So far looks like Mojano eradicating is successful, still need to spot treat some that we’re missed. Ugly green Zoanthids also eradicated.

Started to eradicate Mojano’s using Sodium Hydroxide on 08/29/20 using a solution of 3:1 on the right side rock structure including part of the rock with green Zoanthids. Continued on 08/31/20 with the middle structure and on 09/01/20 the left side structure using a solution of 8:1 which worked as needed. Spot treated middle structure with same solution. Using the original solution of 3:1 to get rid of the rest of the green Zoanthid colony on the right side. After weakening the solution I spot treated the right side.
Cyano is still pretty thick in places so will treat with Chemiclean next week.
Very happy with the results so far. There are still quite a few Mojano’s that will have to be treated over the course of the next few weeks.

I decided to raise the temperature in the tank from 79 to 83 degrees to see if it would help getting rid of Cyano.
Dosed Dr Tim’s refresh May 19, 2020 to get rid of Cyano, 300ml every 48 hours, 3 doses. Waste Away added on 05/26/20 600ml and 05/28/20.
Started 100 gallon water change at 20 gallons per day. No sign of purple clove polyps.

Saturday 04/04/20 @ 4:00pm added another dose 3x 225mg packets Fenbendazole as I want to see if a stronger dose has a better effect as well as trying to eradicate Mojano infestation.
04/03/20 @ 9:00 am dosed main display and sump with 3 x 225mg packets Fenbendazole.
After 24 hours most clove polyps appear to have retracted. No adverse issues found in any of the remaining coral or fish.
04/02/20 removed all snails and placed them in a separate 10 gallon tank as I am planning on treating main tank with Fenbendazole to eliminate infestation of purple clove polyps.
Mixed up 100 gallons salt water and added Potassium chloride to boost potassium level. Adding over a 2 week period.
Removed extension pipe into sump for overflow pipe,to reduce back pressure which allows water to flow.
Increase flow from calcium reactor to raise ph.
