I feed too much. I feed live clams, live bloodworms, mysis shrimp, spectrum pellets, frozen spirulina algae, algae sheets, and frozen angel formula with sponge. Most of these I alternate, but i feed mysis twice daily.

I think I got the bubbleking skimmer from PA, but I'm not sure it was a long time ago.

I was trying to free up the middle a bit where most of the current goes and moved the large green cap. Originally my design is two islands with the current going in circles around each island. A lot of flow is designed to go between the islands. Apparently the coral like this as they've grown in the middle, to the point where flow is more limited. I'm actually going to weed out more coral tomorrow, try and further improve flow.

Congrats on the TOTM. Tank is truly stunning. May I ask how on earth you were able to get a moorish idol to live?

Hi Tylor,

You have an extraordinary reef aquarium!!! Has your moorish idol ever bothered your coral?

Great looking tank! It's almost the same measurements of the upgrade I am currently planning.

Is there anything that you would've done differently with this one if you could get a "do-over"?

Thanks,

Chad
