    I do not think the water chemistry that we test for reflects events like macro algae going sexual or other such events/spawning, disturbance of anoxic areas until corals really start to decline, unfortunately, I wish it were that easy.

    The only change was the caulerpa dying off?

    Just mixed up 100 gallons of salt water - do you think a 33% change is to much considering I have done 100 gallons in the last few days. I am pushing just over 300 gallons in the system.

    I would wait on another water change if the anemone is open and things look improved.
