    OKAY...

    I know we don't like bring up other sites, but another one you are posting to says that your alk is 25? You posted here that it is 7? I am totally lost. Stop intervening and trying to fix things by adding stuff. Be patient. Listen to what others are telling you. I am really trying to help here, but you're making it difficult.

    End rant.

    My point exactly. There has already been a disaster with "brooklynella" brought on by stress and being impatient. Loosing zoas is not uncommon or a big deal. I'll say it again, pods are not eating your zoas. The same exact coral 4"away from the previous can react completely different and in a lot of cases it could take weeks before the coral finds a happy place. I moved my blue hornets up one rock and they never opened, put them back and now they don't close. You need to be patient and listen to the advice. Quit buying corals because your parameters are off and as of now I'm sure stability is not happening. Once you get to the target parameters try to keep it there for a month and then try another coral.
