Difficult to say but I would do another test in about one week.

something is making my water cloudy, could it be the K Ive been dosing? I have added 250ml so far but the test has only gone from 320 to 330ppm. I have now changed to Red Sea Blue Salt from Red Sea Coral Pro. I also dipped corals today with CoralRX & everything looks like it will survive, they are looking marginally better shortly after returning them to the DT

I have never had a cloudiness because of K-Balance also never hear about it. Lets try to dose 10 m CoralSnow once daily for 5 days. Do you have any kind of Dinoflagellate in your system ?

Default water parameters

so these are my water parameters as of yesterday:
S 34.7
T 78.6
pH 7.77
NH3 0
NO2 0
NO3 0 Hanna Checker
Ca 450
KH 8.0
PO4 0 Hanna Checker
Mg 1290
K 330
P 15 Hanna Checker (equates to 0.0456 PO4)
KH at 8.0 is a little high because of a larger than normal water change (25%) after the coral dip on the weekend, otherwise all is stable since the month of May.
Growth of everything seems to have stalled compared to when parameters first started coming into line with what you suggested so Im thinking I should be starting additional supplements. What would you suggest (if any) & how much?
I changed the pump on the zeo reactor to a smaller one & recalibrated it to the 130gph.
my Rose BTA split in two on the weekend & seems content. everything else is looking better than when I started for sure, Im happy with the progress....finally after almost 5yrs of struggling & nearly giving up.
MANY THANKS for the help
