Looks like things are a bit out of whack as well. Alk too high, ca and mag too low. Stop dosing alk and adjust the other two slowly.

Test your water to see if you have detectable copper.

In all my years I was not aware that carbon removes copper. Crazy. I had carbon running when I accidently added copper to my tank and lost everything.

 

Question, you have 2 threads running...one stating you are losing corals and the other trying to sell corals. Are these in a different system?

It's probably a simpler cause than something like copper. What were your nitrate and phosphate levels? Did you have Jeff check them for?

The carbon won't remove the copper itself... it removes the copper that is attached to other bio material.  as far as i am aware, copper is not attracted to carbon.  I may be wrong.
