    Not really.

    All the rock was scrubbed, the heavy GHA infected rocks were dried that I couldn't scrub it all off, and I did the DT rock first then fuge rock.

    I saved 60% of the water.

    Once the rocks were back in the aquarium I added a 2 day regime of bacteria booster. Tank is cycled. There was no ammonia spike. There is little die off.

    0 tank mates lost during the breakdown.

    I follow the K.I.S.S. rule also, I guess the most technical thing about my tank is my skimmer or maybe my refugium. I rarely dose anything in my tank.

    I'm going to say crisis averted.

    0 deaths.

    visibility back up to 8 feet.

    90% clarity.

    Skimmate production has slowed.

    Oddly, Tank has less of an odor now.

    For reference and approximations..

    I think approximately 700 ML was pumped into the tank, of approximately 300 gallons in total volume, over a span of 12 minutes. Resulting in about 2.3 ML per gallon.

    From this point on, I am going to continue to vodka dose. I will take precautions as to not allow this to happen again.

    Thanks for the input.
