    Lost the brunneus in QT. Something went through the fish like wild fire. Just the male blue star has survived. Hes in General Cure currently. Looks healthy.

    Here come the uglies. I ordered 50 Trochus 50 Cerith 20 Nassarius 6 Conch and 2 Cleaner Shrimp.

    I think I know your problem. Too cautious. Moving too slow. THROW THIS THING TOGETHER like the good ol'days. Getter dun.

    Losing fish sucks. Good thing you're QTing though. Hope you have cupramine ready to go. Velvet can take out fish even without visible signs on the body but it seems like something else did them in. Not sure if general cure needs more aeration as I know some medications might deplete O2 levels. Don't add any more fish for the time being. And dry out the QT completely before QTing more fish.

    Ugh tell me about this nasty disease. Had a healthy population of fish and introduced a couple of frags and boom! velvet outbreak. Not a fun event at all

    Diatoms are going away. Added some bakers yeast but can’t say it was the reason they are or if it’s simply just time. Fish love it as well.

    The first water change this weekend. Last I checked nitrates were hovering around 25. I also need to bump the alk cal and mag. I'll just do it by hand for now.

    Thanks @thegrun for the zoas!

    I already had to change the ro membrane and refill the two di cartridges. I only got about 400 to 500 gallons out of them.

    That's a crazy small amount of water to be getting out of dual DI and to also have to replace your membrane already, no way. I assume you checked everything, and trouble shoot already, but there has to be a better/cheaper way. Just out of curiosity, what TDS is your source?

    About 410 in and 14 out of the membrane currently. 0 after the two DI stages. I’m a newb when it comes to rodi setups. Wanna come by if your ever in the area and give me a lesson? I purchased a new membrane and purchased refillable di cartridges. I have the aquatic life booster pump as well.

    Brs has some good rodi break downs. I’m pretty sure tds should be under 10 after membrane
