Exclamation Dumb mistake regarding heater, now bleaching

Hi everyone,
Soo, my girlfriend likes playing around with my AC in the house.
‘She’s cold...”
Anyway my chiller is a aqua medic titan 1500
And is set to 26 c
I came home to a very hot house “the ac was on heat!”
And saw my chiller struggling so I did the dumbst thing
I turned the heater outlet off on my apex and turned the house ac to 17 c and went to bed .
I woke up to a tank at 22.1 c all the inhabitants and corals didn’t show any signs of stress/
I turned the heater back on and slowly brought it to 24 c
A day later 25c
I don’t know if I’m imagining bleaching of some Australian acros are becoming pale at night around the bottem
I don’t know what to do or expect
Would love some input especially if there is a way to stop the bleach.

Have you had the chiller switched off over night also and switched it back on in the morning so the water inside the chiller was pumped directly back in the tank ?

A temperature of 22 degree C is low however if the time range was not to long corals should tolerate it.

Than it might be indeed a problem of the low temperature. Not much you can do, temporary reduce the flow of your ZeoVit reactor a little bit and continue dosing as usual. At the moment I would not replace the ZeoVit material or the carbon. Keep the water parameters as stabile as possible and give the corals some time.
