    negative coral reaction to cleaning scrubber

    I have a BC29 running a scrubber. It has been up for about a month now. GREAT growth!

    Problem is the 3 times that i have cleaned it I have massive polyp withdraw and my zoas retract a bit as well. Takes about a day for everyone to return to happy.

    Anyone have this experience or suggestions?

    I am scraping the 1 sided screen and rinsing in sink water. I shake it out a bit and place back in cube.

    Every time i clean my scrubber i get a small spike in nutrients for like 2 days while the algae grows back. The smaller the tank the more significant the spike can be. I would split it in half and clean one half at a time.
