    I upgraded my 75G reef tank to a 110G in February. The first few months were promising, and most of the coral was recovering nicely. Then a lost 90% of my fish unexplainable, and algae started to bloom everywhere. I am been fighting with it all summer, and losing the battle. Every time I test my water I am not seeing any Nitrates, Nitrites, or Phosphates (I have even tried two different brands of test kits). I am doing 30G water changes monthly. I have shortened my lighting schedule. I am looking for some friendly advice on what to try next.

    I am starting a Vlog on my tank and hoping to make one episode weekly. Check it out here to see what I am fighting with.

    For reference here is what it looked like in May.

    I had an algae problem, And lost all my snails in a tank and finally tracked it down to a cracked aqueon professional series heater. I would check all your equipment for an failures to see if there’s something leaching something into the water.

    My issue is I upgrade the size of my tank and not my equipment. Or that is what I believe the issue is. I have been very busy with work, but I am hoping to put some time into my tank soon.
