I started adding a little iodine shortly after just a couple of times a week , so not sure if this may have helped with getting monti's back to normal colour too

Thanks:

Yeh I,m staying with just softies for now as the frags I had off u died off after a couple of weeks so my water is just not upto it 
Yet . The coral goby was eating them but it was probably because they were dying off due to my nitrate's. Nitrate's are around 40 so a few more biggish waterchanges will lower that hopefully. But softies are thriving

I have 24 fish now so I better leave it at that for a while.  The new corals had Gha attached but I was late home with them so they went straight in the tank so will pick off as much as I can and do a waterchange later
