Have my 180g 4 weeks running now after cycle, running a ATS (no skimmer). Bought a purple hammer frag (1 heads but starting to split) at the LFS, there were 3 frags of these all the same, heads inflated but not extended. Been in my tank now for 3 weeks and still the same, .. was at same LFS yesterday her last frag was the still the same.

My Params:

Temp: 77
Sal : 1.024
Ammonia : 0
Nitrates : 0
Nirates : 0
ph : 8.1
Lights : 3x 165w LED fixtures, lights are on a lunar cycle at peak, aka noon time; whites peak at 20, blues 70, purples 80.

Coral is on bottom rock in tank.

I am growing coraline algae on the rocks, system just too clean?
