    I'm going to check that out. The only reason I run carbon is because I have sps mixed in my tank and want to dilute the chem war going on a bit.

    Try not running any carbon at all for a few days. If its the carbon that's bothering the softies it will show improvement right away.

    I will give that a shot. right now I left for a week. so when I get back I will see the surprise with the tank and will then try to run without carbon for a few days.

    Second that on Fuel, my coral love it.

    Why should we not use Kent products? I know they are expensive but is there something else wrong with them?

    What ypu dosed probably just triggered a feeding response.

    Calcium, baking soda and fish food is all you need to add.
