Check parameters Ammonia, Nitrite, Salinity etc.
Has something died?
Run carbon immediately

i have a little bit of carbon in already i also have a uv and a protein skimmer running. what do you think is the cause of the smell and the cloudiness

i did about a 50% water change there is less of a smell now but water is still cloudy. some of the acros are white though what do i do are they dead or alive?

Re check the parameters. Put in fresh carbon. Clean skimmer cup to rid the skimmer of the junk it has recently collected. If theres no flesh left then it could be dead. If possible give the acros to a close reefer to hold onto for the time being, or set up a makeshift emergency tank with a piece of your cured live rock, a few powerheads, your coral and hang your light.

everything was good except for calcium-200, iodide-4,ph-8.0(cant add any buffer if i do my alkilantiy will rise to a 7mql. had to turn skimmer off last night because it was not working properly. so corals could be dead?? a salesman at a local wholesaler told me they were still alive and that they are going to recover in a few weeks. is this true?? when did acros get flesh. the only problem is the acros all soft coral is ok dont know why though??
