    try a low to medium flow and see how that goes for 24 hours.... if that does not work i can put it in my tank for a couple of days to see if it will open back up for you.

    I’ve moved it to slow/medium flow. See how it gets on. My water is fine. Not sure why it’s being a recluse! Weird. I’ll keep you posted. Thank you for the kind offer!!!

    Liam your dkh is 5.6 which is very low ..this needs to go up ...your salt is 0.126 which is smack on... calcium is 430 which is fine... Magnesium is 1600 which is high ...this will be the salt you are using but should go down over time a long time ...but dkh is more important to sort out at the moment that should be at least 8.0 to keep your corals happy.

    Cheers Gary. If I was change the salt, what is the best one to get?
    I’ll look at getting an additive to stick in.
    Would I be best off getting a load of stuff from RedSea?

    you need a salt with low magnesium in it when doing water changes and the lowest i know of is Kent Marine marine salt which is 1200ppm ...i would get a small box of it to try out and as you do the water changes over the next few months it will drop, as it is at the moment every think in there should be ok with the magnesium as it is, but you do not what to keep using what ever salt you are using at the moment as it will never drop.

    I think this could of been when you did the last water change as i belive you did a big one ?

    Anyway i think once you get the dkh back up every think will be in place and back to normal... if you can't get any Reeflowers KH Blend soon give me a call and i will sort you some out to get you over.

    Thank you!

    I did a 20% water change last week. May have upset the apple cart.

    I’ve ordered the reef flower stuff to help with my dKh. That’ll arrive on the 1st apparently. Going to order a 1kg if the Kent stuff to see if that helps with the magnesium issue.
