lps needs help

Postby jeff on 17 Jan 2015 21:15

Anyone any ideas what u can do to try save this its going down hill since I start using nopox I've over 30 corals and this is the only one that not doing well, I have the coral well over a year
It ha a bit of cyano growing on it where it's white on top fir a few days 3-4 but all clean now

Could it be nopox (only dosing 2ml per 100l)
Could it be from cyano

All water is fine apart from nitrates about ten now two weeks ago they where 50 were the coral was thriving

Have also changed my salt 2-3wks ago to the red Sea pro was only using the regular for two year
Also brought my Sg down from 1.026 to 1.024
Could it be Any if these things

And like I said anything I can do straight away to help it for now

If you strip nutrients too fast it can shock Corals and they can sulk or die

How long have you had this coral, and do you have moon light on during all night?
This is a drug and im getting addicted little by little.

Sorry to hear this. Regarding no pox aren't we advise to dose half ml per 100 litres as a start? Might be overdosing no pox.

Was recommended to use this amount of nopox @ half on the morning and half at night
Have it well over a year
No moon light 4t5s and 2 aquaray 600 actinic

So, so far my best option is to maybe reduce the nopox a bit
Anything else I can do
