Keep on dosing CoralSnow every other day after adding the sand, some kind of a brown film on the fresh sand is normal and does usually disappear within a couple of weeks.

I checked flow today & reset the reactor to 280 oz per minute which works out to 2.1875 gallons x 60 minutes = 131.25 gallons per hr. that is very close to the 130 gallons per hr you advised originally. also cleaned reactor pump. I will dose CS every other day for a couple weeks & see where Im at with brown film.
Cheers

so brown on the sand is gone now with CS & BM every other day. I switched out my lights for two Radion XR30 G4 Pros & the difference is astounding. good growth & healthier looking SPS. DT is stable it seems the last couple weeks so will consider some additives soon.

Thank you for the update, might the switch of the light be the reason why the brown film has disappear ? Difficult to say ….
