Salt Water Aquarium: Summer 2019 Update


Not much has really grown with the aquarium in the last several months. I saw a bit of a coral die off, but still have yet to really figure out a cause. I investigated lighting, and water chemistry, but neither of which seemed to be an issue. At this point I am suspecting low water flow being a suspected issue. The fish however are all healthy.

I am thinking that I want to redesign my sump system. Make it easier to clean and such. Currently, I am finding that my filtering media is getting too full of waste, and I am really unable to get in there to clean it out. But! My Phosphates, and Nitrates and Nitrites are all very low. So, I don't think that that aspect of the chemistry is the cause.
