Everything just looks healthy and thriving.

I have a couple of questions if you dont mind.

What happened to that huge ball shaped frogspawn you used to keep on the left? It looks like its still in your avatar pic?

How often do you run carbon with a softie tank like yours?

Do you get any shadow problems since the fixture your using is shorter than your tank length?

Thanks and great tank!
Weird- I swear I answered your questions 2 days ago but not I don't see my reply anywhere...

Anyway, the ends of the tank are a little darker, but it's barely noticeable. I ran some PAR numbers a while back and the sandbed on the ends was around 75 while the middle of the tank was around 150.

I do run carbon, but I use a small amount. Usually around 1/4 cup of ROX 0.8 in a TLF reactor. I think it's the 10 gallon weekly water changes that help with the soft coral toxins, and the fact that the colonies all grew up together (almost everything you see in there started out as a 1" frag and has grown out together)

Thanks for the compliments!
