Found out my buddy that was holding my coral colonies did not do as well in the storm. I ended up with 2 colonies that survived but not in great shape. He was nice enough to cut me some generous frags from his main system to help me start over though.

Looking good, so far. Nice light combo.
Nice scape!
That ‘brain’ shot makes my brain hurt.

Been awhile since my last update. This tank has been slow going and decided to let it mature some. Finally got my water station to a more functional level before Thanksgiving which has been a big help.

I decided to simplify my lighting, removing the halide, lowering the kessil and T5's after getting some inspiration from a fellow reefer. After a couple weeks I noticed improvements with color and growth which were both pretty stagnant. I have been slowly raising the intensity every week since. I have also started to add some additional corals to the tank now that I feel it is stable and I have the lighting dialed in.
