uronema https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/uronema-marinum.247940/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
