My 'Never, say never again' reefer nano.

I thought it was about time i stuck a few pics up of my Redsea Reefer nano that i set up two years ago.
I live near Cardiff in Wales UK and have to travel to get any quality corals.
Mostly SPS, overstocked with fish (according to standard stocking levels).
10% water change religiously every week.
doser for KH and Calcium
Magnesium added when required
Temp 25 degrees stabilised by an STC1000 connected to heating and fan. (pic taken shows 26 degrees as just after maintenance and the probe was too close to the return.
Iodine and Strontium added twice weekly manually.
Radion G3 running at 58%
MP10 random patterns from 40% to 60% I change this often to mix it up a bit.
Deltec SC1351 (massively oversized) skimmer for 100 litres
TMC UV
Titanium heater, STC1000 and heavy duty fan set up
KH 9
Calcium 430
PH no longer monitored
slight trace of Nitrates and Phosphates
Tank fed heavily or else nitrates and phosphates zero so i need to do this to keep trace for corals.
SPS are ALL bought from frags and grow like weeds with no problems with colour or polyp extension.
Hope you like.

I'm loving the variety of corals. Black stand is cool too. I have a Red Sea reefer 170.

Acouple of youtube vids for daytime and twilight. Typically my normally thriving stylo has a 5 minute sulk whilst doing the daytime vid.

beautiful coral selection and aquascape.....looks like quite the setup for such a small tank but should be easy to keep the water parameters in check!

I don't care if it's common but Stylos are still one of my all time favourite corals.
