Yeah, but it just doesn't represent the colors adequately. But I hear that's a common problem with LEDsكل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

Well, one of my chromis dies last night. I wasn't able to test the water this morning before I left, but it had been just fine last I checked. It was the runt, though. Only two things occur to me.
One, I had spent an evening at my folks house, turned the thermostat off, not expecting it to go higher than 75 but came back to the tank at 82 degrees.
The other is simply that I started dosing (with Kent) for dKH.
Everything else in the tank is fine, even great. Including the new Seriatopora, which I would think is far more sensitive than a chromis.كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

It looks good to me!

Got some close ups of the new coral today:
Also, got what I think is a MUCH better pic of the ricordea.
What's odd is there were two polyps and I put them next to one another and as of a couple hours ago, I can't find the second one.كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

So, recently I've been having more and more trouble keeping my alk up, but my calcium doesn't seem to be falling much at all.
Think it could have anything to do with the recent algae problem or is it just the clam? I will say, the crocea's outer shell has a LOT of white recent growth.
Also, now that I've got like a liter of Kent dKH buffer I went ahead and ordered a turquoise maxima from Liveaquaria.كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

Well, the Maxima is here, but I have bad news
I'm pretty sure I have a dinoflagellate outbreak. Lots of long stringy/gooey brown stuff with air bubbles.
I've heard reducing photo period and increasing PH can help.
Thinking of following this article's advice. What do you think?كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

So, an update. I'm still fighting the dinoflagellates, but I haven't gotten carbon or kalkwasser in yet.
Here's a pic of the Maxima
It's doing well, I think.
I also took pictures to document the fresh growth on my crocea:
It appears to be growing quite swiftly.كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

I keep several giant clams, and I strongly suggest you read my article on them. It's too late to site them properly, but both belong on live rock, not the sand.

They're both on live rock, but the substrate kinda started to accumulate over them. But the Byssal Threads are both solidly attached to separate rocks.
Also, I did read the article. Very good. I hadn't heard about that PH thing before, so that was good to know.
