Just when things started to calm down on the noisy drain front; this. lt started as a few little pink specks in the sand. I naively thought nothing of it; just another colorful bit to the saltwater aquarium. yeah. Now it’s everywhere. Covering the sand, on my live rock, up the glass. I’ve been siphoning and stirring up the sand. I’ve added filter socks to catch what’s stirred up and then remove and clean them. I bought a Gyre to increase flow but ended up dialing it back to 10% flow most of the time because more looked like a storm at sea and sent the fish running for cover in the rocks. I’ve tried to minimize the amount I’ve been feeding them (they always behave like they’re starved but I don’t think they are. I checked alkalinity and it’s over 8. Other numbers seem fine. l’m wondering what the prognosis is. I assume I’m not the first to go down this road, what did you all do and how effective was it? Thanks
