    Not so good for me. I finally got the brown jelly under control, however it after finally getting it cleared up I had a hair and green film algae issue followed by a Cyano outbreak. Between the brown jelly and the Cyano I have lost between a 1/3 and 1/2 of my big gold wall hammer colony. One of the three Duncan colonies is not doing well. It has stayed almost completely sucked in and only partially extends its polyps since my last update. The one for the grow campaign is still struggling as well either. It had started a new pup bringing the total to 3 heads and both of the pups have shriveled up and are staying closed. My original Duncan colony is the only one of the three still doing really well, so I may end up donating it if the purple one doesn't snap back.

    I gave up on the ozone as it did not seem to be actually doing anything for me other than really clear looking water. I ended up pulling all the rock and coral out and kept them in a pair of 18g tubs and doing a 90% water change over the span of 3 days. The fish all went into a 20g tank during this time frame. I vacuumed the crap out of the sand bed and then restored the tank. Since then everything seems to be going OK.

    Tank parameters are as follows.

    Temp: 78.5
    Salinity: 1.022
    Ammonia: 0
    Nitrites: 0
    Nitrates: .5
    Phos: .55
    PH: 8.1
    Alk: 11
    Cal: 440
    Mg: 1400

    I'll post a pic later tonight.

    Wow! Definately sounds like you have had a heck of a time lately! With so much going on so closely together it certainly makes it a challenge to pin point what started it all. In re-reading your posts it looks to me that you really too a good look at your tank, params, changes, options, etc...definately crossing my fingers for you!

    To be fair the acro has been broken a few times. A couple 3-4 branches have been broken and fallen down into the rocks to be lost forever. Also. When the moment of truth comes, Ill have several other pieces Ill donate as well
