    Hmmm.... maybe explain what the "madness" is.

    Also we require the following FIRST to be able to advise:

    1. System Info
    Tank Size
    Sump Size
    Amount of Live Rock in Tank and Sump
    Filtration what do you do:
    skimmer make and model
    Do you have a DSB
    Do you use some sort of Cheato or other plants for nutrient export.
    What lighting do you use
    How do you feed your corals (if at all)

    Then Live Stock info:
    What corals are they - how long have you had them
    What Fish do you have in the tank
    Amount of fish
    Type of fish

    Then some water parameters - Crucial
    What is:
    The type of test kit you using - have you checked its expire date?
    Below please specify the type of measurement you are using i.e. PPM or Total PP04 (in case of Phosphate)
    1. Ammonia:
    2. Nitrite N02:
    3. Nitrate N03:
    4. Phosphate P04
    5. PH:
    6. Calcium:
    7. Magnesium:
    8. Alkalinity (KH):

    I know it looks like a lot but try and fill in as much as possible, this allows us to diagnose and aid you in a much more constructive way.

    Also a PICTURE of the tank would be great too for us to see he shape it's in.

    I asked you some questions in your other thread, let's take it from there. You don't have to start more threads on the problem.

    Groote van Tank en Sump...wat is die groote van jou DSB...
    Watse Coral het jy in jou Tank..?
    Hoe lank het jy dit...
    Watter ligte gebruik jy...
    Wat baie belangrik is...is die feit dat ons jou uitslae van die "toetse" moet sien...
    ...Kalsium...magnesium..eg..

    Jou Alkalinity lyk baie hoog vir my...het jy SPS Corals...? Ek sou se miskien 9-11 as jy SPS het...ek staan onder korreksie angesien ek nie het nie...wat is jou Magnesium en Calsium...?

    Die 3 "werk tesame"...die feit dat jou ALK so hoog is laat my glo dat MAG en CAL ook uit balans is...kry toetse vir hulle...dis die eerste stap wat ons kan doen...hulle is baie belangrik...kry daardie 3 reg en dan vat ons dit verder...

    Ek weet nie watse Kits jy gebruik nie...maar ek gebruik Salifert...
    [​IMG]
    Die "water additives" wat ek gebruik is Aquavitro....
    aquavitro . calcification Calsium
    aquavitro . eight.four Alkalinity
    aquavitro . ions Magnesium

    'n Mens moet altyd die Magnesium eers opbring tot die regte vlak, dan die ander twee...anders sal jy elke dag ingooi en niks kom daarvan nie...

    maar as die pink pers alg op die klip en glas grooi beteken dit nie dat die tank gesond is nie en ek het alerande klein wit goed wat soos srimpes lyk in my fulterkous as ek hom skoon maak

    Kyk ook na jou pH. As jou Alk so hoog is, is daar ook 'n kans dat jou pH uit is - dit kan veroorsaak dat jou koraale vrek.

    Jy't ook nog nie gese watter " madness" jy gedoen het nie.
