    Hey masa
    My tank so far after 8 months.
    I been having problems with cyano and high nitrates and low calcuim levels.
    Ive started dripping kalk and raised my kalk to 420.
    Im in the process of adding a algae scrubber to help with my phosphate levels.
    Im also adding a reactor with matrix to help with nitrates.

    In the last 2 weeks since ive been dosing with calcuim pro and dripping kalk , ive noticed a big change in my corals , they all open up nicely and the colours are bright.
    Also have noticed that the algae and caulerpa on my lr is getting less.

    When is the right time to add a nennie for my clowns to host ?

    When you've fixed all of the above problems. :) You're taking all the correct steps so far, so once you are not having any more issues and your tank parameters are stable then you can consider an anemone, they can be very sensitive to bad water parameters and having an anemone die in your tank is going to cause even more problems.
    Make sure you know your alkalinity and magnesium levels before making big adjustments to your calcium, all 3 of these elements need to be monitored and kept in balance.

    Good luck with the changes. Keep us posted. :thumbup:
