Thanks!

Im going to get some LPS corals like Caulastrea furcata, Trachyphyllia geoffroyi, Euphyllia and Fungia maby not all sorts but some of these.

The sand is just added in the foto but it is still this clean and white

I have a lot of makroalge in the picture most of it is gone now.

Thanks

Im adding 5-6 Chromis cyaneus and some LPS in a month or so.

Think that will do the tank more colorful

Looks great now but I liked it better with all of the macro algae. With the openness of the rocks it looked lagoon like

if you look at mine it looks grubby, it is clear, however not spotlessly clean, i too use ro-di and have a lot of cuc, but it still looks grubby, usually i stir it very gently and then it looks fine for acouple of days but just does not ever look crisp and white like yours

It has to be moved often for the sand to stay white and clean but i like yours to seems more natural.
