Still at my baby steps with sps but today I clearly noticed this. About 45 min after a 20 gal water change, I could see polyps on many of my colonies and frags. My system is about 200gal total. Very interesting to see the almost immediate reaction. I change 2 gal automatically every night but still do a bit larger WC every other week. These two corals are a green goblin and a plating acro

I have set up a dosing pump and I'm taking the water out of the skimmer section and I'm returning water where my return pump is. I read lots of contradicting litterature on WC but I figure it adds up over time and help.

are you using two dosing pumps one to remove tank water and one to add fresh mixed salt water?

yes I do. They work simultaniously so that my ATO does not run like crazy.
