Nice, very nice. Is this a dedicated NPS tank? I thought I saw a Red Chili in the background.

Thank you, it is mostly NPS ( about 90%), sun corals, dendros, chili coral and few gorgonians.

Well done! Is the tank dedicated to NPS only? How long have you kept the NPS Gorg, chili & other small polyped NPS alive? Feeding details?

Thank you, tank is mostly NPS with most of them being suns and dendros. I have few gorgonians, not sure of their names. The gorgonians and chili coral are in my tank for 3 months now, and are doing great. I feed my yellow suns and dendros every other day and my black suns every day. I feed mixture of mysis,brine shrimp and fish eggs to them. Also every other day I broadcast mixture of rotifiers, reef chili and reef roids over chili coral and gorgonians. Also, since most of my fish are deepwater anthias, I also feed cyclops and other foods to them 2-3 times a day. So, my corals and fish get fed very well :). I am planning to experiment with other small polyp NPS, to see how they do in my system. For filtration I use my awesome ATI Powercone skimmer and 6L of siporax in sump. I do carbon dose vodka to keep nitrates low. I believe my gorgonians and chili coral benefit from all the extra bacteria in water column from carbon dosing. I manually dose Ca and Alk as needed and few drops of lugols once a week. Low light, so no algae can grow easily and good clean up crew, especially my nassarius snails to keep my sand bed clean of any uneaten food leftovers. That's about it, simple.
