all LFS are close today and im in the middle of a 225g build. moved all my live stock that i wanted to keep into a temp tank and all has been well for two to three weeks. did water change sat and today almost all of my corals seem really stressed possible contaminante from water container or from swicthing to seachem salt not sure on that one.
i dont know if i should do a large water change on the temp tank or move them to the not quite complete 225 which has had about75 to 100 lbs of old live rock in it for five days and no skimmer

Good = ?

How about sg, pH, mg, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, ammonia, temp etc.

Did your substrate get stirred up? What do you have for flow and lights?

i just noticed a mh bulb that is cracked in half would the bulb have released anything into the water or just uv

i see now why the corals responded but not the fish not sure how i missed this but i suppose something is bound to happen during a transition like this

would it be best to put a new bulb in and allow the lighting cycle to finish or let the corals have a break from the lighting for the time being
