    Ive been at .22 for awhile. Not sure how long, calibrated my refractometer and it was off. It happens to the best of us.

    That's a bit on the high side :) I just saw your thread now, and was going to suggest checking salinity. It can be easy to overlook the "basics" when you think you have it down.

    Depending on how long it's been up there it might not be the only factor. Keep up with good husbandry and it will set you straight.

    It happens dude.

    I haven't been at work since last Wednesday and today when I went in my sump was 1/4" full and the pump was almost exposed to air. SP was 1.030 or higher. Polyps were all contracted and the sps looked bleak.
    I knew I wasn't going to be there wed-fri and asked a coworker to take care of my tank. So he fed the fish.... and thats it. Spent all day slowly adding more rodi and at the end of the day did a large water change as well.

    Like I said it only takes a few days of neglect for things to go bad, and months for it to get back to normal. Just stick with it.

    I'm just happy I found the problem. Stupid or not. :)
