    I've had a bag of ChemPure Blue in for about 2 months.
    Can the addition of the ChemPure strip the water and cause coral issues? shrinking, bleaching, death etc...
    The only filtration I'm using is Blue white sponge ontop of original black filter sponge then the ChemPure Blue bag in that order in a media rack.
    Tunze 9001 skimmer which is SUPER WATERY very light green tea color.

    Remove the ChemiPure and carbon/GFO if you're running either. You're stripping the water, especially for such a young tank.

    Also I have caught my CUC in my Birdsnest many times. Could they be eating it? Maybe that's why it looks like its dying?
    Red leg hermit crab will be all in between the branches.

    Ok after work today I will take the bag of ChemPure Blue out.
    I have no other filtration tho, will this be ok?
    All I will have will be blue white foam pad ontop of black filter sponge in the media basket & a Tunze 9001 skimmer.

    Yes, that's fine. I don't run anything other than a skimmer on my tank which is SPS dominant.

    Your CUC is probably eating the algae that's settling on your BN versus actually eating it, especially if it's truly a red leg hermit crab.

    I’d remove all the filters you have in place and just run skimmer along.
