So earlier this year I was battling Cyano but while I was fighting it I was ignoring the signs my tank had been giving me and slowly but surely I was killing my tank it started with the brain corals then started on several small frags I had in my tank and finally when I began to pay attention my frogspawn and hammers totally receded. I also lost most of my CuC however the fish and shrimp were unaffected as far as I could tell.

My tunnel vision cost me around $700 in coral and about $130 in CuC no excuses on my part but it still hurt and I learned a hard lesson

FTS today surviving coral has made a remarkable comeback my hammers went through a severe necropsy and after much cutting and water changes saved both hammers and now are making a big comeback with new growth I decided to go softies in the tank and have gone mushroom and leather crazy and I am loving it and they are thriving in my tank

Did I miss what the reason was for the brain, frags and CUC dying? Was it the cyano itself or treatment or other? And is your front panel of glass wavy or am I drunk?
Looking good and glad things are doing better for ya
