I spent months researching treatments and building up the courage to dose the entire system. Finally, after a big dose of fenbendazole, the tank was close and gsp free. Then came the inevitable algae bloom. I handled it in stride with water changes and within two t over reacting. Iím coming out the end of it now. Corals are coming back strong. Lost a couple things that make me sad.

In the end I donít know what happened. I personally feel I motivated the damage as best as possible and am going to come out with Project Mayhem V.2

Iím going through similar, losing a good chunk of SPS and canít stop it. Not sure what worked for you? I have been doing water changes, tested all parameters and everything is spot on. Is it possible that the salinity swing would take its toll still weeks after?

I'm going to swing by BSC tomorrow and pick up more clean up crew. Things are starting to really take off, but I don't want to place anything until the algae is near non-existent.

I tossed another BK skimmer into the sump to see if it can pull anything additional out of the water but honestly I think the sand needs a vacuum. Anytime I bumped into it while scrapping the glass a little puff of detritus kicked up, time for a cleaning!
