I️ am going to pick up a goby and some snails this weekend. What type of snails do you recommend? I️ have had bad luck with some dying in the past and wasnt sure what type to purchase.

Trochus snails are a possibility.

I picked up a goby and a few torches snails. My phosphate is now at 0.05 and the sand and rocks are clear. I also took advantage of Bulk Reef Supplys 25% off sale on KZ products, and I have picked up a little of each additive for future use. I would like to start dosing some CV, Xtra, snow and zyme and others. Can I get your thought on what amount to dose and when. I assume I need to ease into it slowly and watch for any problems from the onset.

Thanks.

If you like to you can dose Snow and Zym 2 x weekly on alternate days:

Snow – 8 ml
Zym – 1 spoon

As long as nutrients are elevated I recommend to wait some time before starting to CV and XTra:

CV – 16 drops 2 x weekly
XTra – 8 ml 2 x weekly

My reef is now 2 months old and my phosphates are now down to 0.03. I am really happy with the results thus far. That being said, I know it is still going to take some time to see better coloration and polyp extension. Most of my SPS are showing polyps during the day, but not all. At night they all have full polyps out.

Ever since adding the goby and snails, I am having no problems with brown film. The goby is keeping my sand bed 100% clean (thank you for the suggestion Alexander).

I have been dosing Xtra and CV for the past week. Would it be okay to start using Amino or Food7? Any other suggestions, or should I leave things be for now? When do I use B-Balance?

Overall, I am very happy with the results and my corals are gowing

Can you tell which kind of corals exactly do show issues with PE while the lighting period ? Have you already checked the K+ level ?

Yes, my K+ is right around 350. I dosed 4 ml of KZ potassium tonight, but I assume it is not that low.

Most corals are very happy, but I think something or some pest is after my first coral. It just took a turn for the worse yesterday, but all others are very happy...? Perhaps the new peppermint shrimp I bought last week is eating it?

First pic below is the damaged coral. Other seem fine. I have similar corals to the first that are not showing any damage. Any ideas?

Those kind of shrimps do often nip on corals, they might be the reason.
