I love having a heavily stocked tank with all fish to give it some movement and it's the first thing people always notice.

All the fish have their own hiding spots and aggression has been minimal. I have achieved this by feeding the tank heavily 3-4 cubes of frozen twice a day, sheet of nori once a day and NLS pelleted 4 times a day with an auto feeder. With all the bio load and heavy feeding my nutrient export has been sufficient.

Last set of test results from early today with
Red Sea test kits
P-.02 ppm
N-.25 ppm
Sounds amazing, throw us a FTS when you get a chance

Well had the bright idea of moving small piece of rock.....several hours later, many a curse words, fingers encrusted in epoxy and crazy glue I redid the aqua scape. Still have to mount a few more frags but pretty happy with it so far.

Corals are looking great. What is the filtration on the tank other than the massive deltec skimmer?

For mechanical filtration besides the Deltec use large felt filter sock changed out every 3 days or when starts to overflow.

For biological filtration have been using the big brick of marine pure and 2 gallons on the spheres. Also have a cryptic zone with about 20ish pounds of live rock ruble.


Plumbed into the system is my 65g display Fuge witch various macro algae. Not sure how much nutrient export it does but don't think it hurts.

Also run 1 1/2 cups of carbon in a reactor changed monthly

What do you use to keep no3 and po4 from spiraling upward with such a heavy fish load?

I feel the skimmer removes most of the organics from the water this is the collection cup cleaned about 2 days ago



All The marine pure media does a great job of keeping No3 low and I assume what macro algae I do have in the Fuge helps to keep Po4 in check. Trimmed every 2 weeks



I also suck out as much detritus as possible from sump, frag tank and display tank sand bed during weekly water changes of approx 10-20 gal

Last set of test results from 3/21 all done with Red Sea test kits

Po4 .04ppm this current system has always been between .04-.08
No3 .25ppm usually test between 0-.25

Alk 7.8
Ca 400
Mg 1300
Iodine .06
Iron .05-.15
K 410

Do you use any kind of gel filter or post processing to compensate for the super blue of the bulbs and give the more natural 10k look? I love that color
