    Would you consider them getting lighter or browner? More so after the lighting change? Did it already start before the lighting change?

    It may have happened a little before the lighting change. I really couldn't tell you as I didn't notice. It's def not browning. Just getting lighter. I did just re test everything and my PO4 is at 0.024. Alk was at 8.9 and cal was at 470. I am going to try and get them both down a hair.

    I'd go with some more feedings or use fuel again and see how it looks. I just think you could add a bit more nitrates and just let them adjust to the new lighting. I bet you they'll color right back up.

    If you can borrow a par meter from the club, I'd do that so you can know if you are roasting them or not.

    About a week ago, i did change my Radiums, and i noticed that all this started after i changed or cleaned my CARX and had some fluctuations in ALK levels which are now stable again. On some of my corals, i noticed the lack of PE.

    Vitals:

    Salinity: 1.026
    Alk: 8.3-8.6
    Cal: 480-500
    Magnesium: 1500 - 1520
    Phosp: .06
    Nitrate: .02

    I am running GFO and Bio-Pellets
    Ease up on the biopellets would be my suggestion. Take out half!
