    I’m cheap, try an aqualifter. If one doesn’t work, two in series will for sure.

    Put the Achilles in the hole (sump) for a few weeks and then reintroduce, then he’ll be the “fish”.

    Can rapid growth cause color fade?

    Alk and Ca too high, nutes too low.

    I’m pretty sure with the classic there is nothing you cannot do without the display. A while back my Apex went sideways on me and I couldn’t find the stupid display. I was able to fix it without.

    GFO Impact on pH

    I’ve noticed the same thing. If I remember right, the iron acts as a nucleation point for calcium carbonate precipitation. You would also see a drop in Ca and Alk. I also had carbonate build up on everything in my sump when I was running GFO, also my substrate was clumping. This is why I don’t like running GFO, it’s real easy to run too much and get your parameters swinging. Best to address why you have a nutrient problem rather than using a bandaid (GFO).
