I am more than happy if I can help so please feel free to ask questions whenever it is necessary.

For your system volume I would recommend to dose:

ZeoBac – 5 drops 2 – 3 x weekly
ZeoStart – 0.5 ml 2 x daily
BioMate – 10 drops 2 x weekly
SpongePower – 5 drops every other day
ZeoFood – 5 drops 2 x weekly
AmionAcid – 5 drops 2 x weekly
CoralSnow – 5 ml 2 x weekly
CoralVitalizer – 5 drops 2 x weekly
FlatwormStop – 2.5 ml 2 x weekly
XTra – 2.5 ml 2 x weekly

If the system runs nutrient poor stabile and if corals have already started to get lighter tissue showing good growth.

You can pump the reactor once or twice daily (morning / evening).

Is it possible that the new frags all came with one shipment which has stressed the corals already before you added them to your system ?

Also does they started to loose tissue from the base or starting on the tips ? How long have you had the corals in your system before ?

That is really unusual, however if you like to you can dose CoralBooster @ 1 ml / 25 US gallons 2 x weekly. Make sure all other parameters are within the recommended ranges and please check of the reactor flow might be to high by measuring the flow.

Mike do you still have the problem with the bleaching corals ?

Your last post is a couple of weeks old so I would like to know if anything has changed since than.
