Fed the jawfish directly. He's set up shop under the main piece of live rock in my tank. He actually ate out of the turkey baster.

I removed 1.5 gallons of water and replaced with 1.030 water to slowly raise it a bit. it's now reading 1.022. I will wait a few days and do the same thing again.

I got the urge to recalibrate my refractometer as I was worried about salinity readings... hoping that I was fine, and that it was just out of whack, I calibrated it.. and sure enough.. it was jacked.. unfortunately, it was jacked in that it was reading higher than it should.. so this means, instead of my tank running 1.023; it's actually running 1.020. I am raising the salinity slowly, as I type this.

Did a water change again.. it's been 2 days.. hopefully it helps with the slightly raised phosphate.. also, ph is kinda low @ 7.8

Still have an issue with slime. I checked my numbers and phosphate was the only thing that stood out. I can't tell if it's diatoms or dino. It's reddish brown.. def not cyno as meds didn't kill it. I'm leaning towards dino's for appearance.. looks like pictures without the bubbles. I added phosban today to see about getting the phosphates down. I will need to get a silicate tester if they are high.. shouldn't be though as i've added nothing that would leech it.

Fish and Corals checked out perfect this morning. I guess the temp spike didn't do much because it wasn't below the minimum.

Did a water change and forgot to heat the water before hand. Tank dropped 2 degrees.. note to self... never do a water change when you're tired.
