Almost all coral colonies and frags look happier than before during the alkalinity correction process)...

Will start color improvement as next step and collect some special coral species....any suggestions??? Especial I found my green color worse than before, I did add Iron regularly, could it be T5 light?

The nutrient poorer a system gets the more difficult it is to keep the green corals on the dark green site, they usually become more yellow. You might try adding some iodine also but usually your observation is common.

Thanks, that explain. What is your suggestion to increase nutrient? double CV? My 190 gallon tank already add 10 drops CV per day, and feed fish three times a day. All advices are welcome.

I would not increase nutrients like PO4 or NO3 with any kind of chemical substance. Basically your corals looking very good and healthy from the pictures so I would personally leave it as it is.

You can try to play around with products like XTra or CoralBooster if you like to, also placing the corals in a area with less light can help.

Thanks for sharing your tank! You've got a great one. The corals look healthy and very alive! Do you have any tips to share on keeping the algae at bay? I am having problems with them.

Thanks.

I will give Xtra and Booster a try after I back from my one week UK trip.

Thanks. This tank is still young (set it up on Jan. 2, 2015) so maybe algae not yet booming. Plus I did use most dead rock first, added only 15 lb fresh live rock, when fresh I meant I asked my LFS get live rock from ocean directly without added into his tank before it contaminate bad thing from his system. I have relative strong current (main pumps are Red Dragon 8000L/hr x 2 + Tunze pump x 4 in display tank). I also have a 20 gallon refugium tank (right side on the picture below) with one Tunze circulate water twice a day. Not sure any of above help, so just share you all.

Recently, I decided to move some colorless colonies to places not easy to be seen or on sand base, and their old spots replaced by some three weeks old new corals.

See below...







[






Two observations quite bother me and any suggestion are welcome, please.

1. Caroline algae develop much slower than my last tank. My CA reading is 400+ ppm, Mg is 1400+, and Alkalinity is ~7.5 dkH, I add Iron regularly.

2. Zeovit sand base (2 cm) very easy to get brown color and become rock hard in some place. I regularly scrape top 0.5 cm, wash it, then put it back, and siphon sand during water change.

I only dose Bak, Start (half of recommend volume), Iron, Sponge Power and AA (half of recommended volume) now since got some brown algae and diatom issue on sand bad and live rock. I think I feed too much after adding school fish.
but plan to dosing Iron, PIF and Xtra soon since coral looks healthy enough and tank is over 6 months old now.
