    I would think with ammonia that high anything beneficial left in the rocks is long gone, even bacteria...i would do several water changes to get the level down so the rock can start to recover. I would imagine that this rock wont be good to use in a DT for several weeks...

    Can a Frag be Damaged by...

    Thats what i thought. Judging from where the flesh WAS left, it was freshly cut with a wet saw. It had very nice clean cuts. There was air in the bag...this is disappointing.

    Need Help with Protein Skimmer

    Even the directions say that once the skimmer is broken in that only the red knob on the outlet should be used to adjust flow, not the valve between the pump and skimmer. Like you noticed, when you dial down the flow with that valve bubble production stops. Sounds to me that you have the red...
