    Kevin, was this your first time dosing? Its recommend to dose at 60% and then increase.. I seriously hope you do not get RTN on some of your weaker corals or darker corals... This stuff is VERY powerful. I REALLY hope it works out for you ok.... I never turn the skimmer off unless I does bac and food.. I think thats the censensus... Again I reallyhope your corals hold up well.. I have dosed 4 times and I am only dosing at 75% with excellent results...

        SPUR2 correct? What are your nutrients at? Its best used in late stage 2 or stage 3.. I would be happy if you are not seeing results.. I think you def overdosed for a first dose...

          spur2 will show real gd result unless your nutrient level is low...
          if it's high then dosing spur2 wont have much result and u cant see the change...

                  Now im confused. Im kinda leary about skimming out the spur. my skimmer is nutty. 1400 etss its reallly effective. hopefully ger or bob can chime in. to make the deciding votes. thanx for the info guys. I still want a full tank pic jeff.

                    My fault I totally screwed up, I meant to say skimming is fine. I do skim I just said that wrong and will now edit it. Sorry for the confusion.

                      Kevin as Jeff as Jeff and Brad have already mentioned you should continue to skim. Usually the only time the skimmer is shut of is after a dose of bak/food for about 1 hour.

                        Kevin, Jeff, Brad & Dustin are correct, one dose not turn off the skimmer when dosing Spur2. Also be sure the dose mixes well & do not dose directly into the main display if at all possible. Also, Kevin, if the majority of your corals are Fiji,[So. Pacific] Spur2 has less effect on these coralsBob

                            As Jeff mentioned, Kevin, you're going for the gusto right off the bat But actually, Kevin determining the correct dosage of Spur2 is difficult as many factors affect it's action on our corals. Do you have any Monti caps, as these seem to respond well for Spur2 titration? Bob
