Very nice. Do you have a build thread? I am contemplating a 240 cube and would love to see how you have the rock work done and how it looked before everything grew in so nicely.

Unfortunately I don't have a build thread. Here is how the rock work used to look and how things grew over the years.

Beautiful tank! Do you mind sharing what intensity you keep your LED's at and for how long? I am extremely curious about this since you mentioned you might make the move back to halides. Thanks!

Thank you. No Kalk or vinegar. I tried vinegar for a little bit but it was not helping with anything.

I have a question about your "own blend" of food. What is it? How do you store it? And how do you feed it 4 times a day? I, too, love the movement of softies and lps. I have added anemones of all kinds to that mix. But so far, no nps. I have an Apex autofeeder and would love to utilize it to be able to feed the gonioporas.

Your tank is going to be my inspiration. Thanks for sharing it!
Michelle

Hi Michelle, I think you were not reading about my tank. I don't have my own blend. I use rods food. I don't have any soft corals in my tank either.
