Tank is finally starting to clear up after the Kalkwasser MASSIVE overdose due to the ATO failure!! Took 5 days but tank seems like it might just survive with minimal losses. All fishes DOA as well all SPS but everything else seems to be pulling out of a dive.
Dosing vinegar through dilution all day for the four days. A drip every 10-15 seconds from a half gallon jug with 100 mL of White Vinegar. pH stayed steady at 8.1-8.2 through to whole clearing process.
Tank was at 9.9 pH the morning I found the tank SOLID white after ATO failed to shut off and dumped 1 full cup of Kalkwasser into the tank over the night.
Adding Muriatic acid to tank and mixed water to lower Alk
5mL to mixed tank
5mL via dilution to tank itself dripped in
Manufacturer of ATO...Innovative Marine contacted me via cell phone. Emailing him all info to get possible repair/replacement
