Thanks. This was a nice recap. The 2 mL/gal cap is an interesting observstion. Not sure anyone would a priori have predicted this limit. There is still a lot to discover here, one thing being the non-reproducibility of successful dosing.

If you'd like to post your observations in the vodka dosing table thread, I think other people would be interested, and it'd be easier to find them.

I don't think it's a simple as a lack of tissue growth. I think the shortage of nutrients in a so called UNLS system makes it harder for the coral to direct skeletal growth for which they use ATP phosphate to mediate the caclio blastic fluid among other things. A nitrogen shortfall may also have an impact on zooxanthelae. With some PO4 and nitrogen , say PO4 at .02 to .of ppm and nitrate at.5 to 1ppm and alk in the 9 to 10dkh range there is no burnt tip syndrome in my tanks.
