Noticed a bunch of small white dots on the blue hippo tang. They're bigger than white spots I've seen on other fish before. On his body and fins.
The green bubble tip does not seem to be doing all that well. Not sure he's gonna make it.
The clown seems to have a couple spots too. And the larger tang. Hopefully they get better. I'll keep adding garlic and vitamins to their food.

Increasing magnesium dosing to raise levels to 1600 for a month to try and get rid of briopsis.

Fiddled with the live rock today. Added 40lbs of big pieces of rock from Oranda and took out about 10lbs of smaller pieces I had. I think there's about 65 lbs of LR in there now. It stirred up the water quite a bit so I'm gonna wait to do a test til tomorrow. Not sure I could take another high nitrate reading right now.

Added Poly Filter to try and clean the water because I still can't figure out what's going on.

Woke up this morning to find the surviving firefish dead. I'm sure the last chromi is too, but I haven't found him yet.

Salinity was low today. I removed about a gallon of saltwater last night to do a coral dip. I think the water was replaced by RODI water and so the salinity went down. I added 2 gallons of saltwater to the ATO unit so as to raise the salinity over the next week or so to a target 1.025.

Went to check on the fish with my flashlight and found 2 chromis and the purple firefish dead. Only 8 hours after they went into the tank.
Tested for ammonia and found some levels of ammonia in the tank.
