Ok I thought I had my tank under control but maybe not. Last Sunday (the 29th) I moved my aquarium 2.5 hours away to a new location. Here's a timeline of what's happened:\n \nSunday July29: Tank was very dirty due to my absence for a few months and lack of water changes. Lots of normal green colored algae, water was in great need of a water change. Fish are still fine, Xenia appears to have withered up and shrunk.\n \nI make the mistake of cleaning the tank and doing about a 70-80% water change. I also make the mistake of mixing the salt and dumping it in instantly without waiting 24 hours to dissolve properly.\n \nMonday: Everything seemed fine at the time so I purchased a few frags... zoas, colt, torch, birdsnest..\n \nTuesday: Come home from work, tank has had an golden-brown algae bloom.. diatoms possibly? Glass is covered, when I clean the glass, it turns to a liquid and dissolves away.\n \nMy firefish was on his side and disoriented.. Torch coral has retracted almost completely.\n \nWednesday-Present time: I have been cleaning the tank and am now doing a proper 1 gallon water change (10g tank) daily starting today. I clean the tank in the evening, and 24 hours later the algae/diatoms are back. NONE of my zoas or corals will open up. I am worried that the algae is going to crust over them and kill them.\n \nSee attached pictures.\n \nNote: My water parameters are ok, I went to my LFS and had it tested (salinity was just a bit high at 1.030)\n \nShould I just keep doing daily 1g water changes and ride this thing out? Another concern I have is that my torch coral is compeltely retracted in... I can't see any of the actual polyps. And I have a margarita snail (astaria snail?) that hasn't moved in days. If these things are dead I don't want them to contaminate my water even more.
