That is a really good PAR number you got and it shows in the corals.Unless you are doing high light only corals I would not turn it up any more.Looks like you will have a full up reef here soon,just wait till things really start growing. Hit up your local reef club again for a frag swap to fill in the blanks but don't forget to dip.

I bought some frags a few weeks ago, but they had to be fresh cut, waiting for them to heal up nice and i should be getting them soon. A couple of different zoas, magicians, emeralds on fire, glitch, cats' eye, and some thing else

Nice!Sounds like a good zoa\paly pack your getting ,making a zoa garden? I have a friend who has a zoa hoard and When the price is right it is hard to say no. I find myself spending much of my hard earned money on more corals.I am the single income for a family of 6 but I still find a little cash for a frag or two at the end of the month.

Update!

So i have been battling cyano, diatoms, and worste of all hair algae like crazy. I just did a little more than 72 hours of no light and for, one, the sand is pearly white lol. No diatoms and cyano, however HA is still wild. So i took every single coral out of the tank and put them in a frag tank. Took a bucket of water from the tank and scrubbed the heck out of every piece of rock i had. Its not as bad as it was yet, but its still not gone. I finally got that zoa pack. everything looked great except the magicians, i dont think they are going to make it. It looks as though its pinching its own head off... I dipped in iodin for 20 min so hopefully it will bounce back. Picture to follow

You have done what you can. Might keep some indirect flow on it and keep it clean,thats all you can do. I have seen this happen to my Tyree Blue Eyed Girls and they came too over time.
