Yup, Pmed a few times, even had thier tech service call me. We couldn't get it figured out so they wanted me to send them back the unit to poland and maybe it will get fixed.



No thanks, would just rather have a doser thats not such a hassle. I think for right now I have 2 BRS standalone units I can use. Until then, I'll buy a better unit later on down the road.

Ugh sorry about the issues with... the Kore doser, the acans, and the cleaner. Not a great streak. At least you can keep fish now?

For the stylo, as mentioned the flow may be making it curl over in its growth (they usually grow into the flow though, not away from it), and then the light area with few polyps is probably going to turn into "underside" where that's pretty common since they don't get a lot of direct light.

I wish I could help on the acans, but I can't seem to keep LPS for the most part, except for my fungia plate which grew an incredible amount in the cube until it up and died for no apparent reason one day, but it grew to enormous size in 5 years, taking up all available room.

You going to RAP? I suspect Soul is, and I'll be there as well. I'm trying to figure out whether to blow my piggy bank there, or do a deal with a local with a pile of nice frags and get a lot of nice pieces for a low price.

If you go to RAP maybe you'll see if there is a new dosing pump worth checking out? Or see if Kore or one of their distributors will be there, and see if you can use them for a connection to sending your doser back, so that you don't have to front the shipping?

Woke up this morning to hear a popping sound, and the smell of burning electronics. Searched around and when I saw some smoke coming from my sump, I found this:



Apparently the last time I cleaned the ATS, I never pulled the extra cord from the back light so it wasn't sitting in the water. My wife who gets up with the dogs around midnight, has said the last couple days she has hear a popping coming from the tank. I could never find anything until this morning.

I have since fixed it, but I don't know if it was the voltage, or the burning, but everything seems quite PO'ed right now.
Green Slimer has been sliming like mad all morning.



All nems are closed up. My BTA's are even hiding in the rocks they sit on.




Even my clam who I never see closed except at night is closed up.




This stylo always has it's polyps out.



I do run carbon 24/7 and just changed it on Sunday during my weekly WC. So I'll just wait and see for now. Hopefully everything is ok.

Dang! What is (err, was) the thing that burned out? Shouldn't you do a water change or something? I wish I had some wise words to fix whatever is going on.

I'd refresh your carbon honestly and do a water change.

The picture is of a connection I made to one of the ATS lights to extend the plug. It's burned up wire inside black tape and shrink wrap.



I wonder since the wire is copper, if I don't have a low level of copper in the water now? Could explain why the corals are so PO'ed and the fish are fine?



50G WC is on tap as soon as it's mixed up.

Copper or other nasty chemicals, yeah. The burned out insulation and tape could release petrochemicals I would think. There could have been electrical shocks. You're lucky in one sense, you could've been shocked badly.

24 hours and a 50G WC later things are looking better.



I do believe I've lost my last remaing turbo snail, and my chitons don't act quite right. Corals seem to be doing a bit better, and all the nems, and clam are fully open.



My 2 remaining chitons are still attached to the glass, but their "skirt"(for lack of a better term) is not pressed tight to the glass. Which for them is kind of odd as their "skirt" is usually tight and you can't see their fleshy underside.



Things still look a bit odd(I can't really explain it other then odd), but everything seems to be rebounding pretty well.

I skimmed through page 25 ish to present, I think the issue might be all the drastic changes done to the tank. I personally use to run GFO and Carbon and bleached a lot of corals/killed and eventually changed to something more natural, a chaeto reactor. I feel like I killed a lot of corals when I was trying to prevent it due to all the things I was suggested on doing/ using. I'm not sure what your setup is like, but sometimes the simpler, the better. My tank is really simple, it's a nuvo 20, sand and rock, sump is live rocks and some filter floss I haven't changed in 2 months and a small skimmer. A chaeto reactor I made using my carbon/GFO reactor, put some LED lights, and use the chaeto growth to trade for more frags. I also dose 2 part, and add Mag every 2-3 weeks. Haven't done a water change in a bout 3 months which is how long I've been dosing and how long I've had the chaeto reactor ( a lot of my coral is sps).

While I appreciate the look in and comment, this thread is 3 years old. Nothing has been done drastically.



My tank is very simple(minus the apex), 80G display with 2 mp10's and 2 jebao pp8's, 30G sump containing a skimmer, algae turf scrubber, heater, carbon reactor( I have stopped using GFO), ATO, and return pump. Lighting consists of a 6 bulb ATI T5 setup with 2 reefbrite strips(Actinic and blue).



All the early on changes was me trying to fight the PO4 laden dry pukani from BRS. Now that that rock is gone from the display, tank's been good minus the recent mishap. Of course I did loose all my fish, but that was from not QTing some snails, not any drastic change.
