I had the same problem when I pulled everything out except the surface layer when removing a damsel fish. Seems that it's impossible to get the rocks back in the way they came out. You'll get something set and probably be happier than you were before.

Hey all. Crazy few weeks. Vacation, I got engaged to my awesome gf! My parents adopted a dog etc etc.

Cyano is coming back!!!! Grrrrrrrr!!!!!!! I've kept up with water changes and all and I insured my fish watcher while on vacation didn't over feed. So I dunno what's up.

All the additions both coral and fish are doing well so at least that's good.

Ill get some pics and go into more details later

I have no luck. My new wrasse disappeared last week. My Royal Gamma disappeared yesterday. and now my plate coral is rapidly dying. Is there anything I can do? This tank has given me more stress than enjoyment, its hard to keep spending the money on it :/

Based in your parameters, I would say get nitrates down, calcium above 420, and Alk while good, could use a boost. Do you dose at all? What's your PH and phosphates? I'm not familiar with plate corals (never had one) so I can't real speculate beyond parameters. Do you feed it?

As for fish, I'm at a loss. Did they get along with each other? In my experience, it's easier to keep fish than coral.

pH was 8.0 or 8.2 I forget and done have my log in front of me.

I was dosing Kent Nano 2 part but I didn't dose when I was on vacation or the week after (forgot). no sign of phosphates on my test kit

as far as fish go. They all seem fine then one night....poof....they disappear. The big clown bullies everyone for about a day or two when they first arrive but then they all get along. And I never lost a fish in the first week. Its always a month or so after they are added.

That's interesting. I dose the same stuff, Kent Marine Nano Parts A and B with good results. It doesn't increase my parameters, just maintains it. If I had to guess, the aggressive clownfish might be a calpret. I lost one fish (firefish) after haveing it for several months do to a more active chromis. However, I'm torn......you wrasses should be more aggressive than the clown, so I'm really unsure. Sorry

Not sure about the gramma but some wrasses can be jumpers. How tight is your lid?
