It was because I didn't test the water at the time believing by changing water 10% every two weeks will be OK. It turns out the IO Reef Crystal salt may have low alkalinity and calcium. I used to use H2O salt.

Anyway I started to test and dose, now it is fine.

So I just installed another Reef Brite LED just for the following frags

It definitely helps ease the anxiety I'm sure but not necessary imo.

If you can put it somewhere perpendicular to the joists that is always best or near an outside/supporting wall. 100G tank shouldn't be a huge issue though, I put a 75G in recently and it seems to be A OK.

Yes the support is there to ease our anxiety. For long term it should be better than no support.
