    No complaints today! Took me a while but I've finally figured it out that boohooing about my tank doesn't really help-lol.
    Going to take on the task of cleaning out my fuge area. Although my Turbo Snail has been going to town in there, still to much for him to handle on his own.
    All else is well

    Well I started dosing Vibrant Thursday night. 6ml 3x so far, tonight being the 3rd dose. A bit more often than the directions called for of 2x a week but I'm desperate.
    The brown nastiness that was covering the back wall has turned white.
    Generally 24-48hrs after a WC and sand removal the SB would once again begin turning brown, within 7 days it was big brown stringy slimy patches everywhere.
    Now 24hrs after a WC the sand is still pretty white. Haven't had to clean my glass in 3 days. I'm remaining optimistic.
    Stay tuned.....

    Good to hear, I hope it continues for you. Are you using the reef version?

    Hopefully this works.
    But I'm wondering,,,,,,,,,if it works as advertised and the crud goes away. Do you have to keep using it, in a maintenance dosage?

    Yes to Reef version. It's definitely doing something. My skimmer is nasty and half full within 2 days. My Filters socks are worse! As of this evening sand bed is still clean. No ill effects on livestock or corals at all.
    I do gotta say though my SB is getting pretty darn thin. I can also see just how bad it solidified around the bottom of the rock, my Candy Cane, my Christmas Favia, and my Acans. It's terrible! Never seen sand do this before.

    Vibrant states you can stop or continue using as part of your maintenance program.

    Look at the bottom of the rock. That's all solid sand, literally rock hard. It's like this under all my rock.

    More pics of how this sand has reacted around the base of everything that sits on it.

    That's most likely from the ca and alk. It binds arragonite sand into concrete.

    Did another WC, removing more SB. However today I decided to add some new to the bare bottom areas. Just a small area to begin with about a 2 1/2 cups worth. WOW it's pretty!!

    Big shout out to @mfinn for once again coming to this reefers rescue. My tank now has the best flow going on. Didn't know so much crap was caught up in my rock until I turned on the new Jebao's PP8's. Yes they're monsters but I'm a futuristic thinking kinda woman as in always open to going bigger-lol.
    My tank is doing wonderful of late. SB cleared up. Corals all thriving. Banggai on the mend.
    Couple weeks I'll be adding some carbon via a reactor. Changing out my DI resin after 8-9 months use not bad at all I'd say.
    I'm so stoked that my Clam is doing so well.
