Got the new doser set up, also got my red sea sailfin after trying for a few weeks.
Went for the red sea over the Pacific as it's colours are much better.
will try and stick some pics up tomorrow

Just a update, had a breakout of bubble and hair algae, not sure where it came from as all test were within acceptable ranges.
Not sure if the quantum bio enhance had anything to do with it, so stopped all my dosing and started regular fortnightly water changes. I carried out a 3 day blackout and it seemed everything was taking a turn for the better.
started of with lights on for 4hrs max and gradually increased to 6 hrs.
all fish leopard wrasse, chalk goby, banana wrasse and red sea sailfin tang and corals--hammer head, Duncans, candy cane, red monti, Turbinia and various goniopora's all doing well during this time.
I lost my tamarin wrasse but that I think was down to my stupidity with not keeping on top of feeding. But the algae issue started around the same time.
Anyway the bubble algae started getting worse again and the hair algae returned.
I was at the stage of ripping everything out and giving it a good clean but someone suggest Reef Vibrant as a last resort.

Well been using it for two weeks and hair algae has started to turn white and come away from rock work,
bubble algae is starting to turn clear and also coming away. So looks like it is working but got a little longer before I can say it has cleared up.
will try adding some pics I have taken before starting vibrant tomorrow as everytime I try at moment it comes up error.

Thanks:

Starting to fall in love with my tank again.
Been dosing Reef vibrant for 3 weeks, all algae including bubble algae gone.
Finally got my red sea sailfin Tang which is more colourful than the Pacific ones.
My yellow tamarin wrasse died.. was warned they were hard to get to settle.
Apart from that everything is running great using the quantum range, will give it a few weeks and start dosing all the quantum bio's as planning on going to no water changes apart from maybe 2-3 a year as find my tank does better with less water changes.

I'm loving the rockwork arrangement, just goes to show you need depth of field with a reef tank, that way you can get separation from corals. I went with shallow (front to back) but longer, great for more fish swimming lebensraum, but not so good for coral placement.
As I'll keep almost exclusively softies and maybe one or two sps, I'm not too bothered.
My family members are more interested in fish anyway, truth be told I suppose I am too as they move about ahell of  alot more so give you something to look at.

Great to see you’ve had a turn around after your setback Amo. The frags below you gave me are doing great 6 months on. Grateful to you every time I look in the tank. Your set up is looking stunning!

Reef vibrant worked great.. But think the snails didn't get on with it.. Out of about 15, 7 have died.. Unless the wrasses have been fine dining.
Anyway gonna carry on with the reef vibrant on a weekly basis, 4ml a week and gradually bring it down to zero.
Also just added the quantum bio active colour intensifiers
Which consist of bio Kalium, bio gen, bio metals and bio enhance.
Good thing about these 4 is you can mix them together in equal amounts to connect up to the doser.

Elegance coral opened fully and just noticed it has two months so hopefully once it has settled in may split.

Nice, since when did hanna do a nitrate tester for marines?
When I looked a few months ago that wasn't available.
