    Yes I have screen, that's my favorite fish awesome personality. I like to watch him carry hermit crabs across the tank when they get too close to his burrow.

    Corailline, thank you so much for your help, and everyone else that joined in Gabby, Servillius thanks for all you input ill keep updating as things progress. This has been a great learning experience in reef keeping. And I learned a whole lot.

    +1. I'm sure this thread will help many in the future.

    Not a problem! I must say that I learned a lot from this thread as well. There is always more to learn!

    If I would have done the blackout and raised ph back when Corailline suggested, I would have taken care of it sooner. I lost some acros and fish but it was due to me prolonging and trying other things to avoid the blackout. I messed with it too much stirring sandbed and all other sorts of things. I stressed my corals depriving them of light in the beginning cause I tried to export Dino's and drastically shortened my photo cycle for 2 weeks. Which in turned caused the problems and I had to kill lights anyway to solve it. My suggestion to anyone else with this problem is to please kill the lights and raise pH and do not even try anything else it will just cause problems. My tank is looking great thanks to the help from everyone here.

    And most definitely this will help other hobbyist that come across this problem.



    Well the tank is looking great, I will begin to increase my lighting.

    Everything is good on this side, no signs of any Dino's or any sort of algae whatsoever.
