    Really wish I can give out some of my surviving corals but wouldn't want anyone to get dino. Going to just keep on doing water changes till things get better.

    1) Cut your lights back and get a bacteria (Dr Tims, Nitrobactr, Fritzyme, Stability, etc) going.
    2) Siphon dinos twice a day...stay on it.
    3) If you don't have GAC, get some going
    4) If you don't have any macro algae, get some chaeto going
    5) Set up a 20g Quarantine tank up with a sponge filter (seeded from anyone you know's fuge)...put frags of your favorites in here...change 5g water and add bacteria every 3days

    Good luck!

    [QUOTE=ninjamyst;383818]RODI is 0-5 TDS, even with new filters and RO membrane. Alk is 8.5 - 9.

    And obviously this TDS IS while the ro unit is filling? I only ask the obvious because I made that mistake before.

    Good luck...

    I hate when I see tanks crash. I hope you get it turned around.
