No problem! Thanks guys! I just ordered a refractometer from amazon with one day shipping so I'll check the salinity against that...the torch and anemone look much better...The only things remaining are the sulky leather and the cocoworm remaining forever in his tube (xenia is slowly pinking up and flowing again) I am still confused about what sparked this whole thing off...An instantaneous tank-wide sulk with no warning that seems to slowly be abating with the carbon and time, which never affected the fish.....still scratching my head about a cause...so weird... I am beginning to think I cannot keep a clam/anemones and a brain in the same tank due to such vastly different lighting requirements... For reference, here are my lights: http://current-usa.com/aquarium-led-lights/orbit-marine-fixtures/orbit-marine/ and http://www.21ledusa.com/aquarium_led_reefbar_blue_white_4_4_p/rbc573044wp.htm (I have 8 total of these) Can anyone speak to the skimmer issue? Why would it bubble but not collect much? Also, do you guys have any opinions on my choice of supplements? Aquavitro fuel and reef roids every few days? I am also using aquavitro 8.4 to raise the alk...is this ok?
